Hi All,

We now have the Works Bell Special Edition Toshiki Yoshioka ToshiKing Gear Knobs / Shift Knobs available as shown below ...

http://www.tunersgroup.com/images/large/large254.jpg

This is the exact same model of shift knob as used by Toshiki Yoshioka on his Toyota AE86 D1GP car.

These shift knobs are 100% made in Japan.

They are manufactured from high quality Black Polyacetal and available for Nissan and Toyota fitments (and may also fit other vehicles depending on the size and thread of your gear lever - see below for gear lever thread sizes).

It features the exclusive Yoshioka ToshiKing logo at the base of the gear knob ...

These gear knobs are part of Works Bell's collaboration project where new products are developed in direct collaboration with and with design input from leading Japanese drift teams and drivers like Team Orange and Toshiki Yoshioka.

This is Yoshioka's AE86 ...

MACHINED ALLOY INSERTS - NOT CHEAP PLASTIC SLEEVES

http://www.tunersgroup.com/images/large/large515.jpg

Instead of cheap plastic sleeves like many gear knob manufacturers use, each Works Bell Yoshioka ToshiKing gearknob includes 3 machined alloy sleeves (shown above) that thread into the body of the gear knob to allow you to fit the gearknob to your car's shift lever.

Alloy sleeves for the following gear lever thread patterns are included ...

* M12 (12mm metric) x 1.25 pitch
* M10 (10mm metric) x 1.25 pitch
* M12 (12mm metric) x 1.5 pitch

I have one of these gear knobs myself, and it's a great fit in your hand. It is slightly smaller than some other gear knobs on the market, so if you have small hands and find larger gear knobs uncomfortable to use, it is excellent.

My hands are largish, but this gear knob is still very comfortable in my hands - it's one of those sizes that is equally well suited to small or large hands. It's very lightweight too for the lightweight freaks :)


HOW CAN I GET ONE ?
