    • Thanks for checking in. Yes, you are correct, only the 8020 parts.
    • Will you take $800 for the pedals
    • Got it! Thanks for the input Yes, I am a DIY guy, but I’ve been there, done that. To be honest, I would like to follow the PnP way....
    • I wrote in greater detail, but here's a synopsis; You are fortunate there are several good direct drive options on the market; it just depends on how much work you want to put in to get them running. Fanatec Podium series is pretty much plug and play. Others have recommended leaving your options open for motion. If you are a DIY guy, look up the open source SFX-100 motion system. Very affordable and many builders can offer advice. Biggest investment in addition to the actuators and aluminum profiles is a 3D printer to create components or paying to have them printed. Also, look into tactile which goes a long way to increasing the pleasure of the sim racing experience. Search online for the extensive Tactile Immersion thread on this by RaceDepartment contributor Mr. Latte and others. Good luck with your search, Chris
