is the sound of the incredibly engineered shifter of the Honda
S2000, the jewel on top of its 9000 RPM engine.
Team Voodoo shift knob shortens the height from the
stock shift knob by approximately 1 inch. This, in turn, shortens
the required shifting distance, which increases shifting speed.
This small change makes a huge difference in helping to keep
you on the VTEC cam while carving away at your favorite twisties!
Although the S2000 gearbox and its extremely short-throw shifter
has been rated one of the best in the high-performance car
world, the addition of a Team Voodoo countersunk shift knob
can make each throw even shorter and quicker.
Team Voodoo short-throw counter-sunk knob was developed
by Bob Krueger in collaboration with S2000 owner Chris D'Elena
just a few months after the first S2000s landed on American
shores in 2000 (Bob had developed the famed Miata Voodoo shift
knob and has been providing attractive and functional aftermarket
shift knobs for over 10 years).
Team Voodoo Knobs are CNC machined
from either corrosion-resistant 6061-T6 aluminum or elemental
grade 2 titanium round billet stock. Billet knobs have been
the shifters of choice for racing applications for generations.
Sports and prototype cars from the '50s and '60s, from Ferraris
to Aston Martins, raced with them. Indy cars raced with them.
And Formula 1 cars raced with them too. To this day, every
production Ferrari, one of the most elegant and exotic cars
on the planet, comes with a spherical billet shift knob.
Team Voodoo Shift Knobs are available in aluminum
and titanium. Aluminum knobs come in three finishes: polished,
spun, and pearl (a clear, high gloss powder coated finish).
The pearl is top and spun bottom in the photo. The pearl finish
subdues the traditional standing waves of the spun knob's
reflective pattern and looks less "pointy" than
the spun knob. Pearl Aluminum shift knobs look great with
the Model Year 2004 interior redesign of the S2000. Titanium
knobs are available in a spun finish only, and is the second
from the bottom in the picture. If you want a more subdued
or satin finish, this can be easily accomplished by burnishing
the knob with 4xxxx steel wool (the kind used in furniture
