Thank you! It's mostly rigged from X25's parts list epica but I added a few new pieces gathered from L99CAMA2011's experiences. Credits to Justice Pete. Cheers.

Soon! How do you fare in the traffic on the way to nearby tracks/autocross? I can feel my car flying up in flames every time I get stuck in the thick of it. Keeping all that power at bay in stop and go speeds gives me anxiety.

Has there been any discussion regarding steering wheel alternatives (looking at Sparco) and wheel diameter optimization? This is a touchy subject. The oven-mitt cupping method on factory steering wheel is not comfortable. Thanks!

Luckily I don't drive in traffic with the Camaro often. I hate sitting in traffic with a passion lol. So I usually drive early morning or late evening. Coming back from Marina on Sunday evenings is probably the most traffic and it's not too bad luckily. Some groups are really good about starting earlier on Sundays and ending their events earlier like 3pm. There are two routes back home (through Gilroy or Santa Cruz).

Not really, x25 used his stock 1LE suede steering wheel, and I just bought the same to put on my car. Since my car is also my DD, I didn't to lose airbag/steering controls functionality with some of the "racing" wheels
