    I was given this link awhile back, but thought they were a bit on the expensive side. http://www.racerpartswholesale.com/product/4955/Longacre_Steering_Wheels_And_Hubs

    Since i am not going to do the rubberized grips on mine due to longevity problems, would this be something that may be of interest? If it is, i could order a set and see how they fit and or see how much trouble it would be to make the formula wheels so they would fit.

    Thanks for any input!

    Not really man-they look a bit awkward.

    Too bad we can't do an imprint and make a grip from there (as the BMW Sauber racers did).

    By the way, are we still on for the expected completion date Charlie?

    Those things look butt ugly. I wouldn't want one on my wheel.

    I believe should be pretty close to it Tom. Still having some growing pains and along with that changed to an 8 week lead time. And then just going thru the wheels as quick as i can. but i am getting back to being closer to actual est times.

    Ok, thanks for the responses also folks. Pretty much answers that question :)
