The last one of NRG Innovations flat bottom steering wheel to end this review.
Pros and Cons
Now this one is another one of the Carbon line and as you would have guessed, it’s pretty well known for its durability. Like most NRG Innovations flat bottom steering wheels, it does come it its universal adapter. You can adjust it to give you more legroom and also it is the only advertised wheel from NRG that has all hardware included for assembling.
The only con that we have as you would have guessed by now, is that the material it contains all around and even inside may cause you some sort of toxicity if you use the steering for long hours without protection which I’m pretty sure can be bypassed with some fiddling around.
