According to ancient PVT texts, a Runner’s shift knob be the shape of an orb and fit firmly in the palm of your hand. No bigger than 2 inches. Heavy enough to have a throw that will give it the right amount of inertia to throw into gear and light enough to shift fast.
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.
