  1. Hey guys, I have not been simracing for over a year much lately so I want to turn this stuff into forged wheels for my real car. I'm posting here before I post to iRacing, I've done some business here before and hope we can make a deal here. You can tell there is not a lot of wear on any of this stuff, metal is still shiny, the Alcantara is not matted at all (I would wear gloves too) So, I have some stuff for sale. I'd prefer to not have to ship if someone wants to come to get all of it. I'm glad to ship, though. 1. Accuforce V1 with an extra slip ring. I have a Momo steering wheel with it with the button box attached and carbon fiber shifters. I still have the stock wheel as well, which is nice, too. The Accuforce v1 is the same as the v2 but has the higher quality ($) case and the slipring designed which was dropped for V2. Also comes with angled mounting brackets. Not a ton of hours on this one. Works great. $800.00 - SOLD! 2. HPP PRX-SE Pedals - These things are absolutely gorgeous, I got these before I stopped simming, they have at most 2 hours on them. They work great and come with the kit to change the brake stiffness, along with extra springs, etc. $1200 - SOLD! Here is a link to the page describing them: http://www.hppsimulation.com/hpp-3-pedal/26-phtv2p.html 3. 4Play Racing Rig - John, the owner called it the GTF1 rig, which is adjustable between an F1 or GT style sitting position. I also have the 3 monitor stand, and some extra 80/20 for increased ridgidity not in the stock model. Also included was the keyboard/mouse holder. I have the original instructions, all hardware, and all of the 80/20 stuff is labeled so you know where what goes where when you are building it. I paid 1650 or so for everything, I'm asking $800. Come get it! Shipping is extra, I would have to break it all down to weigh it and get some idea on shipping but im sure its a couple hundred? I'm sure the seat would be a major bitch to ship. I'm up for ideas, let me know. SOLD! Seat is still available 4. Oculus rift - 3 camera setup 2 hours tops on the rift + touch controllers - $325 I pulled the rig out, there are more parts than pictured, including the triple monitor stand (which is removed, I used Occulus rift) Quick Pics of it all, if you have more requests, just ask
  2. Hi all, I am new to the world of sim racing, but have been a fan of F1 for a while now. I've finally decided it's time to design a sim racing rig and I am looking for some clarification regarding rigs with 2 degrees of freedom. I have seen some setups with stationary screens and some with screens that move with the seat. It seems to me that the screens should remain stationary as the view outside your cockpit is not moving with the vehicle. Given that I am not familiar with the racing games yet, I'm wondering if I am missing something here? Is there a good reason to make the screens move with the seat? Thanks in advance for the advice!

  4. 80/20 Rig with SimXperience 3DOF Motion & Traction Loss Updated my static 80/20 rig to incorporate SimXperience's universal seat kit and 150mm SCN5 actuators. The base is 2100mm x 780mm and all in 40 series profile. If you recall, this is my old rig: http://www.isrtv.com/forums/topic/14202-8020-rig/ The final result uses numerous ideas from various other rig designs on this forum and others. I want to give credit to the following people/sites for my rig: Robert Reidel of www.konsolenracer.de Henning Piez/Ensonic that created this amazing rig as I blantantly copied his tilt/telescoping steering wheel mount. Tino Goergens and his rig. Faro06's rig. Anonymous rig Results: Transfer bearings: Lazy Susan Bearing: Base (2100mm x 780mm): Traction loss base: SimXperience Universal Joint: Dampening bar isolators: Dampening bar with actuators and seat base: Adjustable foot pedal mount: Seat mounted on base: Tilt and telescoping wheel mount: Wheel mount range of adjustment: Cup holder: Update with 40" 4K Vizio TVs and Energy Micro RC speakers: I still have to wire everything up and configure the software. I'll post a video of it in motion soon. Dan

  6. Looking for a first rig to get into sim racing and stumbled across this on eBay... Wondering if anyone has any experience with these? https://m.ebay.com/itm/GAMING-RACING-SEAT-FOR-VIDEO-GAME-PLAYERS-FITS-THRUSTMASTER-STITCH-CHASSIS-SPEED/361902107654?hash=item54430bec06:m:mNxBorOsfTqvLOkejeaaW3Q Sickspeed gaming station. I've been looking at the GT Omega pros or even an openwheeler rig but this looks pretty sweet for the price! The only reference to this rig I could find anywhere Was this not so informative YouTube vid. Lol Any info or other recommendations welcome!
  7. Hello hello! New to the forums and really new to the whole sim hobby in general. I've done about two months of research hmmm'ing and haaa'ing about my purchases and I think I have come to a final decision and I would love to get your folks opinions. A little background about myself and my driving experience. As mentioned I am new to sim rigs but certainly not new to playing simulators. I have been playing a variety of racing simulators (with a game paddle like a scrub) for a long time. More importantly I have some real world track experience in my personal project car, a 1999 Honda civic making just shy of 400whp with pretty much every chassis, braking and suspension mod one could want for a civic (photos attached). I take it to your standard weekend warrior lapping days, and have my fun with it. The reason I mention this stuff is I'd love for some peoples input on wether my proposed setup will meet the demands of a semi serious, semi casual gamer/racer looking to get serious into iRacing and competitive online sim racing. The following is what I have planned: Fanatec Clubsport Wheel Base v2.5 Fanatec Clubsport Pedals V3 /w Performance Kit Fanatec Sequential v1.5 Shifter Fanatec Hydraulic Ebrake Fanatec XBOX One/PC Universal Hub /w Suede Fanatec Wheel (Already Purchased) FT Omega Ultimate Rig /w screen adapter /w keyboard adapter /w wheel desk plate Total: $3800 CDN approximately My biggest dilemma in my setup was choosing between going with an Accuforce V2 "direct drive" setup or the fanatec system. Does anyone who has extensively used both provide some insight on wether the difference is "worth" (subjectively) the $1000 CDN price difference? My other question is about another potential full setup that I can pick up used. Someone somewhat locally to me is selling a ProSimu T1000 2Motion GS-4 Seat - (Commercial version with stronger components and anodized black) Fanatec Clubsport Wheel base V2 Fanatec Clubsport Wheel Universal Hub Fanatec Clubsport Wheel Rim - GT Fanatec Clubsport Shifter SQ v1.5 Fanatec Clubsport Pedal V2 TrackIR Pro - for head tracking all for a total of $4500 CDN. My second question is would I be better off from experience going with a static rig with all brand new and current components, or take advantage of the extreme discounted price of the ProSimU and rare GS-4 seat that I would otherwise not be able to afford. If you couldn't tell my my car, I am all about buying quality parts, and tend to go "balls deep" into my hobbies skipping many of the introductory market points or entry level products but I do however like to get the absolute best bang for my buck. Too many choices, but it's all very exciting and I am looking forward to peoples input. I think I am running out of YouTube videos out there unfortunately lol. Thanks in advance!
  8. I would like to purchase a used Carriage Works VRC 1000. They are not produced anymore. I would like the red model, and preferably with the Tv stand. My name and email are... Ben Booth [email protected] Thank you for your time..
  9. As I'm getting sick and tired of my pedals sliding around all over the floor, I went to a local store and tried out some racing rigs/cockpits. After sitting in the seats (Playseat Revolution and Challenge), I was quickly annoyed by the fact that the back of my head protruded over the upper part of the seats by quite a bit, making it tedious to sit comfortably. Would you guys happen to have any sim-rig suggestions for tall people (194 cm, 6 feet 4⅜ inches)?

    4play racing cockpit

    Hi guys, im really trying to figure out a way of getting a decent rig with the space i have. Im currently runjing the playseat challenge and it just isnt cutting it anymore. I need to be able to add hardware to it. I have been looking on ebay alot and have come across a rig made from 80/20 and looks like it should fit my criteria. The question is has anybody had any experience with 4play racing from the USA? If so could you let me know your thoughts on service and the product overall. Thanks guys in advance.
  11. I am selling my wheel base and pedals the wheel base is the Thrusmaster T300wheel base with the original box. The pedals are Fanatec CSR Elite Pedals. You will be very happy with what you get, everything is in excellent condition. I am selling them for $325 Shipped. F1 Wheel SOLD. U.S. 48 states only.
  12. Dont hate me.. I combined the two! Does this make my sim games feel arcadie? lol. It had to fit the theme of the room. And it's far enough along to call "done". But there are a lot more gauges and LED indicators I would like to install. I made a video of it in its current state and would like to share it. I have lots of photos as well, of the build process.. There is a thread "Hydro Thunder sim Cockpit, the build thread". But it has been Archived and closed? So I'll get to the build photos later but for now here is my custom arcade racing machine in its current state . Its all Fanatec controls.. CSR wheel and Clubsport pedals and shifter. My shifter is the H shift only version. The switchable unit was 2 month backorder when I bought it over a year ago. But I love in nonetheless. My button controls are read by a Symprojects JC32 and my gauge control is Symprojects ProGauge. Their products are awesome. And have great support.
  13. Hey guys, Just trying to see if there is anyone in the Jacksonville, FL area who would be interested in my sim rig. I currently have an Obutto Ozone with triple monitor stand, acrylic tabletop, shifter mount. Have CST GT pedals. Logitech G27. 3 ViewSonic 24 inch 60 hz monitors. Just putting feelers out there to see if I can sell it. Just looking locally, as I think it would be way too much of a hassle to ship.
  14. Hello everyone. I have been a sim racing enthusiast for the past 20+ yrs and being budget minded [as a racer, any extra money should be put towards gas and tires, amirite?!], I've always looked for cost effective solutions and I've never really had the room for a full sim rig. Now that I'm working at a steel fabricator in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, I have have access and the means to put some of what I've always wanted to build into fruition. Using a modular connector system that is rated and tested as OSHA approved safety railing, I've based our system on sturdiness and rigidity. Furthermore, my friends and I invested in wheelstands from popular manufacturers and one thing that has always annoyed us is the middle post several wheelstands featured. Depending on your driving style, this could hinder right foot braking or you just got used to it. Our wheelstand address this with no centre post with ergonomically tested dimensions to suit most sizes. In addition, we have added a variation with adjustability while we continue to develop our V2 sim rig and V3 cockpit. We have developed the V1 wheelstand as a easily assembled kit with an included allen wrench; and all you'll need is a couple of 1/2" wrench to attach the included wheel and pedal plate. All pieces are heavy duty steel to provide the sturdiness required for a stable base that gives you confidence to drive it like you mean it...or stole it! Please check out the pics and let me know what you think! *I wanted to post pics here but I guess I can't yet. So please check out this link for pictures: https://www.facebook.com/BossSimRacing/ **UPDATE: I can post pics now! =)
  15. Hello guys. . . I was wondering if there is any dealer of this 80/20 tubing here in EU. I was checking online shops but shipping from USA is to high for these kind of products. If anyone knows anything I would be grateful.
  16. So, I've been working on this rig for a few months now, it's almost finished on its first stage, I'm planning to make it a 2 DoF sim, and not yet decided between 3 monitors or VR, so let me begin. It could've been easier to buy an already made rig from one of the many manufacturers out there, however, the only one I could buy for a reasonable price (mostly for shipping costs to Mexico) was a playseat, but even when they look nice for a starting setup, I wanted something more robust and with more eye candy, so I decided to go the DIY way, and the first step was to buy the seat, since I'm beggining from scratch, I had to get the seat before making anything else. So, I bought this. The simple fiberglass carcass, it cost me around $80 at my doorstep, the quality of the backside wasn't as high as I hoped it would be, so I took it to a car body shop so they make it nicer, at this moment I decided to give it a Ferrari look to my rig, this was the end result of the work done by the guys at the body shop. I think it looked great, and for $70, I think was a fair price. forgot to mention, that before sending it to the body shop, I had to decide how to mount it, and went for the side mounting option, and drilled the holes to add DIY nuts I made on my CNC, here're the holes drilled. Now came the hardest part, find an upholstery shop that would take the challenge to make something similar to this: I'm glad to know that they were up to the challenge and made a wonderful job, here are some pictures of the seat after the upholstery. It's real leather: The leather is a little loose because they didn't made the seat bel eyelets because I couldn't find where to buy the grommets, I'll come back to this later. This job cost me around $380. While the seat was at the upholstery shop (it took them almost a month, they didn't have any experience making upholstery for this kind of seats), I started working on something that was missing on the seat: The Cavallino, so I made the 3D model on Fusion 360, and CNC machined it: Here's a small video of the finishing pass https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6X9nUdO6tbRa0ZodWQ5clF5UGs, and after that it was just remove it from the aluminum stock and polish it. After sticking it with special glue, this is how it looks on the seat: Then came the mounting plates, also DIY, very similar to the ones sold by Recaro, and added the playseat seat sliders. Currently I'm working on two things at the same time, the grommets and the "chasis" for it, here are the models I have right now, I'm 3D printing the grommets from ABS to maybe make a silicone mold and then cast it in some kind of soft rubber, and the chasis is being made with 2"x2" steel tubing I already have a Thrustmaster TX with the Formula wheel and the T3PA non-Pro pedals, so that's next and I'm planning to make it removable, and something similar to the front of the Vesaro simrig, but with square tubing. Also, I haven't decided yet if I want to make the holes on the leather or just leave it like that, adding the grommets just to finish the backside of the seat, what do you think of it? Do you have any comments, suggestions, critiques?

  19. Hello fellow sim racers, the last months I’ve been lurking around the forum and checked out "almost" all the rigs you guys have, all of them are amazing in their own way. That inspired me to make a “makeshift rig” myself so I started having my own Extreme Budget Sim Rig “EBSR”. (Pictures coming) My Kit: PC: Toshiba Sattelite L50-A-1CU Wheel: Logitech Driving Force GT Handbrake: Logitech Attack 3 Joystick Seat: (New) Fiat Punto Passanger seat / (Old) Ikea Poäng Now my wheel, “handbrake” and my laptop are mounted on a Bedside table that once caught fire in our flat and wasn’t used after that’s why its a bit charred, I carfully mounted some planks of wood on it, including the “inverted mount” for the DFGT pedals that I made yesterday, going to improve the top bit that was kinda makeshift just to try the inverted pedals out. They’re also going to be at a higher angle when that’s finnished. Actually its comfortable position I sit in, I’m sure a propper racing seat would be better. I took out the drawer that was in the bedside table so I have leg room, the computer is sitting on top of 6 comics and a notebook stand so I can see well. My next big upgrades are going to be a big enough monitor and a car seat. The bedside table as no wobble or movement and is comfortable enough for me at the moment. PICTURES!! NOTE: I did everything with hand saws and manual screw drivers, I shed quite some sweat to make this. First how it all started a couple months ago when I bought my first FFB Steering Wheel, The Logitech DFP. Then I also had it on my wobbly desk: How I made my "pedal inversion mod" recently: And temporarely mounted on the Rig: And The Rig itself (Gonna use my actual speakers when I have my rca to aux cable back which I left at a friends house): My Notebook Stand (will be replaced with an actual monitor: And the cable managment (basically the screws that are holding the pedal mod): Its such a funny looking rig but it actually performs better than I expected hahah. [UPDATE] New Seat is here, I got a passenger seat from a fiat punto that had to go to a wrecking yard, so the owner gave me this seat. It still has the foreward and backward moving mechanism and a little bit annoying wheel to adjust the angle of the back. But I gotta say its the most comfortable place to sit in the house at the moment. Now Im just waiting to get my Rig from above images to my new place, then I will take out one of the palettes and it will kinda be in the perfect driving position. Anyway, more updates coming soon, for now I just wanna race a bit. CHEERS!
