Thumbs up Strange Request

I doubt anyone will, but there is no harm in asking. I need to borrow someone's STi titanium shift knob to take all sorts of measurments so I can make a copy of it on my buddies CNC machine. I AM NOT GONNA STEAL IT OR SWITCH IT FOR A KNOK OFF! Like I said before, I doubt anyone will, but if someone can help me out, that'd be awsome.

Rich

PS. I'd need it for about 3 or 4 hours and I'd give you my shift knob (leather) until I returned the knob. Please

Dude why don't you make a copy of the nice, round WRC one that you can only find for like $150 instead of the stupid piston one that was a factory option on the WRX? The piston one is just not meant to fit in the palm of your hand and the WRC one is no nice and smooth.

AND, I know Auto Innovations has one that is just sitting in their shop. I bet they would let you borrow it. Also Suby Dude has them in stock I believe, and I bet he'd let you take measurements if you wanted to. Good luck and may you choose the right knob.

Well, I want the STi for now, but if a WRC knob is available I'll do it to.

Thumbs down

Have you tried the titanium knob? It sucks. My car came with it and it was the first thing I got rid of. The groves have sharp edges and it gets HOT in the sun. Very uncomfortable to shift with.

Yea, I had the titanium knob. I took mine off and got a nice round Prodrive. Fits in the palm of my hand. I have the STi one in my golve compartment and I might let you borrow it, but I'm Sacto. I'm very willing to sell it also for a reasonable offer.
