MOMO Steering Wheel with Quick Release Hub
Erick (evof575gtc on NSXPrime.com) installed my MOMO Team 300mm Steering wheel with his NRG short hub and NRG v2.5 quick release setup. It is important to mention that, unlike other quick release hubs, this particular setup retains the use of the horn and the Cruise control functions.
It only took him 40 minutes to complete the installation. We video taped it... I will post the video as soon as I edit out all the boring stuff.
Here's the completed installation.
He only had the Black Chrome Quick Release with the silver screws for the column mount in stock. He will change it out for the black screws and the black quick release as soon as he gets it in stock so everything will match. I'll cover the Cruise Control wiring with some black sleeving. Also, notice that the distance between the steering ring and the turn signal lever is within 2-3 millimeters of the OEM setup. I can't tell a difference while driving... it's perfect.
The Quick Release feature works flawless. Press a button, slide back the collar, and the steering ring assembly slides right off. To put it back on, just slide the steering ring assembly back onto the column and rotate the assembly until it snaps into place. You can not put it on wrong -- it only snaps into place at the correct position. The NRG parts are very high quality and the result is a tight, firm feel. I highly recommend this NRG setup to anyone considering a quick release hub.
After the installation, the drive home was fantastic. I love the 300mm ring. The steering responsiveness is absolutely incredible. The MOMO Team comes in 280mm and 300mm sizes. I thought that the 280mm was way too small, but I think the 300mm is perfect. You might think that the smaller ring size would obscure the gauge cluster, but after installation, I just adjusted the tilt on the steering column so I could see all the gauges.
Here's a comparison of the OEM and MOMO Team 300mm rings. You might think it looks too small, but go back up and look at the photo of the ring installed. It looks perfect to me. It's lighter and it has a lower Moment of Inertia (MOI). I have a 2002 with power steering, so I don't have to worry about the slow speed effort it takes to crack the steering wheel... keep that in mind.
