needs a bunch of parts and wanted a Nardi. The wood on the spare one I have is good, but the gold playing was coming off, so I went after it with a razor and sandpaper. Womp Womp.
Anyway, it will probably make a decent painted Nardi. So off to TheProctologist it goes. But wait! There's something I really wanted to try, but couldn't justify drilling the hole larger in any of my decent wheels to try it out. Will a Nardi work with an eccentric adapter to raise it up and view the gauges better? Well, the holes in the Nardi weren't large enough to get the wider bolt though. Fortunately, the good Nardi adapters have a hubcentric ring to center the Nardi, and that what is going to TheProctologist. So making a few holes wider won't hurt him too much.
So what did I do?
- use two drill but sizes to get one hole wide enough to fit the eccentic / momo-style hub adapter bolts through. I ended up using a 15/64th drill bit. (I didn't have to go all the way to 1/4".)
- then drilled just one more hol larger because this is just for testing and I don't need to do them all.
Here is my view of my regular Nardi setup:
Here is the wheel TheProctologist is getting with the momo hub and eccentric adapter:
I can see the bottom of the 80 mph number, which is a much greater view, and in my stick shift, this should really help a lot with the rpms.
I did compare the wheel diameters and they both seem to be the same. The hub with the eccentric adapter added on is certainly longer though.
