Default Hiro Seiki Aluminum Steering Wheels

I picked this up when I visited japan 2 weeks ago.

It's all made out of aluminum. Even the brake disk. Pretty cool, huh?

Yup, they have adaptors for KO, Futaba and Airtronics(Sanwa)

The steering wheel alone is 4600Yen, and the brake disk is 1200Yen. So 5800Yen Total.
