When we talk about replacing your shift knob we are generally talking about a vehicle with a Manual Transmission. Vehicles with Automatic Transmissions in some cases can be replaced. Keep in mind most manual shift knobs will not work with an Automatic Transmission as a lot of them have a shift lock button on them. Also a lot of Automatic Transmissions with shifter paddles can be replaced with larger, more racing style paddles. 

Weighted
The weighted shift knob allows for smoother and faster shifting. A great upgrade for street use assisting the driver in stop and go city traffic.

Derlin
Delrin material is impervious to heat and cold. Making it an excellent choice for racing applications and for daily driving in hot and cold climates. It is also not slippery and will not rattle like some metal knobs do. It also gives the driver the best connect feeling to the drivetrain.
