The Who do Voodoo
in the days before the internet was a household word, when computer
geeks got their on-line fixes from outfits like Compuserve, The Source,
and GENIE, and AOL had more modems than customers, Voodoo Bob Krueger
- Miata owner, SoCalM member, and San Diego resident - started the
Miataville forumn on Compuserve. The forumn quickly became the most
intelligent and respected source for Miata information in Cyberspace.
The Miata.net came much later - in the beginning there was Voodoo
Bob and Miataville.
It didn't take long for Bob to start tinkering with his Miata, and one of the things he decided to do right away was create the perfect shift knob inspired by exotic Italian sports cars of previous era. Thus the Voodoo Knob was born and instantly became a cult favorite among Miataville members. Bob tells it like this...
"Originally, my intent was to simply make a shift knob for myself that met my needs... a spherical shape, custom fit to the Miata, and a weight at least somewhat in line with that of the OEM knob. The weight is important because the shift knob being too light causes a lot of gearbox vibration to be passed to the hand, and most people find that objectionable. So I designed the Voodoo Knob to be a 1-7/8 inch sphere of alloy, which gives it a weight of approximately 145 grams. This weight compares favorably with the OEM knob's 190 grams and, consequently, little vibration reaches the hand."
Eventually, a slightly larger "Magnum" sized knob was introduced with a 2" sphere. (Note: All Voodoo Knobs are now made with a 2" diameter sphere.)
