I hope the Fed Elise steering wheel is the same as that at the LA Autoshow. That steering wheel diameter was smaller than my aftermarket Momo NSX-R steering wheel for my S2000 and felt/looked great in the Elise.
I don't see any reasons why it wouldn't be the same as that found on the LA car and agree that it felt pretty good. Just curious because after sitting in a Euro car today, it seemed smaller and perhaps a little more tidy.
Wheel is the type on the LA show cars, 12" is probably about right but to be honest I never measured. This isn't a school bus so you don't need a huge honking wheel. Couldn't go much larger because of space limitations anyway
I is a special made MOMO steering wheel, measured just over 12 and a quarter inches by my wife. It looks really cool, no puffy airbag look, nice emblem, very rigid cool grips at various driving positions.
To tell you the truth, it really looks small! I can't wait to see how it drives with this gokart steering wheel!
Okay, so 300 mm is 11.81 inches, and 320 mm is 12.59 inches, so we're talking about a difference in rim diameter of 0.79 inches or a tad over 3/4". Personally I can live with that and really like the new wheel (as Randy might very well say, MOMO ROCKS !)
Thanks Arno ! I love the metric system but unfortunately I still don't use it frequently enough, so I have to "translate" it.
