Thin one places the wheel closer to stock position.

The thin one uses a pin and gear mechanism. The others use a ball and lock mechanism.

Danki hub's are direct PNP with the air bag light, IMO much easier and if i were to do it again would have gone this route.


But im currently rocking a momo hub w/ nrg 1.5 quick release and nardi wheel i love it!

do you have pictures of this setup? I'd like to see wheel location.

Do you find that it is secure enough? I'd hate to have any slop in the wheel.

Its slightly closer than stock location, which i like

NRG's quick releases are ball baring which is why i went with it, they advertise how the don't get "loose" which would "have any slop" as you said. My quick release was bought used and it feels as if i got it to be brand new. I am very pleased with it.

Edit:
The only down sides i can really think of is that the locks don't come with it :( As well as when the quick release is on, the turn signal and headlight handles are further away which took a little getting used too since i usually kept my hands on the wheel while turning on my lights or using my turn signal.

Is the NRG short hub included in this GB by any chance? If so, do you know how much shorter it is than the momo hub offhand? I will measure tonight when I get home to see if its worth it, but I can order today if I know there is a substantial difference. Thanks!

I'll throw in my review as well, sorry no pics, but i have a Sparco hub, NRG quick release, NRG D-ring.
I love it, it is awesome, sp cool you should buy one. The release works flawlessly and is not very hard to work.
As far as wheel position, it is closer to me and i really like that especially while auto-xing
i can still reach the controls with my finger tips but it did take getting some used-to-ness.
Great product, recommend to anyone.
