      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?

      Thanks

      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 would think long and hard before you replace your 3 Gold, they are a great unit and I am sure it will not take much to get it repaired and then it should give you many more years of good service.

      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!

      Not that there’s anything wrong with the ‘s, there’s certainly more options, just that to get the same functionality of a 3 Gold in a 4, it will cost you more than $800….
