Hi all from another Aussie on the forums in Perth. I've been browsing a little while now, since I got a set of the Samsung Odyssey VR goggles. After a bit of research, I then ordered the Thrustmaster T300 GT RS set , which led me to wanting g to build a cockpit (I've already built a number of flight Sim cockpits). I looked at the designs and although they were good, but I wanted something different, I thought it had to at least look similar to a car cockpit. So I used our Touring cars (Bathurst 1000 racing) as my "style" I also just happen to have a CNC with Aspire software in my garage so i started to design.... I styled the front to look like a touring car, (falcon or commodore) with a southern cross logo on the front with the seat going to have the HDT lion and helmet. (I haven't built the seat yet), I decided on the logo because its a good design and one I can do on my CNC. I made a few mistakes so far which I fixed some last night, moving the wheel back 200mm. This is a prototype I may sell it and make another. Thoughts and suggestions are welcome. The third image is my being impatient and testing before I put a seat in, glad I did as the wheel was too far back (more laid back like an F1.) I wanted more upright. I sat a few friends down with the CAR goggles on and I think the screams said it all.(from the ladies), the guy who tried (Mitch 20) said "Wooooow, this is the shit, love it" So this weekend I move it to the downstairs lounge before the wife realises, and work out a good way of covering it when not in use. I think getting everyone to try it also it to the wife.... For once I have a degree of WAF.
