I figured I would make one post to give everyone a quick overview of the TWM Performance line up of shift knobs we offer for your cars.
As you can see here, and as you may already know, TWM Performance
offers the most extensive line of products to improve the shift feel in your vehicle and the overall look of you interior. All of this is done while retaining OEM, or better, fitment and providing the highest quality materials available on the market today.
TWM Performance line up of high end stainless steel weighted shift knobs
When upgrading to a TWM Performance short shifter, people often thing that they have done everything to improve the shift feel of their vehicle. They often forget the benefits that a heavy weighted shift knob can have on the shifting feel of a car. A heavier shift knob carries more kinetic energy and momentum with it when set in motion than a stock, lighter shift knob. This effect of carrying more momentum makes the shift knob more difficult to stop when set in motion, so it essentially helps you engage the next gear. This results in a smoother shift feel with less direct effort required from the driver to engage the next gear. Basically a heavier shift knob smooths out the shift feel, and almost makes the shift feel effortless.
The other great advantage of a TWM weighted shift knob, and another exclusivity in the industry, is our NTIS® technology. A universal shift knob that retains the stock thread-on design and that is fully height adjustable. TWM shift knobs are the ONLY
shift knobs in the industry with these features and it means they can be installed in virtually every car with a threaded shifter shaft. In the case of the Corvette with a stock shifter, threading the stock shaft can easily be done with a regular Die.
All TWM weighted shift knobs are available in 5 different and durable finishes as pictured below:
Showcased here are the all of the shift knobs we offer.

is one of our best selling shift knobs. It’s round shape fits perfectly in the palm of the hand and weighing in at 460 grams, solid and precise shifts are assured all the time, every time.
