Default Weaksauce steering wheel combos

COMBO PACKAGES :: weksos industries

has some good combo deals. Free shipping. I want to get ↓

NRG-LEATHERREDSTITCH - SHORT HUB - QUICK RELEASE :: NRG :: STEERING / QUICK RELEASE :: COMBO PACKAGES :: weksos industries

but there is no option for Miata there ^^. Only their MOMO combos have a Miata option. All of their other combos have options for other Mazdas like rx7's or Protege.

Question is will the Protege or rx7 hub and steering wheel fit on a Miata so I can get the steering wheel/quick disconnect combo I want? The steering wheel has a Miata pattern on it. It should fit right?

I'm planning to call them Friday to find out but maybe you guys could help me out before then. Thanks.

The RX-7,RX-8, Protege, and Miata all share the same NRG short hub model number SRK-160H.

$50 vs $250. I can get my radiator with the money I save. But I might need a quick release when my new seat goes in. Guess I'll see how it is when the seat goes in.

So the quick release and steering wheel would line up to?

I really want a quick release just for the safety factor when I move to Orlando. 250 is a pretty good deal for a quality quick release but, the ebay hub/wheel combo is **** and works just fine.

Any one use/try an ebay quick release? Seems pretty sketchy.

The quick releases and steering wheels are drilled in a generic pattern making them pretty universal. The NRG wheel pattern falls in line with momo and sparco pattern.

The RX7 and Miata hub are the same.

And I used to have a cheap ebay wheel, and it was amazing how easily you could twist it in your hand. So much happier with my real Momo.

Yes quite scary actually, if you like the feeling of your steering wheel having lots of play wiggling back and forth while driving I highly recommend the ebay quick release. lol

Tried that too and you couldn't be more right, piece of junk.

Knock off! I think it's the Momo Protipo or something. It's a deep dish and I'm using a solid hub. But that's a real MOMO horn button!

LOL, I though about doing the same, till I saw the buttons go for ~$25

I have to find a remedy though. The steering wheel I bought say "Drift" in the middle; Im not that much of a ricer.

I just got a universal weld-in QR hub. Still cost me $104 dollars but is good quality. Even came with the Sparco/Momo hub pattern. No play AT ALL for a splined setup...
