I found this. This with a chair from a junkyard car may work? Would have to screw it to a wood box or something though. Emm not sure.
It's a logitech G29 wheel/pedals and a playseat.
The wheel is about $500. If you buy the optional shifter, that's another $80. A playseat will run you another $500+ depending on what you get.
I have same setup + shifter, but not a playseat, I use this
Because I don't have room for a dedicated chair, and the stand I linked folds up nicely for storage.
Edit: Amazon tells me the 3 together (my stand + shifter + wheel/pedals) runs in at $690cad.
Is it worth it? I can't really say, depends on how much you like to race. I can say that the pedals/shifter are pretty much worthless without a stand or playseat. Every desk I've ever had was woefully inadequate at keeping attached. Bolting it all into place on a rigid/heavy frame makes a huge difference.
Ok playing Elite Dangerous just need to make some brackets to hold my Saitek X52 pro and next month I'm get one of these to hold my g27 to play project cars. For room scale game I push the chair to side of my room, it's on castors. This gives me a 2x2m play space.
People who have set ups like that and who have the CV1 say different. No more need for monitors or monitor stands. All they need now is this
I highly recommend buying something like this or building it if you have the skills, it has come in really handy for V.R. with both my Saitek X52 pro HOTAS and my Logitech G27...also get a Logitech G27.
I recently picked up this:
It's really sturdy and makes it fairly easy to put the entire set up away when not in use.
I've got a wheel stand pro, so I just pick the whole thing up and move it out of the way then move my seat in front of the computer. It's not as heavy as it looks.
Additionally, if I ever feel I need to, like moving and such, this stand folds up, but that's just extra steps for not much space saved (IMO), and I like to keep my setup feeling the same each time I get that racing itch.
I ordered the Logitech G920 and the Wheel Stand Pro V2 ([link]). The Logitech wheel should ship early October. It has 3 pedals. The wheel has paddle shifters and had been getting a ton of love about the quality and capabilities.
I thought about ordering the gear shift box as the separate add-on but paddle shifting is common with many high end, high performance vehicles and everyone knows that clutch + paddle shifters is much quicker and smoother than using a gear box. As soon as it arrives, I'll give my thorough feedback. Can't wait.
Yea I was looking at this but the middle post looks kind of obnoxious as well as the price. It really does not impress me like the other but is about half the price. But they did said you get what you pay for lol
Could always keep it and use: [link]
Have a friend that has one that loves it. He hauls it to/from our LAN parties with no issues, pretty light and doesn't take up too much space when collapsed.
Definitely build a mounting solution/cockpit if you have the chance, there or some great DIY guides out there. However, live in an apartment with no access to tools/no construction skills. So i just got on of these [link].
It's pretty stable and folds really compact for storage.
Will the chair fit the stand and will it be low enough for my tv?
I got it with a ...this!
OP, I have this. Recommended: [link]
Which one have you got?
This is the one I ordered
Yeah, I think I am going to end up returning it and picking this up: [link].
Ill try it out when it gets here but if it's wobbly or cheaply made it's going back.
What is the "Saw Horse" you are talking about? Something like this?
What kind of wheel and pedals? Some hardware has wheel/pedal stands available, for example:
I got the Wheel Stand Pro pretty pricy but meh It's really nice. The company also seems very nice as well.
Why not just get This steering wheel And This Mount?
Consider one of these or one of these first.
Just went back to my Amazon purchase history and I'm kind of surprised I paid so much for the Wheel Stand Pro. It is VERY nice, however and included all tools and hardware. The base combined with the pedals is hefty enough that it stays in place in nearly every situation and the center pole really doesn't get in my way at all, even when using left-foot braking. With everything attached to it you can fold it up into a not too compact package that's at least small enough to throw in a closet. What I find nice is that it consolidates three pain-in-the-ass-to-setup pieces of hardware into something I never have to disassemble when I'm done playing.
I also considered this which seems like a nice compromise at half the price. I went with the more expensive one because I wanted something that I could fold up and move around a lot without worrying about breaking the adjustment hardware. I also like the separate shifter plate on the Wheel Stand Pro because I found it annoying having it on the same plane the wheel is clamped to.
If you're the crafty type you could easily build a bulkier and less elegant stand in an afternoon out of $30 worth of lumber. Google "diy wheel stand" for ideas.
