I'm thinking of changing my stock shifter knob on my 6-speed to the C5R style. Has anybody done this and if so how is the feel?

Thanks for the reply, except I want to use the C5R style handle, not a T-Handle. The t-handle looks great and I use to have on other cars. It's great for slamming gears and that's where I used it, when I drag raced. My C5 is a street car and I am simply looking for something different the the stock knob that has a different look.

I bought a C5R shifter knob. Since it screws on with no set screw, it tends to loosen quickly. A little teflon tape helped but didn't stop it, only slowed it down. It was OK for a while (a novelty I guess), but I ended up getting a Momo Anatomico tall. Far better IMHO. Together with a new Hurst billet shifter it is truley slick!

I have been looking for small (1 7/8-2.0") white shift knob like the C2 era, that will fit my stock C5 shifter (9/16-18). I have the Hurst 2 1/4" knob, but it is too big. Ecklers shows a black one, but not white. Any ideas?
