    Am I the only person that hates the steering wheel in the FiST?

    I’m wondering if I’m the only one that hates the steering wheels in the FiST. The bottom of the steering wheel were the stitching is drives me crazy! I usually let my hand rest on the stitching and after awhile it starts to hurt a bit and becomes uncomfortable. Anybody know of any solutions?

    Why are your hands resting on the bottom for that long? Not the safest way to hold the wheel but they do make covers that fit.

    Yep...don't do that. Seriously, not sure what else you expect to hear other than that or cover it. Might be the ideal time to try one of those cool Alcantara covers, but it still has stitching. Wear gloves?

    The perforated leather is so nice. No complaints at all on the steering wheel itself, but the electronic rack is kind of numb.

    Agreed the wheel is not the best. I haven’t had the same problem with you about the stitching hurting. I dont like how its a 3 spoke and not a 4. I like to relax my laft hand at the center of the bottom of the wheel for long highway drives, but cant in the fist. The steering wheel is also huge! I dont notice it too much anymore but whenever a buddy hops in for the first time its almost always the first thing they say.

    Seems to be OK for me.
    Turn the wheel right and the car goes right.
