alittle bit of plastic needs to be trimmed off the centre airbag console to get it a good fit. But other than that its a sure fit.

well you need to trim a bit of the plastic cover on the air bag, this is not actually messing with the air bag itself, or any of its workings, just the plastic trim

you also need to mod the horn wiring very very very slightly

Are you sure you really want the other steering wheel.
Bear in mind a **** loada money goes into a developing a car. One of the subjects will be the turning ratios . I have no idea what the size difference is so might not be an issue or weather itd have an effect at all , just might be worth thinkin bout is all :)

eh? no, greater distance your hands have to turn a larger steering wheel as for how many rotations lock to lock that wont change, just less distance to travel to do it. :chair:

The TF wheel makes the steering on the ZR seem 200% better, i have done this and the feel of the car is greatly improved

Proper harness + hans device is much much much better than an airbag, hitting an airbag is not like hitting a fluffy pillow, that bad boy explodes into your face, more often than not causing "whiplash".

Neck/Body deceleration is the key.

A HANS and harness isn't exactly practical in a road car, besides where do you put the anchor points on the road? onto the mounting points fixed to the side of your skull?

And I won't hear a bad word about airbags, they've saved my life at least twice already
