Sparco is a bit smaller than stock, Momo is same as stock. Momo is flatter (less dish) so wheel is farther away. have Recaro SRD in car which allows me to sit marginally farther back than stock seating position, so the added reach of the Sparco is good to go with wanting legs to be extended a bit but needing to have leverage/reach on the steering wheel with the de-powered power rack. I could really go silly and put the Momo with the quick-release, but that seems like too much.


and I can keep whatever I choose safe from the sun a bit with one of the CobraJet Mustang Weld wheel cozies I have bunches of :

#2 Sparco wheel. By a Country Mile. Where did you get the wheel cozies?

I have to get out & drive with both wheels to see how they feel, I like the less racey look of the Momo, but the reach of the Sparco may be better-er. we will see. the SRD is mucho nice.

the CobraJet Mustang drag cars get wheels & tires mounted by Roush, a group I support is located in the building where wheels are mounted, I get the cozies and the cardboard dividers which are in each wheel box if I happen to be around the shop when they are doing wheels. the Weld drag wheels are 15s so not great for larger wheels, but work great for steering wheels and smaller alloys which are in storage.

random dumb guy question - how do you get a wagon seatback out of the car ? I have one which is removed and it looks like it's just a slip fit onto the unibody, but can't see how to get the one in the car out (has the seatback release lever broken).

it's heading towards being 75 and sunny out for the first time this year, so off to the garage/yard/driveway for me - too nice to stay inside...

Sparco matches the angular 240 goodness... Momo needs a meltier looking car to match.

Sparco for the "racy" look, Momo for comfort on long drives as it has indents where you can place your thumbs alongside the wheel. Why? Because if you have to hook your thumbs around the wheel it can get tiresome, plus which if you get into an incident where the wheel is wrenched from your hands you could wind up with damaged thumbs.

The momo one is awesome, but not for your car, so I vote sparco.

after a bit of a drive with the Sparco, it's not bad from a steering efforts standpoint, being suede and having myself a bit closer to the wheel improves leverage, it can only get better when the 235/45-17s are replaced with 185/whatever-15s on the orange wheels, then whatever I run when I get Dale's adapters.

the SRD + overall racy-ish feel of the car means the Sparco fits, but I will have to see what the Momo feels like. being closer to the stalks, which the Momo will do may be useful, but we'll see.

no one has the answer on the removal of the rear seat back ?

rear seat back has 2 bolts near the seat belts I think... It might not have any. A friend pulled out the interior while I was working on packing bearings.

It is a slip fit, but the locking pins are spring loaded. They have to be leveraged outward on the one in the car to clear the retaining clip. A large flathead screwdriver and some man handling will get it out. The best method I have found is to remove the lower seat cushion portion of the seat, and then fold the upper portion down. Then the retaining thingies are more readily accessible.

Good luck with the seat swap...

Definitely dished and suede. I have one myself, 90mm dish. Perfect in a 240.

ah, figured it might be something like that but hadn't looked too closely. have the lower seat out, so that will make things easier.

seat swap is done, just have to figure out what to do with the pass side, the SRD went right in, no issues. I'll have to find someone who wants the S70 seats which were in the car. the car is sort of strange and cool with only the driver's seat and no other seats, just lots of nice, clean black carpet. tho I could do with a new set of it as well, it's in somewhat rough shape in some areas.

I say Sparco, they are both really nice but I don't think the roundness of the momo goes with the interior of a 240

The Sparco definitely fits better with the aesthetics of the interior.
