    Steering wheel hand positions.

    Maus posted a pic the other day depicting the positions different people place their hands on the steering wheel on. Something like this(not same pic,couldn't find it)



    For a couple of days I have been analyzing where I place my hands.

    When I'm in a rush & most of the time my hands are at racecar driver position. No matter what car I drive. When I'm relaxed & cruising along its a combination of racecar & farmer. I never go full farmer & never go Mom position.

    What about you guys & and you two girls?

    I'm always at racecar driver. It's the proper placement and it's actually how they're teaching it now. No longer 10 & 2, but 9 & 3.

    I was taught that the mom position was because airbags can be pretty damaging to your wrists/arms in a crash and that position kept them safest. Anybody else heard that and is there any truth to it?

    That's what I use most of the time, except when going racecar. I may casually grip the top in parking lots, low speed areas, or for short drives.

    My hands are wherever it feel comfy, shifting positions quite often... I don't really pay attention, don't care, as long as I have the hold I need.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Most of the time I'm in a one-handed "race-car driver" position, as I'm too lazy to put the second hand up after a shift. Unless I'm driving more actively, that is.

    I typically ghost-ride my Subie. But when I need hands on the wheel for turning and stuff, race-car.

    What if you steer with your knees? Im usually around racecar since I like my hands near my steering wheel controls.
