    All you can do is try to get your wheel users to stand out and some might come. That's what happened to our team.

    But you suck ! :lol:

    Look at the free agents thread, open recruit lobbies , join lobbies and ask them to join your team if they are good. A lot of guys are good and in unknown teams, try to get them.

    EH I'm gonna be a while before I am set up with my g27 - moving into my own place Feb1 etc - getting started up at school and **** -

    Oh yeah, not to mention I still suck with the wheel and need to rig up a good cockpit

    What do the current WSG wheel drivers have in terms of "cockpit " ?

    I ma thinking about 2" PVC + passenger seat ( right hand drive ) from the junk yard.


    Ciao

    Nah PVC will just snap if there's too much pressure, and its a pain in the arse to fix, and/Mr make alterations.

    Put my wheel on the same table as my TV and the pedals underneath, and I sit on a standard computer chair with wheels.
    Nothing special its pretty simple and gets the job done, im also really close to the TV.

    x__x snap? That's why I was planning on using the big thick stuff, either that or like some L shaped beams with holes for bolts ( you know, the kind they use to make shelving units etc )

    I didn't like my temporary set up at xmas, I wanna drive a SPORTS CAR not a jeep Xb


    I will consider 2x4's and plywood ( for rigidity ) thanks for raising concern on the PVC idea.

    Ideally a nice right hand drive front clip with no motor would be SICK with a plasma mounted on hood, left seat for the honeys ;]

    I use a tub-type frame as I'm very big at 6 foot 2, so that's the only way it could really be stable. Well with a relatively hard piece of rubber between it and the wall (its beside the wall) so it doesn't move at all!

    Yeah you want your setup to be very stable especially for drifting, so your setup doesn't shake when you fight the wheel.

    I used 2 2x4x96in, If your going to make it out of wood make sure you screw them right (pre-drilled). Also I bought a oak for the top of the table, it wasn't the smartest Idea because its incredibly strong and really hard to put screws in, so I had to pre-drill it aswell. Took me like 10 minutes just to make 4 holes.

    But using oak is a good idea! I used plywood for all except the case I worked from which was 5x3 (huge, I know) them for the top, I used plywood, then bolted a rectangular slab to that to bring the wheel back, (no legroom so no choice), then to that I used 2x1 piece of ash to run under that, and its extra steady, the front of the wheel can rise I couple of mm but hard,mounting can sort that.

    Since understanding is in short supply so far this year, let this be clear:

    If you have a long history of low quality posts, and refuse to listen to countless warnings from the staff, you will eventually find yourself banned. Returning with a new account the same day will see any potential chance of a return, ever, soundly squashed.

    If you have nothing to do but head into other threads for the sole purpose of antagonizing members, you too will find a message from a member of staff in your inbox.

    The Acceptable Use Policy applies to every single member of this website, not just those you have personal grudges with. I recommend a re-read for many of the people in this thread.

    Don't worry about it. Slick is banned so gtp as far as White Smoke goes, I doubt thread attendance matters much anymore.
