i have no clue i tried twisting but i dont want to brake anything, is it clued or what??

Vice grips and alot of elbow grease. They are glued on. It takes alot of force. I'm guessing you want to put on an aftermarket shift knob? Cuz your stock one may be messed up by the time you get it off.

yeah, you may need to clean off some left over glue though. Not all shift knobs are the same.

Wrap a rag around the shift knob, then put the vice grips on it. That will save your knob.

make sure you get the shift knob that has 10mm thread.

After I got my SR swap done, they left me with a shift knob that looked like my old one, but was kinda nicked up and scratched to hell....turns out it WAS my old knob, after being taken off!

No, not all aftermarket shift knobs just twist on. In fact, most of the ones that I've seen (Momo, Razo) don't twist on at all.

They use a collar that covers your stick's threads and 3 set screws to hold the knob on your stick.

I have the NISMO shift knob, it is screwed on, but make sure you get the 10mm thread one, not the 12mm thread.

I'm wondering what good aftermarket knobs there are that have some weight to them. The only one I've seen that I really liked was very light compared to my stock one...

Here's the link to the Momo knob I like: http://www.momo.it/Momo/pomelli/grandi/raptor/raptorcolor.jpg

But it felt like it weighed less than a pound where as my stock one felt like 2-4 lbs...
