Our mission is still to keep DERBY*GOKIT ® inexpensive, allowing more kids to participate.
The second most asked question we get is ... Can I buy a steering wheel for the Gokit? The answer is still - It is not necessary to buy a steering wheel because a wooden steering wheel, constructed using 5/8" plywood (purchased separately), works very well.However, after 40 years in business selling the DERBY*GOKIT®, we are testing the market and selling a new product ... the 'upsell steering wheel', as shown in the photo below.
The 'upsell steering wheel' is approximately 11 inches in diameter, made of steel & polyurethane construction, and, has a bolt hole configuration that mates with the steering plate that comes with the DERBY*GOKIT®.
The 'upsell steering wheel' also comes with a decorative plastic cover that can be used to cover up the DERBY*GOKIT®'s steering plate (but I am sure that nobody would do that).
Pricing and Shipping
1) Each 'upsell steering wheel' is an additional $54.95 CAD (shipped within Canada) or $39.95 USD (shipped to the USA), taxes and Expedited shipping included.
2) The 'upsell steering wheel' can only be purchased in conjunction with a purchase of a Gokit.
3) The 'upsell steering wheel' will be shipped along with the DERBY*GOKIT® you have purchased.
