After adding the carbon fiber seat and the 4-speed Downshift handle to the Autoblog executive washroom, we thought our tricked-out toilet had the porcelain ponies to handle any load. But, as everyone (with any knowledge of automotive workings) knows, slapping faux fiber on the seats and a adding chrome shift knob do nothing to increase performance.
As super car nuts, there shouldn't be any part of our lives left untouched by the machines we love most. We're guessing that's why the Down Shift toilet handle was invented. It's made (in America, btw) of lightweight aluminum and comes with all necessary hardware to turn your stock toilet into a 4-speed, manually-shifted lead-sled lavatory. OK, so it doesn't really give you four speeds, but there is a 4-speed shift pattern on top.
