    Default Steering hub adapter issues

    I've recently seen two failures of the collapsible hub steering wheel adapters. Both sheared the 'spokes' off the hub. One incident happened at WSIR. Fortunately at the exit of T2 so lots of runoff room.

    The part I am talking about looks like this:

    If you run this type of adapter you might want to take a look at it once in a while. If you are looking for an alternative I really like the NRG short hub.

    Were the ones that sheared off actual momo products or cheap knock offs? The momo street hubs are engineered to collapse, but I have never heard of one of their's actually shearing off.

    I know you say "momo style" but perhaps "collapsible hub" would be a better description if its not necessarily one of their products. In my experience their safety and race equipment is top notch.

    No way to tell if they were the real deal or not.

    I am going to echo Mr. T. Used quite a few genuine MOMO hubs and never had one break. The original ones usually have the MOMO part number stamped into the hub somewhere.

    Agree. Not saying these were Momo brand - just describing the style of the adapter.

    Ditto the NRG short hub and the 2.5 QR is a nice combo...

    I think a lot of the fake hubs are one piece cast aluminum..

    Not really sure if there's fake version of momo with collapsing spokes.
