This Is My Knex Wii Wheel With Auto-Centering. This Means That When You Turn The Wheel, It Will Automatically Center Itself. The Bottom Looks A Bit Weird But Its Handy, You Can Set The Height.
A Knex Wii Wheel With Auto-Centering Wasn't My Idea, I Saw It At Instructables (Made By Bartboy).
I Called This V1 Because I Think I'll Make A V2 Of It. But I Don't Now When I'll Make That.

If You Have Any Questions Or Problems, Please Leave A Message. Maybe That Will Also Help Me For The V2. Ofcourse You May Also Leave A Message, Just For Your Opinion.
