Race Car back on-the-track

Written on September 1, 2017 in Case Studies

A midlands based historic motor-racing team required a neat and lightweight solution for attaching a steering wheel to a steering wheel centre in a historic race car. Using 6 off Trisert-3’s self-tapping 6238M5-303 inserts installed into the machined T6 Aluminium centre, they were able to reduce the length of the bolts they would normally use and remove the nuts and washers that would normally be used on the back of the steering wheel centres. This gave a more aesthetic, easier to service installation along with a sought-after weight-saving. The team were very pleased with the solution and are looking to use other Trisert-3 inserts on their race cars in the future.
