This wheel is great fun to casually use with your SpinTrak encoder, but it’s clear it isn’t designed for robust or professional use.
The wheel itself doesn’t appear to fit perfectly onto the spindle. Whilst both are 6mm and perfectly match, the depth of the hole isn’t long enough to allow the whee to sit firmly on top of the flange of the encoder. So if you were considering using this for a professional installation, this situation would result in much greater wear and tear on the encoder spindle which can bend more easily.
Secondly, there’s no grub screw or any way to hold the wheel onto the spindle. So completely not usable in a professional installation. SpinTrak’s own flywheels and knobs come with a grub screw and they even give you the allen key, but not for this wheel.
So, it’s fun for your own driving rig, and maybe useful for some testing, but not feasible for production purposes.
The 7" wheel size is just perfect to mount on arcade cabinet. This is exactly how racing games in MAME are meant to play! In case if you're wondering I'm mounting it atop of SpinTrak using the 2P third row button in my X-Arcade TankStick.
