    Well a lot of drifters love the drift knobs and they are pretty simple to install.

    For this short write-up we'll be using a Kazama spin/turn knob.

    Tools:
    * flat head screwdriver (thanks Spring)

    First, you'll need to remove your handbrake boot. Start by pulling up from the bottom of it and it will come off fairly easy.

    Second, take your screwdriver and place it in between the two tabs that hold the spring in place and bend them outwards so that they are no longer supporting the spring.

    After you move the tabs, the spring should be loose and move around easily. You can remove it or leave it. (I left it in.)

    Then, put your handbrake boot back on.

    Place the drift knob over the existing stock button and make sure to press firmly.

    Using your new drift button: The handbrake will now come up without having to push you knob in, and if you would like to keep your handbrake up, simply push the knob forward after you have positioned the handbrake.

    *Mistaken Edit*
    If you accidentally put the drift knob on before the boot, you can place the boot on and use a heat gun to stretch it over the knob instead of trying to remove the drift knob and then put the boot back on. (thanks JSquared)
