Thank you for this suggestion - we're always open to discussion and will gladly implement some adjustments if that's what you guys are after

Now we need to test drive it to make sure it works perfectly and upgrades driving experience just as much as we expect


Take care

That's our bottomline - keeping airbag and all controls 100% functional

Well, actually yes, it is for sale. But first I would like to see it in its original application - I am now looking for a C6 owner who will allow me o mess with his ride a bit . Then, this prototype will be up for sale right away

Can the car be programmed to provide a 9% or more increase in power steering assistance to compensate for the smaller wheel?

Small steering wheels are GOOD, especially if you need to drive wearing HANDCUFFS!

Only way to change the effort is with the pump or somehow changing the rack.

I personally like more effort in my steering, so the smaller wheel works great.

Our estimations are around $990 shipped - it really is a labor intensive project that requires precise machinerry and highly qualified technicians - that is why it took so long to develop the first C6 prototype - we had to find a company that will ensure that the best technology available is applied to this product.

Now that the C6 prototype is completed we are starting with C5 one. Anyone interested in preordering the wheel with special discount? We'll gladly offer a GroupBuy with the price around $850 shipped and another $50 as a REFUND upon your posting referrals on forum / facebook / instagram with a few good photos of the wheels installed in your cars and links to our website.

What do you think?

Take care

Very likely in...however any idea how much smaller the wheel will be? I currently have a 350mm Momo wheel that I love the diameter of. I really want the wheel to be as close to that as possible.

As you see in the photos we make the C6 steering wheel 343mm in diameter. We can make the C5 even smaller as there are no plastic trims on the spokes that did not allow us to make the C6 wheel smaller. But I honestly don't think it is reasonable to make the wheel smaller than this - it may turn out too small for you to turn the wheel comfortably - it will force you to cross your hands much earlier than with the stock wheel and hurt your driving experiencee insteat of upgrading it...

Outstanding.

350 is perfect, in my opinion. I had a 330mm wheel on my car at one point and it was way too small. If you can get the C5 wheel into the 350-360 range, that's perfect.

I'd sign up for a group buy...I'd also send my wheel if you needed it.

I'm interested in one for my'02 C5 ..... but not toooooo much smaller. Probably 3/4" smaller would be perfect. That doesn't sound like much but I think it would make a big visual difference. It's approx 380 stock. I think 360mm would be good. Also must keep the airbag.
