Instead of attaching and detaching the Quick Release like on the Works Bell Rapfix II Quick Release, with the Rapfix GTC the steering wheel simply tilts upwards.

With the Rapfix GTC, you can get in and out with ease from cars equipped with bucket seats or sports type seats by tilting up the steering wheel.

Furthermore, you can work with ease on the dashboard and foot pedal area which was previously unreachable.

It uses Works Bell's patented ball lock system to realize both design appeal and functionality.

Through the application of the patented features of RapFix, and using a ball to join the concave and convex sections, a smooth connection and reduction of chatter are achieved.

In the same way as the patented Works Bell Rapfix II Quick Release, equipment parts of high stability and reliability have been fully developed in the tilting Rapfix GTC. The ball lock system Rapfix GTC incorporates powerful high technology in every part.

The Rapfix GTC is machined and assembled with absolute precision by Works Bell's engineers in Works Bell's production facility in Nagano, Japan. It is precision Japanese engineering at it's absolute finest.

Steering Wheel & Hub / Boss Kit Compatibility

There is no welding required to fit a Works Bell Rapfix GTC Quick Release to your car - it is strictly a bolt on product with no welding required. It even has built in contacts for your car's steering wheel horn button.

At the steering wheel end, the Rapfix GTC ships pre-machined with bolt holes in both standard 6 bolt Momo bolt pattern steering (PCD 70mm), and 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern (PCD 74mm).

Of course it is compatible with all Works Bell steering wheels, including the Works Bell Original Steering Wheel, the Works Bell Team Orange Steering Wheel, and the Works Bell Yoshioka Steering Wheel.

The other end of the Rapfix GTC that attaches to the steering boss / hub has a 6 bolt (PCD 70mm) bolt pattern, the same bolt pattern as used on Momo steering bosses / hubs.

The end that attaches to the steering boss / hub can also be attached to many compatible 6 bolt Nardi bolt pattern steering bosses / hubs (PCD 74mm), by using the Works Bell Conversion Spacer (see photo). The conversion spacer is a very useful product which allows you to fit compatible Momo bolt pattern products to Nardi bolt pattern products and vice versa.

The Rapfix GTC is available in both silver and black.

It has a red safety lock as shown in the photos below.

It attaches to road car style steering wheel bosses.

Two step locking mechanism

untitled image

Taking pains not to sacrifice safety and comfort, a “Two-step lock” is employed as a measure in cases of emergencies. As long as the safety trigger is not made to slide, the lock is not released. Hence, the steering wheel does not tilt up with inadvertent contact while driving.

Further, a tilted steering wheel is suspended (stopped) in about 6 stages depending on how the plunger mechanism is engaged.

Your horn still works

Furthermore, a “horn button” may also be used. The horn terminals are built-in inside the main body of the Rapfix GTC and in the tilt-up section (socket). When tilted up, electric current to the horn switch is cut-off. When tilted down current is restored through a contact point specific to the purpose.

Superior advantages over existing products
In many of the products of other companies with similar functions, suppression of chatter due to radial load for steering is made difficult by structural problems and sacrificing reverse, steerability, steering feel and other factors that bring about the comfort of tilt up.

In RapFix GTC, however, the use of B.L.S. (ball lock system) made it possible to realize surpassing quality in existing products.
