new steering hub for impact bumper 911s...

Well, I just opened the box of the first batch of our late 911 steering hubs about an hour ago, and thought you guys might like to see an alternative to the rubber-accordian look we're so used to at this point:

(this is the prototype on my 930 with our 911ST wheel and 911R horn button)





Here is the hub by itself:




you re-use your existing turn signal cancel ring, installs just like you'd expect.

as with our other hubs, these are drilled for both the popular momo-pattern as well as the inverted 5 bolt pattern of the historic 911R wheel.

we originally designed this hub so that backdaters could use our (or other vintage) steering wheels on the 74-89 911s and have a hub that LOOKS like the early hubs in terms of shape & design.

after running it on the 930, its become apparent that it is perfectly at home in the impact bumper cars as they are!

I'm pretty excited about this one, what do you guys think?

This is exactly what I've been waiting for. I'm going to buy an ST steering wheel with this hub set up next paycheck!

Good job guys!

Are they really that expensive? Body organ prices? Next Paycheck prices?

Looks like about $550 (Hub=$150+Button=$115+ST Wheel=$390) plus shipping. I guess it depends on what your paycheck looks like whether you'll need to throw in a kidney...

Personally speaking, that's about double my impulse “Gee, aint it cool! I gots to have one now!” budget.

…Your personal finance model may very.

And FYI, I think the steering wheel is $270 not $390.

that's correct - 911st wheel is a friendly 270.

Pardon the typo on the ST wheel; the total of $550 plus shipping is correct, no? I'm undecided between the 360mm ST and the 370mm R (which IS $390, and bumps the upgrade to a delivered $700). Beautiful...

Will the 380mm RS style wheel ($475) work on the impact hub? My 350mm Prototipo increases the steering effort more than I would like...

I'd like to see an even bigger Prototipo, but that's just me wanting to outfit my street car with something in the 370mm range. The Zuffenhaus 360mm will work. I wish Momo would make something beyond 350mm.

All that aside, well done Zuffenhaus. You've made me a soon to be customer (as soon as I can scrape the cash together!).

How much is the hub itself? Is a very nice looking alternative to the accordion hub, I hate mine.

Oops... see the price, $150.00

I hear you on the 350mm Prototipo being a little small. That's why we kicked our ST wheel up to 360mm.

So far (2 weeks daily commute) the ST wheel has been just fine on my 930, in terms of effort. Plus, I can see the tach in it's entirety with it.

Keith,
Could show pics of the step by step process of installing the backdate RS Steering wheel? Emphasis on attachment rings, button spring and horn contact pin.

Aluminum Solid Hub

I was looking for a solid hub for my Carrera, as the accordian type offered is an Eye-Sore.

I found one which is solid Aluminum and just a drop in, with no modifications...and the best part, it was under $60 bux!

Looks great. What is the length (depth) of the hub? When will your back date RS be available? Thanks

Hey Chris, thanks for the reminder!

Heres what a backdated wheel looks like assembled:





and here are the 3 primary components of the backdate hub assembly that wed be offering:



Youd need to provide the donor wheel and drill out the rivets, then bolt everything back together on our hub assembly. Youd also need to solder a ground wire to the factory horn retention ring, and one to the base of the factory horn contact. The turn signal cancel ring from a G series wheel will bolt in place on our hub.
