As far as I know, there is no longer a "for sure" answer since Minspeed went out of business. You can buy an eBay one and hope it fits. The Sparco one fit for sure, but you never know what you re getting with the adapters off eBay.

The works bell one will fit 100%, but it is hard to get and expensive.

Any word on this man?

Is there any way to find out before we buy it if it will work or not IE a different part number?


Also on the older MOMO hub will the clock spring line up so DSC still works, or do you need to machine out a notch for it?

the only problem with the old momo hub was that it wouldnt alloy the turn signals to turn off automatically, you had to do it manually.


I had a friend who was suppose to call momo and ask, but not sure if she did. That is something you could do also is call momo directly and ask them.


you can always try one of these

the sparco hub isnt made anymore for the mini, but you can try some of these companies to see if they still have one in stock. I have one and it works great
