I'm saying from a functional standpoint. You have to do a lot to gain credibility when you have 121 thundering horses.

Damn, looks good.

I want to get a racing steering wheel but I sorta wanna keep my face if I get into an accident. That's the only thing stopping me from doing it. I feel more confident that I have an airbag to help save my face or my life incase anything happens.

^^^^then you better hope you're holding that airbag wheel at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions cause if you're just chilling with your hands on any other part during deployment.... say goodbye to that pretty face with some broken knuckles!

I'll take my car with no airbag/no traction control thankyou.

I'd rather have broken knuckles over a mangled face or something worse.

I usually drive with my left hand at the 9 o'clock position and my right hand on my shifter. So I might be able to avoid the knuckle breakage!

It is true what Randy said. That is one of the reasons why this guy in driving school was bitchin at me to hold the wheel properly,which would be 3-9.It is crazy how hands can hurt you when they are all over.

i usually hold it the same way.. or 12oclock and shifter.. how would your knuckles break though? if your arm isnt tense, upon impact it would just bend at the elbow joint when ur body is thrown forward.. no? and the aribag deploys from the center of the wheel..
