This is the steering wheel used on the JUN Evo X ...

The Works Bell Team Orange Steering Wheel is a mindblowing wheel - one of the finest steering wheels in the world. They are made in Italy to Works Bell's design.

They are available in a leather version and a suede / buckskin version.

I have one on my own car and at least one other JDM Style Forum member has one on his car too ... see this post for photos ... http://forum.jdmstyletuning.com/showpost.php?p=348278&postcount=10

Here is a photo from that post ...

And a freaking awesome wheel too, if I might say so myself.

I absolutely love it. :)

Can the Quick release kits be used on most cars?

Hi Knight Rider,

The Works Bell Quick Release kits can be bolted into virtually any car. As they are a racing product, they are designed for aftermarket steering wheels, not for factory steering wheels.

You can see the mounting holes in the part on the right in the photo above - that part attaches to the steering boss / hub. The part on the left attaches to the back of the steering wheel.

As it says on our site at http://www.tunersgroup.com/Online_Store/Works_Bell_Rapfix_II_Steering_Wheel_Quick_Release. html ...


Steering Wheel & Hub / Boss Kit Compatibility

There is no welding required to fit a Works Bell Rapfix II Quick Release to your car - it is strictly a bolt on product with no welding required.

At the steering wheel end, the Rapfix II ships pre-machined with bolt holes in both standard 6 bolt Momo bolt pattern steering (PCD 70mm), and 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern (PCD 74mm).

Of course it is compatible with all Works Bell steering wheels, including the Works Bell Original Steering Wheel, the Works Bell Team Orange Steering Wheel, and the Works Bell Yoshioka Steering Wheel.

http://www.tunersgroup.com/images/gallery/gallery286.jpeg

The top image above shows a Works Bell Rapfix II (with optional Works Bell Rapfix II Flipper) attached to a Nardi steering wheel and Works Bell Boss / Hub.

The part of the Rapfix II that attaches to the steering boss / hub has a 6 bolt (PCD 70mm) bolt pattern, the same bolt pattern as used on Momo steering bosses / hubs.

http://www.tunersgroup.com/images/large/large301.jpg

The part that attaches to the steering boss / hub can also be attached to many compatible 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern steering bosses / hubs (PCD 74mm), by using the Works Bell Conversion Spacer (see photo above). The conversion spacer is a very useful product which allows you to fit compatible Momo bolt pattern products to Nardi bolt pattern products and vice versa.

Hi Knight Rider,

The Works Bell Quick Release kits can be bolted into virtually any car. As they are a racing product, they are designed for aftermarket steering wheels, not for factory steering wheels.

One of the great advantages of running a Rapfix II Quick Release is that Works Bell also makes a product called the Works Bell Rapfix Key Lock System for the Rapfix II Quick Releases ...

http://www.tunersgroup.com/images/large/large293.jpg

http://www.tunersgroup.com/images/large/large294.jpg

It locks to the steering column / boss when your car is unattended. Pretty hard for a thief to drive a car away with no steering wheel :) More info on it is here ...

Hi All,

Works Bell has announced this week that once their current stock of various Works Bell Team Orange and Toshiki Yoshioka ToshiKing collaboration products is sold, these collaboration products will no longer be available.

Items that will no longer be available include:

- Works Bell Rapfix II Quick Release - Team Orange Collaboration Version
- Works Bell Rapfix II Quick Release - Toshiki Yoshioka Toshiking Collaboration Version
- Works Bell Special Edition Toshiki Yoshioka Toshiking Steering Wheel

Stock is extremely limited on some of these items, so if you want one before the final stock is sold, you need to be very quick.

Orders will be processed strictly in the order that payment is received.

See this thread for more info on the items that will no longer be available ...
