    It’s a great wheel, you wouldn’t be disappointed. And yes Sir, I do mean the framework, this is the one I built. :)

    Or you could build a simple one like this and just pull it up to the couch. :)

    I have a GT Omega stand also on my wish list. I've got more money than time to build a rig. Either way, I am only looking at a wheel/pedal setup for consistency. I've seen several videos plus considered some of the times we've posted that basically reinforce the idea that the setup doesn't make you dramatically faster, just more consistent. Most of you have seen my replays & how the car or steering indicator twitches a little even when I'm on the straights.

    i'm on the G29 set up as well.. but on my second stand! The first stand was a basic steel frame kind - prob around £80 area.. it lasted about 8 months and i snapped it clean whilst hard braking at Mulsanne repeatedly in the LMP1 when it was on the dailies one time :lol: Have you tried completing a lap with a steering wheel in mid air? :crazy:

    I have no time / tools / skill level to be building stuff myself, so i then ordered the GT Omega stand.. much better, but i just couldn't get the right seat position at first compared to the old - i don't have a gaming chair, i use a plastic bucket style seat from the kitchen :indiff: but it does the job nicely for now.

    Found this website though for the bucket list :cheers::crazy:

    I just saw some of a thread with NevilleNobody getting his first wheel & having to go through a transition. I wouldn't have figured it to be too difficult. I understand synchronizing the hardware to each game, but it is something I'll have to keep in mind if I make the leap.

    The problem with all these wheel setups is, how upgradeable is the hardware? You spend all that money on a wheel and pedals, for a console with a limited life. When the next title comes out and it's on PS5, does your fancy wheel then become an expensive paper weight?

    That's when you switch to PC and rarely look back.

    If such a car was in the game, I'd burn it.

    The T300 RS is set up for both PS3 & 4, so it has backward compatibility & I've got some driving games. And honestly, as of right now, we won't know 100% if our current hardware would transition to the PS5. Many entities will likely attempt to keep things compatible.

    You could always get a drive hub for the ps5 when it comes out.

    I'm about this close (-) to saying "**** it" & pulling the trigger.

    You can buy adapters that allow wheels to be used with any console, that’s what I did when I first got GT Sport. I bought a DriveHub adapter that allowed me to use my old DFGT(PS3 Wheel) on my PS4, but it also allows you to use it on pretty much any console. It tricks the console it’s plugged in to that the wheel is one that is compatible with it. :)


    If you do, I’d be more than happy work with you as much as I can to help speed up your adjustment period. :)

    Practically any day during the week, usually after 4 pm Central time. Until it all arrives, I need to take Renault out for a spin.

    Finally checked the reply. I've got the full race.

    I've tried to share it twice and its failed both times. Its 200 odd Megabytes. I wouldn't think file size would be a problem.
