Okay guys and gal, if you use a wheel, why not post your pics of it.

Here's mine: It was designed for tall teenagers and 2 small grandkids.
But I get to use it most LOL. cheers

Mine is pretty simple. 1" x 1/4" alluminum straps bent slightly and bolted to the arms of an old office chair. Under the plywood there are 4 small pieces of channel screwed down for guides to slide it on and off. I have small holes drilled through the wood and allum, and drop nails in to hold it in place.

That is a brilliant design DMH, just the kind of thing I could do for my 16 year old G/son, my daughter wont let him have a rig like mine, she said it wont go with the furniture.

I vote for 3 cards set-up,that is SWEET !!! Very Nice indeed.

When we get back,we are going to go purchase a G27 steering wheel.Craig has an old NHRA legal drag racing seat out of his Roadrunner that we will be using. We have access to 1" square aluminum box tubing to build the framework.Brag , if you don't mind,we are going to steal your keyboard holder idea,that is soooooooo coooool !!!!

I'm soon to become a steering wheel newbie , lol. This ought to be interesting .....

Thanks Chrissy, the post was just to get an idea of how everyone is set-up for racing with a wheel.

I'm working on 2 rigs right now, another for a DFGT and one for a G25.

I'll send you the sketches when I'm finished if you think they would help you.

Once you've got use to the wheel, you will never go back.

I have a picture of a young "lady racer in training" using the seat, she only races Burnout Paradise right now LOL, but I think she may have the talent to join the Ripsters in about 15 years.

I'm doing my part to get more ladies on the team. cheers

Oh yeh, I was renovating the room at the time, but that didnt stop the action.

B J, I was worried about that, but using 1/4 in. Thick alluminum, there is very little bounce to it. The nice thing is the height of the chair can be adjusted and the wheel goes with it. With several holes in the straps, you can adjust the wheel in and out.

I started with a rig made from conduit. Now that was wobbley!

Look at that "SERIOUS" look on RacinAce's face!!! Same look I get when I'm chasing Joker around those "other" tracks.

DMH's rig is a real space saver. I like that bro!!! Very Happy
