Default Sparco Distributors

hello all... i am in the market for a steering wheel. i have decided on the sparco 368. i am looking for a good vendor, with that said...has anyone here done business with sparcoracingusa.com? i ask because there is sparcousa.com and they list saferacer.com as a distributor but safe racer has the same physical address as sparcousaracing.com but they (sparco racing usa) are not on the distributor list for sparcousa.

if you know of a business that sells sparco producs that you have done business with, that you like and recommend that would be a good help too

thank you in advanced!

Post up if you find a good source, I'm in the market for the same wheel (it's the only 15" suede wrapped wheel I can find).

They also have the same business phone #. And they both have the same registrar. They use the same host, however, they have different IPs on their webservers and are on different clusters.

TL;DR: Just call them and ask since they have the same business phone number. It's extremely probable they are the same business, but the rackspace bit strikes me as awfully odd - why would a company pay for a different server like that?

that's right...seems suspicious and also, the business named after the main company, sparco usa, that being sparco racing usa, is not listed as a distributor.
