OEM Honda NA1 NSX-R Shift knob. Available only with the 1993-1995 NSX Type-Rs, this shift knob is a very special piece.
Weighing in at 171 grams the NSX-R shifter is much smaller and considered a more enjoyable driving experience in comparison to the Zanardi / Type S shifter which is larger and weighs 267 grams.
There are several benefits to having a smaller shift knob on a car, such as:
- Improved shifting: A smaller shift knob can provide a better grip and allow for more precise shifting, which can be beneficial for performance driving or track use.
- Reduced weight: A smaller shift knob can also reduce the weight of the shifter, which can result in a more responsive and precise feel when shifting.
- Increased clearance: A smaller shift knob can also increase clearance between the shift knob and the driver’s leg, which can be beneficial for taller drivers or those with limited legroom.
- Aesthetics: Some drivers may prefer a smaller shift knob for its sleek, minimalist appearance.
- Better grip: A smaller shift knob can provide a better grip, which can be beneficial for performance driving or track use.
It’s important to note that installing a smaller shift knob can also have some downsides such as making it harder to shift, especially for drivers with larger hands. It’s best to try the shift knob before buying and installing to make sure it feels comfortable for you. Also, it’s important to make sure that the shift knob you choose is compatible with your car’s shifter mechanism.
