Steering wheel adapter hub - Long or short?

Hey,

I'm planning to replace my old steering wheel for a new Momo Prototipo on my 3.2.
Apparently there are two adapter hub versions (short and long).

Which one do you guys use/prefer?

Regards

Long. Short gets you too close to the top of the dash, IMO.

I went long and I have an offset adaptor too. This helps with speedometer view. I have long legs and donít like my arms reaching.

I am looking for the part number for the short adapter, but canít seem to find it.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

A long adapter is usually the way to go, most prefer some extra room between the edge of the dash and the steering wheel.
Keep in mind that if you want to add a quick release, that also adds some extra distance.
A dished steering wheel also adds extra distance compared to a flat wheel/minimal dish .
A Prototipo has only 37mm dish, not a flat wheel, but flatter than a model 7.
Things to keep in mind when choosing a hub adapter.


I have the standard momo hub (mc231) + quick release (Snap-Off) + 10mm spacer (needed to make the hornbutton work with the QR)
For me this is perfect, it brings the wheel a bit closer but not in your face close.

I'll try and find a picture of my set up.

My wheel has 85mm of dish, so it feels a bit close, which is why I might be interested in the short adapter. (I have the L231 now)

Anyone know the length and PN# of the short version?

Thanks

Okay, finally tracked down the short version (PN# C231) and placed an order. I'll update when it arrives.

Mine has the stock "long" extended factory wheel. I'm 6' and it's perfect. My buddy's SC has the short wheel and my fingers would always rub the top of the dash.
