2004 Mazdaspeed shift knob removal....can't get it off!

On my 2003, it was a simple firm twist, remove, replace. On the 04 Mazdaspeed I can't get it to turn for the life of me. Feels like I'm seriously going to break something by twisting so hard. Is there something differs on this model? Or if not, is there any real way to do damage by twisting the $&#** out of it to get it to budge? Yikes....

should just twist off, maybe PO lock-tite it? Only choice is the risk it and use more force.
definitely not a stock knob, hopefully you didn't damage the threads. No biggie if you did, can re-thread easily, and the tool is cheap.
