No, I looked at it and it wasn't heavy enough. I have the NRG carbon fiber heavyweight.

I seem to have a problem with first gear when shifting. It wants to stick for some reason. I have to give it a little gas before it will shift into 1st. Not sure if that's a problem or normal? I might grab the buddy club short throw and this NGR carbon fiber knob. Thanks Art, as usual!

It's normal. Sometimes I just have to throw it into 2nd. It's been discussed before. I think it's something to do with autostop and syncros.

Okay, good. It scared me the first time because I thought that I was in first all the way and then I heard it grind . It scurd me! Does the short throw fix this issue?

Agreed. I have the issue to and it's predominantly when autostop kicks in.

It didn't fix it for me when I had it. Just drop it into second and then go to first usually fixed it though when it happened.

I did notice it more when I was coming to a red light and throw it into neutral for auto stop to kick in. Makes sense.

Thanks a lot for posting this guide ITEM9. I would be lost without it.

Is there anyway to get an idea of the shipping weight on the Rakuten website? I was looking at these wheels, but it looks like the shipping from Tenso can add up quickly. Further, according to the Tenso site, there appears to be a 30kg weight limitation for items shipping to the states.
