Its not a 2.5 but you get the idea of how far it is to the signal.

jimy hub is a NRG short hub.

all hubs work the same it just that a momo or a regular autozone hub will stick out further then the NRG slim. which means your hands are further more from the turn signals and wiper

i have the 2.5

without the short hub the steering wheel is going to be noticeably closer and turn signals farther.

Sorry, I should of clarified. I was trying to show you how much its going to suck that the steering wheel will be so close to you. But if you have long fingers, you shouldn't have to worry.

I like the tekniq quick release unit better. I had one on my integra and it looked clean and didn't reach out far.

I've always wondered what the quick release hubs were for. I know that on actual race cars, due to a lack of seat sliders, the ideal close-up seating position requires you to take the steering wheel off to get out of the car.

But we have seat sliders. So what gives? Is it anti-theft? I'm pretty sure a thief would just purchase his own NRG steering wheel...

It is a little more complicated than that. They would need the steering wheel with part of the release(the part that bolts to the wheel) that fits on. There are many different hub quick releases out there and most are unique to that brand so they cant mix and match. Also if you are worried about that they have a locking cover so you cant remove it without breaking the hub off.

plus nobody is going to be carrying a steering wheel around ready to steal a car.

You obviously have never been to Fayetteville NC... My friend's 81 Firebird was stolen and it's steering wheel was in the trunk(those cars dont have internal trunk releases). We were in his house, heard it start up, walked outside and it was just pulling out.... Never found the car after that.
