    I don't have any really nice "tidy" shots of the rig, but I can provide two pics from one of our annual "Race of Champions" LAN's.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    All self built from 2"x2", mdf and some bits and bobs like Wheels in the front to move it around. I'm using a chaepo FK seat, anctually rather comfortable surprisingly. Also some button panels using a butchered srw-s1 and random buttons (which are being replaced as they are actually the templates turned permanent) and of course some "sponsors"!

    Samsung 22 LCD SMBX 2235.

    I use a Wheelstandpro for the G27 wheel and pedals (very good and affordable stand).

    I bought a seat from a Peugeot 206 CC in a dump yard for 50 € in pristine condition, I mounted it on a 30 cm high wood stand on it's rails.
    It doubles as my computer chair. The seat has no connection to the wheel stand and needs none in my case.

    I am very satisfied with this low cost solution.

    Cheers.

    Thanks man, and likewise! Your build is one i keep going back to and read through now and then.

    The button boxes are being rebuilt at the moment to more traditional ones (double sets, doing it team standard ;) )

    Your centre monitor appears bigger than the sides. 24"x27"x24"? How have you connected the 3 sizes to the graphics card to accommodate the different sizes?

    I've been wondering for a while.. How do you guys cope with different wheels on your rig? For example a formula wheel or a 330 sparco one, the latter one will obscure most of your vision if you've set up your rig well for the formula wheel. If the other way around, it will tend to feel like you're a lorry driver with a formula style wheel... How do you do it? :)

    I'm in definite in need of one, and the space to accommodate it.....

    I can see that they are not fully aligned at the tops, but the cockpit edges are? My question was not about the alignment, but the getting them to operate together to form 3x view? Type of cable connections, single graphics card, dual cards, any additional software etc.?

    My humble begining in my quest to stop the pedals moving lol. 2006

    View attachment 15153

    And back in August this year I moved house which resulted in me getting a spare room, so lots of scope for upgrades and improvements.
