JConcepts’ popular Hazard short course wheel is now available in “steering wheel size” to outfit the Airtronics/Sanwa M12 and MT4 radios. The Hazard radio wheel is precision moulded like its siblings but sized appropriately for one of the most successful radio lines on the market. The inside of the wheel features the hex location and mount-up point from the stock assembly but also the location notches in just the right places. Between the inside and outside beads, tiny ribs help align the foam grip and help lock it into place. Holes are located on the bottom side for the standard access to the steering stops while a couple vent holes help the wheel look like the real thing. Included with the wheel is a pre-installed Dirt-Tech foam grip.

JConcepts have introduced the Dirt Racing Products Dirt Wheel yellow foam grip for many of today’s pistol grip transmitters. Specifically designed for the Sanwa/Airtronics M12, the Dirt Wheel steering grip has a convenient size which allows for use on multiple radios including Futaba, KO Propo and Spektrum. The outer diameter has a smaller size based on the actual diameter used by Brian “Dirt” Kinwald himself and this size gives drivers great control regardless of hand gripping size. Justified toward the outside section, revolved cuts identify the wheel as being unique but also provide an additional feel while orienting the grip in the opposite direction places the revolved cuts just under the finger tips. The foam grip comes in set of two pieces.
