Just cos I can, heres some pictures of my current Semi-temporary rig. Would be interested to see what you other guys use.

 

Mine is a custom Wooden rig built by myself and my father, roughly shaped like and F1 car. haha. It has a height adjustable 'dashboard' to raise and lower the steering wheel. The seat is a drivers seat from a VS Commodore (which I bought as I also have a VS Commodore as my daily driver, comfy enough seats) I am going to reverse mount the pedals as soon as my 1 year warranty on the G27 expires, then finish the paint job and add some decals to finish it off. But it's nearly always a work in progress.

 

I have drawn up plans to build my own triple monitor mount, so that I can ditch the big wooden shelf, that makes the two edge monitors droop a bit. Will also be moving this PC onto the rig permanantly when I buy my new Ivy Bridge PC in a few weeks. Which will be great, not having to re-arrange my whole room when I don't want to place racing games.

Nice cockpit fallen, I don't have the skills, tools or anything else to build a cockpit, so I bought a Next Level Racing GTxtreme:

Using a Fanatec CSR Wheel and CSR Elite Pedals, no shifter installed atm, on the lookout for a G25/G27 shifter.

 

 

 

Doesn't have a PC set up on it, so I play mostly GT5 on PS3 and Forza 4 on 360.

Make a cockpit and sell it. If Pagnian imports can sell a next level racing gtxtreme for $560, I'm sure you could come up with something to sell on ebay for a couple of hundred.

even still its going to weigh a fair bit, my first one weighs like 50 ish kg thats why i put it on castors.

 

hhhmmmm

The guys with "extreme" setups is still minimal, but expanding haha

 

I don't have enough space in my room to have the kind of setup, but I'm reasonably happy with the way mine is. Just gotta stop that vibrating HDD :-/

Having a cool setup doesn't automatically make you faster etither. :p

True haha. As for practicing, I don't practice anymore. See no point after my issues in GP1, and the fact that I have better things to do :-P
