NRG systems seem to be quite good and popular. I wouldn't get a cheap non branded one as you don't want it failing on you.

I wouldn't touch NRG. Search them on Youtube to see why. For a quick release, Works Bell all the way.

Oh really? I always thought they were the top choice since they're everywhere on builds. Interesting!

Yeah they're pretty crap tbh. Just rebranded Chinese tat. Cause its essentially your only connection to the steering of the car, I wouldn't touch them.

Assuming you want to keep the steering wheel in approximately the same position to yourself, you'll be looking for a slimline boss as well as the quick release. For the quick release, I'd recommend sticking to the main motorsport manufacturers like OMP, Sparco, etc. Personally I prefer the "Group N" design releases. I used an OMP for a long while, which was useful in that it didn't have the typical splines (in which it's easy to put your steering wheel back on off-center), but rather a unique shape that meant it could only go on dead-center. Quality product too. Got it from Rallynuts, who are great to deal with. Actually, I might even still have it in the garage. Will see if I can find some pics.

Your other consideration with a quick release is your horn. If you want/need it on the steering wheel, you'll also need to sort out your wiring and connectors for that. No point have a quick release steering wheel if you've still got to fluff about with wiring every time you take it on or off.
