Short hub for r32 GTR

Hello all!

I know this may be a dumb question but from the research I've done it's still unclear to me. I've got a 92 GTR that I ordered an NRG wheel for with the intentions of putting a quick release on as well. But upon further investigation I've not found a short hub that's compatible with the lovely HICAS system. Is there one out there that anyone knows about?

And if not, is there a company that I can just purchase the boss hub from instead?

Thank you all for your time!

Austen

I don't have an answer for you on a short hub, as the only short hub I've seen gets rid of the HICAS sensor on the steering wheel. But I plan to eliminate the HICAS system, so I'm not worried about it.

But this guy wrote a blog about using a HICAS adapter boss to do an aftermarket wheel: The SkyLife: Steering Wheel Removal, Swap, Aftermarket Upgrade and Replacement

Thanks man!

Another quick question being that you're deleting your HICAS system, is it worth keeping?

I'm going to delete it because I'm just not a fan of the 4-wheel steering. It'll shed a little bit of weight doing it too. Simplifies the handling of the car in my opinion. Some people love it though.

You'll hear different opinions on this from different people - some street drivers feel it makes the car seem more agile but track drivers typically disable it stating that it makes the handling feel weird at the upper limits. I know the ATCC R32 race car drivers disliked it and removed the system - I'm not sure about the JTCC cars but AFAIK they also disabled it.

My car came with it already disabled. I need to get around to swapping my wheel as well since I have a Nismo wheel still lying around waiting to be put on.

I forgot to mention this but I saw this while shopping for parts before and it's supposed to be HICAS compatible.
