I wanted to change out my Assault hub when the NRG short/slim hub came out. @SlingMods was awesome about keeping me updated on the release of this item and shipping was quick, as always.

I really like the NRG hub! I would give it 9 out of 10 stars.

Below are some of the points I like of this hub....

  • the black wrinkle finish and logo look really nice
  • it matches all my other NRG items
  • it covers the clock spring nicely and looks really professional
  • it was really easy to take on and off (did it 3 times and it never got stuck)
  • it is shorter than other hubs on the market
  • feels more sturdy; less wiggle and vibration in wheel now
  • nylon nut works better with the set-up
Below are some pictures of the new NRG hub and how it compares to my old Assault hub...







So everyone knows below is what my current wheel setup is...
NRG Slingshot Specific Hub
NRG Universal 3.0 Quick Release System
NRG Limited Edition Carbon Spoke Wheel - 6 bolt universal

Final thoughts...
It may be the more expensive than some of the other hubs, but it looks and works better than anything else I have seen. Overall, I think it is a good buy.

Here is where you can find it...

Nice set up! that's what I'm looking to do as well. Just wondering if you need to connect and disconnect horn wires every time you use the quick release? I have another set up and it required that so I sent it back

Hey TCB, it's 1/2" farther from the driver than stock.. but must be used in conjunction with a quick release for proper wheel alignment. The quick release system is 2.5", bringing the net result 2" closer to the driver with quick release.

Hello Tony, you will not. The NRG quick release system has two round contact points that allow the horn signal to be carried to the wheel through the quick release without fumbling with wires.

I must say, the NRG set-up I have now works really good. It is sturdy, looks way better, and was much easier to put on and take off for final alignment.

I find that having the steering wheel slightly closer is more comfortable. The Assault was a tad too much for me, but the NRG is pushed back away just a little more.

This makes it more comfortable for more aggressive driving and allows my left elbow to rest on the side panel plastic comfortably when cruising.



When you need more room, just take the wheel off in a quick second.

A drive around all the time with no wheel when I am reading the newspaper and shaving. You can just steer by grabbing the hub. ;) Its a joke people.

@TCB Not to rain on your parade, but you probably won't find a setup with a nice functioning quick release that sits at stock wheel position... The quick releases are going to eat up a couple of inches.

Someone requested this in one of the NRG hub threads....




Measurement can slightly vary depending on angle/tilt of wheel.

To me it looks like this setup puts you about 1.25 inches closer to driver.

@Jason Chou

What is the thinnest NRG quick release that will work with the new NRG hub? How much thinner is it then the 3.0 that I am running?

Hi TravAZ,
All of our quick releases, gen 2.0, 2.5, 2.8 and 3.0 are with the same 2.5" in depth. Our thin quick release also works with the slingshot hub. The thin quick release is 1" in depth only. That will put you at 0.5" more compare with stock wheel whereas regular quick releases put you at 2" more

Just to clarify...if you want to run just the thin hub with a steering wheel you would have to use the .5" riser as well, right?

So if I am reading this correctly, if I use the new NRG Short Hub with the NRG Thin Quick Release and a relatively flat form steering wheel, my new setup should be 1/2" further from the dash than stock, right? I can live with that and just want to be sure before ordering. @TCB will that work for you?

Yes, but In heard its 1 1/2" to 2" Its hard to get a good answer to that question.

Well it looks like I've answered my own question. Reviewing the manufactures web site I found that the Thin Quick Release is not compatible with either the Short Hub or the Quick Lock. Glad I didn't order them! Back to square one, this sure is confusing!!!

NRG stated the below earlier in the thread.... @Jason Chou

Maybe he can clarify if the below will work....

If this set-up works, I think Jason said it would be roughly .5 inches closer than the stock wheel setup. Maybe @SlingMods can also clarify....
