If you're based in USA, I suggest you spend a small part of your budget and go to Crimson Simulation in North Carolina.
They have a range of different seat and chassis motion rigs side by side that are roughly in your price range, running a range of different high-end hardware.
That will give you the best idea of what you will like.
About two decades ago, I bought a steering wheel that mounted to the desk and started racing in Nascar. I think it was actually dial-up at that point. Life got in the way and then I actually got my competition racing license and started racing wheel to wheel on road courses. At one point, I bought a new racing wheel to try to learn some of the tracks in Iracing before I got there. The actual racing took up so much time, I didn't have a lot of time for sim racing. Now my 7 year old son has started racing a kart and my time for real racing is so limited, I'm thinking of sim racing again.
My time for building a DIY rig is really nonexistent. I was really thinking of a full motion rig as I will be using this more for the entertainment idea than for trying to be a competitive sim racer. I would also like it to be a training tool for my son. I think him sim racing would really elevate his driving when we get to the track.
My max budget is probably around $20-$25k. I would love to be less than that but am looking for something is worth the money. I was looking at a Simgear unit but was also looking at the simexperience VR 3DOF upgraded with the GS5 seat and the simvibe chassis, the stage 5 pc and the Logitech sound.
Can anyone help me with suggestions as I have no real idea what I'm doing as this is all above my head.
Can anyone please help me with the steps involved in center-calibrating the Forza ClubSport wheel/2.5 Hub in PC mode? It drives me crazy. I've tried to follow the instructions in the video below using START/X and START/A instead of both joysticks (because my wheel does not have two joysticks) and yet every time the wheel restarts flashing the CAL message and is 45 degrees off to the left after it runs its start-up routine. Grrr. Would really appreciate some help with the steps as I am getting nowhere.
