Don't do it!

If you have to have one, at least get a real quick release.

I know they are more $$ but the NRG ones are shit. The last one I touched, the locking / indent balls fell out (and it was nearly new on a friends car!)

I've never had any problems with the 3 that I have?
Also last year at Belle Isle I saw a Lotus racecar with the same one I had.
So call me out if I'm wrong but if it was good enough for a pro race team he should be fine

I just know that when I pulled the wheel off a friends car with a NRG quick release, and a couple little ball bearings fell out and it wouldn't safely lock on - I will never own one. Just like one of their steering wheels (flimsy.)

But maybe it was a bad one from the get go, I don't know - but I tend to try to not get the "cheap" brand when it comes to steering, brakes, safety, etc.

Thanks for the heads up Marmot I'll keep an eye out for that but even my eBay NRG knockoff is still solid
