I actually got it from what was orignally an S2000 site called www.Moddiction.com I got the anvil shift knob, and it's by far probably one of the heaviest shift knobs i've ever seen. It's great.

Yeah. XD
I actually throw on my stock steelies in the winter, probably not needed here in Georgia but it keeps the miles down on them.
I just replaced those Z1 star specs for the ZII star specs, they had been on the car since 2012 and gone through a couple of mountain runs, autocross, and of course the usual spirited driving.

Nice. I went with DZ102's for summer street tires this year and Z2*'s for track/autoX.

I plugged in both 2009 and 2014 for the Yaris for that product on the Moddiction site. I got a 'doesn't fit message' each time. Is there a small mod you had to do to get the Anvil to fit on your Yaris?

Very nice! Even with those sticky tires, do you have traction issues with that Blitz SC?

This. ^
I got my shift knob way back before they had the option to plug in your car and I just bought the size I needed.
I also forgot to mention that the shift knob is sitting on the microimage 2 inch shifter extension.

I was having a little bit of issues, but I think that was because the tires were worn out. Now that i've got a new set on it's fine.
It's actually in the process of getting a turbo put on right now.
