    I'm not sure if you're talking about steering or braking/accelerating. Before I shot my upper body I was training with a suregrip and really liked it (and spinner knob). I haven't started again since my upper body injury, but I got these alternate steering recommendations:

    Hi ThisGuy.

    For the past 13 years, I drove with EMC egbII gas/brake. Cost $10k back then, today it costs $30k. I think that is unconscionable! I do not generally wish ill will on anyone, but that level of greed needs to be punished. I hope they go out of business. If they do not change their pricing, I am sure they will. This consumer voted with his wallet and went with a competing product - Sure Grip.

    Just did a driver / ot assesment. It was easy and a fraction of the cost!

    What exactly are you looking for? I'm a quad C5-6 and sure-grips work the best for me

    For those that are using Sure Grips....... Any you that have a tri-pin mounted on them?? What are y'all using for turn signals?

    For the op.....i've been using mpd 3700's for twenty-two years on the left side in full-size ford vans.

    I'm about a week away from driving a 2011 silverado 2500hd. I'll be using
    Menox hand controls with a 3700 tri-pin mounted on top with rocker turn signal switches. but mounted on the right-side....it's going to take some getting use to..........

    Random,

    It seems that an "m" rather than an "n" is needed as the first letter, after the first dot, in the first link provided in your post.

    I Agree. Stay away from EMC if possible. Way too expensive, it needs to be serviced every 500 hrs then at 1500 hrs sent back to EMC, which is a fortune. Just did the same thing. Ripped out all EMC equipment and going MPD. I would never recommend EMC.

    I don't use a tri-pin, for me it it gets in my way. I use the blinkers, what are you using?
