Default M8 Wheel Removal

Can anyone tell me how to remove the steering wheel off of the M8 radio?

Pry the sticker off and unscrew it.

it is not a sticker. The cap over the screw on the stock wheel has small catch clips in two spots. To take it off without damaging the wheel cap you will need to take a very thin tool along the sides of the cap where the clips are and gently pry the tool end inwards to release them. The tricky part is doing it with two tools.

I stand corrected.

I thought it was like the wheel on the MX-3S, because they look identical to me.

Dont change wheels almost every one is weak and breaks real easy. Just go and get better foam or paint the Stock one (that is what I did and it looks trick) Well it did till I sold my M8 for a Helios
Hope this helps

There is a clip on either side of the steering wheels hub. I have had mine for quite a while, over a year. Actually I used the M8 wheel on my R1. I wanted to test the M8 on mine first to see if it fits and it does.

yeah to get the wheel off the m8 you need two flat head scew drivers and work your way around lightly pryinthe center cover off once you get it off you just have to unscrew it and your done. Its kind off a pain to get the cover off just to let you know

You can get them from me. I am out right now just waiting to get more and have them anodized. What color were you looking for?

Thanks

I am looking to get a black one and a blue one. When you get some in, what do I need to do to purchase some from you?
