Excellent Rob!I really don't get why so few are concerned about where their screens in regards to proper FoV. I'm like you. I want it to look like I'm sitting behind the wheel of the car in the cockpit. Love what your doing. Thanks for sharing.
Ohh, had to come back and edit. If you want to COMPLETELY eliminate play in your steering, please, please consider https://www.racesims.uk/ It is absolutely wonderful. It will reduce the length of your steering 'column' because of eliminating unnecessary locking nut / swelling rubber but I doubt you will find it a problem. what it looks like
Looked through my photos. Here is a Porsche 911Excellent Rob!
i thought of putting the screens behind the base, but now that I noticed your comment about the shaft thingy, I think our DD base is too huge. Maybe you could provide an image of your setup in a Porsche GT3 please? Or some other GT3 car.
But super nice idea with shortening the shaft. love those crafted DIY stuff.
My SRM adapter for the CC wheel is bringing even more lenght and that’s why I could go in front of the the base.
i might switch the screens 180 degrees for a smaller bezel.
I have the Apex stand, use it with a Fanatec GT DD Pro (8Nm) and it is steady as a rock.I would need a foldable station that takes up as little space as possible. ideas? a thousand thanks

Thx! good to know it does not work in Sport mode, but at least in online lobbies.The paddles will work regardless. The sequential mode is to quickly set your shifter from H pattern to sequential. As far as getting one I would say its nice and adds a little to the immersion. I think it is faster and a clutch pedal would be needed. Also the shifter and clutch won’t work in sport mode but do work for online lobbies.
Maybe my question was not really clear, it was not a question if either pedals or shifter, I consider just getting both :-)@jenson86 If you are going for lap times, new pedals. Hands down. Take this advice from a person who just bought some Sprints. Wish I had bought them earlier. If I was to rebuild or start over, proper peddles would be more of a priority than a DD wheel, shifter, monitor, or even a rig. This advice is coming from the PC side of sim racing. You may receive more input in the GT7 thread. I do not have any direct knowledge of your stand, (had a Fanatec stand with T300 in the past), however the thought of wrestling a DD wheel on ANY stand is pushing the limit of stability well into the red zone.
If you like a brake pedal with a quite short travel (about 40mm when BRF is set to MAX and you have to apply 60kg pressure), get the CSL Load cell kit.I am more interested if this load cell brake of Fanatec would be enough or if the ClubSport Pedals V3 are worth the extra money? From what I saw on youtube the clutch of the V3 is much better and the distance of travel is a bit more, while the CSL load cell you can barely press it in.
You're welcome. No , i don't use this rig actually but i've sent a mail to the guy if he have the tube's dimensions . I'm 60 years old now , still playing like a kid , i think i can sit in this rig .... not sure about how to step out...@praiano63 great idea for an F1 position. Do you use this? A young man's rig to fit into.
Old name from long ago. GT5 GT6. Recently cleaned out paper files and notes next to my rig. Smiles upon my face as I looked at all the tunes with your name. Hope all is well. Thanks again for improving my sim racing.
