    There are many steering wheel stands and cockpit setups out on the market now for the DFP steering wheel. This thread is for those who do not want to build something out of wood and a junkyard bucket seat. The following is a list of links that I have found.

    Stands under $100.00

    The Xlerator Wheel Stand is the best value on the market $89.95. It is inexpensive (compared to most simms). Can be used in you living room on your favorite recliner or sofa. Very stable and functional. Small and storable when not in use. I love my Xlerator Wheel Stand, its awesome!

    Stands $100 - $200.00

    The Redline Gt Racestation is a nice unit stores nicely $119.95. Very adjustable.

    The Virtual Race Chassis

    A bit over US$400 with shipping, but a very solid setup. I've been using one for over two years, first with the MOMO, now with the DFPro. No complaints.

    i said the GTCockpit....that cannot be used with a sofa or a chair....the chair needs to be a car seat, and im trying to find a good cheap one

    from the website FAQ:

    Q. If I decide not to purchase the seat, what seats will work with this unit?
    A.Only Sparco® bottom-mount type seats will work. For more information, please click here

    gay....if a sparco bottom mount seat will work, wont any bottom mount seat work?

    You would think, but I guess it would depend on where the openings are at on the bottom of the seat, in comparision to where the mounts are at on the simulator itself...

    And for those interested, more options for simulators (Lap attachments or full on race sims) can be found here as well.

    Excuse the late response.... :D

    However, I'd opt for the GameFrame or even the Game-Stand from Ash Design before ever going for the Xlerator...IMHO that is but only from the stand-point of more flexible options for use based on seating arrangements as opposed to 'cost'...but that's just me! ;)


    The Xlerator stand is still a good product though, so I'm not saying anything negative about it!

    Thanks!

    It didn't take that long to get all the informaiton together, as I had a pre-existing list I had been working for some time close by which I could reference fairly easy.

    I am in the process of importing a cockpit with a similar design to the Sparco. With mine there is room to put a Monitor directly in-front of the steering wheel. In addition I have added keyboard and mouse stands for those who would like to use it for PC gaming. My target price for the cockpit is $425 including a seat. If you are interested please drop me a PM as my first sample units are arriving next week from which I will be doing product shots and finalizing my orders. Below is a sneak peak of what it looks like :sly: I am a die hard GT4 addict and went into this because I could not find perfect solution on the market. I think you guys are going to like it for the price!

    cheers
