    No, the truly sad part is that people would spend ~$200 on it

    I can't say that I blame AM for selling such a stupid product though. I'd sell them also if people are willing to spend that kind of money. There's probably a very nice profit margin on that raxiom garbage and the postage expenses to ship them would also be next to nothing.

    The shift knob itself is ugly as sin too.... Someone should make one the size of a Pool Ball/Mach1 Shift Knob. Then price em at half the price of AM's junk and make bank. LoL

    I could see the Civic guys buying these, re-tapping for correct thread pitch, and putting them on. Eww............

    Saw one of these at a car meet a couple weeks ago. Worst part was some kids were blown away by how "awesome" it was... Face palm.

    I want one that screams the gear I enter out loud. Having to look down to see the gear seems too dangerous for me. "FIIIIIIIRST!!!" "THHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRD!" And then you could get in on the celebrity version. You know, like a Samuel L Jackson version. "FIRST MOTHERF*CKER!" "SAY THIRD AGAIN, I DARE YOU!" Or, maybe some would perhaps perfer the Ryan Gosling verison? "Hey Baby, I see you are in First. That's Hot." "You entered third like I'm about to enter you."

    But it says "futuristic". It's so future, you don't even know bruh...

    I remember when these came out and my buddy said he thought they were cool. I just started at him. Couldn't even say anything.
