Digital shift knob for manual

I ran across this ACS knob on the CEC website. Pretty whack!



I couldn't find a price, but since their standard aluminum knobs are $412, I can only guess!

Edit 2/16: Price from CEC is $499.

In Germany it costs € 300 and that's 50% more than the aluminum knob is here.


Best regards, south

Not really a fan, but this is the Indy-Cator manufactured by Gaslock. More info can be found here: http://www.indy-cator.de/engl/

display of what gear you're in for a car, useless, but would be useful on a bike.

Agree--just something I hadn't seen before. If it was in the dash like DCT it wouldn't be totally useless. There are times I forget whether I'm in 3rd or 5th and have to feel.

u hit the spot. it's all about feeling. sometimes u dont have to feel it with ur hand, but u feel how much the car is vibration, ur gas pedal, clutch pedal, u hear the engine, who needs a display... it's ridiculous... maybe it's good for DCT since they have too many gears to keep flapping thru lol
