WC Lathe Werks Burnt Blue Titanium RS Shiftknob Review

So last week I put in an order for my WC Lathe Werks custom RS shift knob and less than a week later, its here. Not only did it come in super quick, but Chris kept me updated on an almost daily basis, which to me is a big deal. Right out of the box, the quality is amazing. Nice weight, super solid. The laser engraving is very clean and subtle. After driving around with it installed, I'm hooked. The shifts are much smoother but you still get a healthy clunk when you lock into gear. Overall I'm impressed. Chris makes a quality custom product and delivers in a very reasonable amount time. Two thumbs up and very highly recommended!

Looks really nice. Is that just the straightforward blue, or is Burnt Blue a specific colour, because I don't see that as an option and the blue on the site looks a bit darker (could just be the lighting in your picture).

My interactions with Chris when i ordered mine were excellent....it really is a very interactive process and he's an all round good guy ;) I could post a pic of mine but it's a out and out clone of StevenP's...getting it from the U.S. and getting done for 'the Australia tax' I wanted to take NO chances ;) Helluva smart solid knob with great feel and weight.

Looks great, the blue finish is cool! I sent him the knob from my speed3 to have new threads put in to fit the RS. I debated on having an RS added as well, but too late now as it's due back any day. Looking forward to the weighted feel, used to love it in the speed.

I just ended up ordering this, but with the 4 narrow grooves on the bottom. I was thinking of going with the Elite VP knob at first, but this one in all blue looks so nice!

I was looking at these knobs in the beginning but couldn't justify the price for the elite one. That blue is really nice looking though.

What is the one on the left/top? Is it all Titanium? And what type is this? Is it the titanium sphere?

Looks pretty awesome. I think I would prefer the shift pattern in a white or silver though. How much did that bad boy cost?

Has anyone tried one of the "Piston" style shift knobs as yet? I'm interested in feedback on how those perform.
