Check RPM Outlet on the web, they have an adapter that allows you to use a standard shift ball or knob.

I'm changing mine soon... The top of the shaft is straight and smooth. So I'm threading the shaft and putting a Hurst T - Handle on it.

The top of the shift handle has two flats milled into it, you won't get very good threads. There will also be a grove near the bottom of the shaft that you will see, doesn't look that great IMO.

If you are talking about a 6 speed you can get the Hurst shaft and ball on E Bay for about $100, real easy to install.

I plan on putting a leather boot on it as while, which would cover that notch. Someone on here, I cant remember who, threaded theirs and said it worked well. They did it for a handle out of an '06 Daytona. I'm going to put a nut under the handle and tight it up towards the handle.. Keeping it snug

I did that on my 09 SE, though a bit undersized since not banging gears, NEVER had a problem and removed the boot when I traded it in, so have a spare now it did/does look sweet and 3/8-16 thread size means about any knob out there will work, or you could buy the adaptor but this works just a FYI. :D

So when I thread it, that's the size it will end up being ? (3/8-16) Good deal. Here's the set up I bough this weekend. Hurst 1530020 Universal Brushed Aluminum T-Handle : Amazon.com : Automotive

I figured one of those adapters has to work lol.

Spare boot you say?

Interested at all in parting with that spare boot of yours, Sick?:thinkerg:

Hard to remember but THINK I may have removed/cut off some of the very top of the stick before threaded, if it has/had a flat spot on top? After that just used a Die to make threads, and the shaft does thin/tapper towards bottom so you end up with a good inch or so of threads, enough to use the knob/lock nut with a bit of locktite.

If you're talking automatics, you can use that Hurst knob without any modifications to the stock shifter. I can tell you how. But I know Sick'R has a 6-speed manual, so which are we talking?

I have the auto. I tried to see what Size thread to use, and all the adapters were too big. So I bought an adapter tonight that allows you to just slide the adapter on and tighten set screws.

What adapter? I found a couple online but they were like $12 plus $6 shipping or something like that.
I got one on eBay for $26+ free shipping. Go there and type in "challenger non-threaded shifter adapter". I seen a couple others online, but this one was a good combo of decent price and decent design.
