Good deal... my Momo was $75 and it did not last. That leather wore away quickly and it always comes loose due to the tri-screw system

Hopefully the Momo didn't mangle your thread as badly as mine.. I found out every time I retighten it bores a deeper hole deeper in the metal.. the only way around it is to custom make a plastic threadable collar I think

From the looks of it, the shift knob on the 1st gen CL has the same thread as most of the other MT Acuras. I don't know if it's the same size since I don't have a 1st gen CL to work with, but it looks promising from the pictures i've seen.

Sorry for the lack of updates guys. I was told at the beginning of last week that I will need to find another job as my company is being dissolved on July 16th.

I'm still going ahead with the knob orders in another facility but I'm going to need a couple weeks to get everything straightened out. The good thing is, this new facility has even better equipment than my current company so the final products are going to be even better.

I apologize for the delay but I promise it will be worth the wait.

Thanks for the encouragement. I have a couple interviews lined up this week so hopefully things will all work out for the better.

Yea, the Ultimate Pedals group buy was back in December and a bunch of people got in on it. Supercomputers is trying to get some pedals made up - but haven't heard anything as of yet. Check here for more info.

sorry to hear about your job, I hope you find another one soon.

for the shift knob, what size threading will you make the inside? I don't think i've seen a knob as heavy as this. one of the best knobs i've seen is a skunk 2 and it's lighter then yours.
