I have a 3 gold that has gone haywire (not reading temps correctly) and thinking about upgrading to a 4. My 3 gold mounts behind the steering wheel. My question is, will the 4 mount in the same place in the same wheel or do I need to buy a new wheel too? If the 4 has to be mounted on top of the wheel, is there any way I can use my existing wheel?
I assume you’re talking about Mychron brand steering wheels. The Mychron-3 and 4 are completely different shape so the 4 will not mount in the opening of a 3 steering wheel (from the bottom side). You may be able to make an adapter to somehow mount the 4 on top of the wheel or possibly use threaded rod to extend the length of the stud on the bottom of the Mychron.
I had the same issue with faulty temp readings on a Gold – it was nothing more than light corrosion on the board – cleaned and returned by MyChron for about 30 bucks. I also went to a 4 from a Gold – all of my karts now however, carry the 3’s!
We may not be the fastest on the track...but we're having the most fun!
