Thanks, Pete
Just figured it out. Simply pop off the center cap and remove the retaining screw.

Ya I am curious if it worked on the speky radio as well...

UPDATE: Checked AllSpeed.. the add offers adapters as "KO/JR". With that I think it would be safe to "assume" they work on Spektrum radios...

not sure if they made an adapter for Spektrum.

when i got mine, there was only an adapter for Futaba and Sanwa...

but i could be wrong... maybe the website of Hiro Seiki would clear this up...

I saw there are one which fit on DX3 but not sure if it's also for the new one DX3R, anyway will release sooner for the new one if the old one it's different.
Thanks for reply

After using my Hiro Seiki wheel for the past few months, I find that the foam steering wheel cover is way too soft. At the end of an 8 minute race, it is completely compressed against the aluminium hub. To remedy this, I ended up removing the stock foam cover and replacing it with more dense-foamed cover from an older AM transmitter. Due to the smaller overall diameter of the Hiro Seiki steering wheel, I had to cut the foam cover, remove about 2-3 mm of material, and resplice it with CA. I attached it back to the aluminum wheel using rubber contact cement. IT has a much better feel and better grip. Hopefully the manufactuer of the Hiro Seiki steering wheel will change over to a more dense foam.

My foam piece came loose so I replaced it the on from Futaba 3PKS. It's even softer.

the wheel i got has some sharp edges on its rim. almost cut myself a few times. so i sanded the edges with some #800 sandpaper then re-polished it with #1000 sandpaper...

i also changed the foam on my wheel to a thicker foam from another brand...


hope the Hiro Seiki Guys can improve the milling on the rims a bit to prevent this sort of thing from happening to others...

How is the quality on the adapter for their alloy wheels? Does it have any slop?

Thanks.

The adapter is dead on. No slop at all.
