Question Aftermarket Steering Wheels/adapters Stack Heights

There are plenty of threads around about aftermarket steering wheels, hubs, adapters etc, but none have really answered my question about stack height.

Stack height seems to be important to people who are trying to reposition the driver’s seat back and lower to help with CG so getting the wheel to a comfortable position for the driver is important.

What I'm trying to figure out is using some of the available hubs and quick release adapters where did the wheel end up in relation to the trim plastic around fixed switches.

Do did you move the wheel toward the driver? Away from the driver? Stock location?

My setup is:

Daikei s-501 hub (this thing is unreal)
Sparco/Prodive Competition wheel

it moved my wheel position back about an inch. without the QR it would have been very very close to the stock position.

i used to be able to flick my indicators without any second though, and after installing the whole setup it took me a while to get used to them being more than a fingers length away. it just takes a little stretch of the finger now. obviously this is subject to each persons finger size, but it should serve as some kind of reference.

i also moved my seating postion back about two notches on the slider rail. which would be the same in any car equipped with OEM seats. i have v2 STI seats for reference.

I have a '04 STi. My parts list is:
Momo Hub
Prodrive/WorksBell RapFix quick release
and the Sparco/Prodrive steering wheel.

Stock the outer edge of the steering wheel is 4.75" from the steering column plastic covers.
With the aftermarket wheel it is 7.75", which is 3" closer to you than stock. The quick release is nearly 3". With the wheel mounted to the hub only, it would be about the same as stock. In a driving position with both hands on the wheel your arms are bent more. You do have to reach for the turn signal and wiper stalks when using them. Auto-cancel remains in tact with the Momo hub and it includes the 3.3 ohm resistor to keep the airbag light functioning. I did not change my seat adjustments any since it feels more natural for me now during aggressive driving.
