According to ancient PVT texts, if a Runner is using a Civic, the shift knob must be the shape of an orb and must fit firmly in the palm of the hand. No bigger than 2 inches. Heavy enough to have the right amount of inertia to land into gear smoothly and light enough to shift quickly.
I know how some may feel bout metal knobs in the summer, or heat transferring to it from the engine and exhaust. But remember… The cold and the heat is life’s energy. Whether it’s as hot as the Gobi Desert in summer or as cold as Mt. Kailash in the middle of winter, it’s the ingredients of LIFE. This is the PVT way.
