So 272+ tax and shipping, sounds good to me. My only concern is the 320mm wheel might be too small? Anyone running a 320 that's unhappy with it? I'm tall so it would be nice to have a bit more room.

ive used a 12.5" steering wheel. its fine with P/S but a pita to turn without. especially if you've got wide sticky rubber.

I dont know. I'll email NRG back on Friday and see if the price point is still good or if they kick us up to the next level since the volume is so low. hopefully they'll let us keep this pricing.

Any idea how much tax + shipping will cost? Reason I ask is I see the same ones online (ebay) for $99 shipped.

$76 + $7 tax? + $15 shipping? = $98 (+$1 in gas to drive to you + time)...haha.

remember that we will be getting a discount on shipping because its going to one place. How about we deal with shipping once it gets here?

I LOVE my 320mm wheel on my race car. I dont have PS and have zero problems with parking or tight turns. It just makes the Miata even more the go-kart it already is.

FYI: ive only received payment from Alan. Please submit your payments through PP or bring the cash in person. IF youre submitting through PP, i need it as a gift. If you prefer to send it normally, add 4% of the total charge to cover fees. Shipping will be dealt with when you come pick up the parts so dont worry about it for now.
