    my new apartment doesn't have any room for a table, so i need something to attach a racing wheel to.

    i was looking at this one:

    wheelstandpro.com, $149

    fanatec.com (makers of ridiculous "porche racing wheels") $130 + $20 adapter.

    these are hella expensive. is there something better you use?

    the one thing i like about it is the shifter mount and wheel mount can be reconfigured for a flight sim and the seat can decline for comfortable gaming when you aren't playing racing games

    bucket seats are nice and all but i wouldn't want to sit in one for several hours if i didn't have to

    :werd: Looks really versatile. Might have to pick one of those up eventually, having a cockpit is long overdue.

    I'm already pushing my luck heh. I may pick up a rennsport wheel stand though unless there's a cheap HEAVY alternative.

    I got that chair and a desk

    too bad its not facing my tv

    I had a pretty cool wheel stand made out of wood that would fold up and also was long enough for 2 wheels to fit on. Too bad I threw it away when I moved.
