Home made racing rig

Just an FYI i am NOT a full on driving sim enthusiast i enjoy building things, this was a fun little project which i will use when i feel like playing some racing games like asseto corsa, the crew 2, and forza 4 when that releases in October. It cost me £17 to put this rig together in one afternoon (today).

It started out with an idea from getting a sore back from using the G29 on the table, it felt odd and i couldnt really concentrate.

The chair im using is a racing style office chair, nothing major. I just took the spinny legs off and bolted it down to the base through the bottom.

After i had the idea, i drew a mock up on paper


Then after i had the general idea i went and designed it on Sketchup design software (which is amazing imo)
Everything was to scale, and i knew what was going where.

And here we have it finished product, playing asseto corsa on my 4K TV.


Eventually i am planning on getting rails put in under the seat, because at the moment the seat is bolted down and doesn't move, but ive got the measurements right for my legs.

Thanks for looking

Consider me impressed. That is a very good attempt at a home made racing rig.
When you do the rails, consider the same for steering post to allow angles. That is something I dont think most retail ones even have.

I have sat in a few playseats and one thing I always would have liked to see is to make the steering column adjustable on the Y axis. The red bull seat has it, but that is a ridiculous price to charge.

Further note. Now you have a setup, you have to compete with us in the Project Cars monthly challenges! We need more participants.

Thanks very much
Best thing about this is that as i play ill learn what needs changing. Its cheap and easily replaceable.

Ive been trying to figure out a locking system for the Y axis actually. With a long bolt and a wooden gear. Im still playing around with ideas though.

Most definitely up for the project cars. Thanks for the invite 😁 im assuming its PC2?

PC 1 at the moment but I think Wraith is looking into moving the challenges to PC2.

My apologies guys I know I've been a touch slow off the line this month but I've been bogged down with work. I shall get you guys a new challenge live today we are indeed looking at going for a PCars2 challenge soon and also a punishing Assetto Corsa time trial too.
