    Awesome setup Madison. Doesn't really matter how pretty it looks, just how fast and consistent your laps are right? :tup:

    Yeah, That's what I think too. It's in its own little room(don't get many distractions) and it barely cost anything. Went and got a spare TV sitting around and picked up a DFGT for $130AUD. Steel frame was made at my dad's work. Surround sound was $90. A fairly cheap setup. It's fine for me as I can produce really fast laps on it.

    You should of seen my setup before that with the DFGT mounted on a skateboard sitting on my knees. I'll try and get a pic of that up, you'll probably laugh.

    EDIT: Here's two more.

    ^setup before I had the steel frame, I still managed to set good times like that. I did my qualifier with that setup. Much easier to be consistent now though.

    Nice setup mad;) Mine is a bit different in that I simply have a chair and a small study table, and I place an LCD monitor on the edge of the table, meaning I am quite close to the screen, 1.25 metres away, I use a small office chair. I'll try and post some pics but it may take a while.

    Thanks, it would be great to see your setup. It shows that you don't need a big, expensive cockpit to be fast or even a G25.

    Well i just feel silly now - how you can you be so quick sitting on a swivel chair with wheels on it !
    Must be that young quick mind of yours - :)

    The swivel chair doesn't move at all when i'm driving. The carpet keeps the wheels still. So the chair moving isn't a problem. I'd love a fancy cockpit(Gamerscockpit or playseat) but this setup is fine for me.

    EDIT: I will save for a plasma screen to go in there one day.

    This is my setup. Sony Brevia 32", DF GT wheel, comfy chair, DIY'd table.
    Gotta get rid of those cables one day ... :)

    When I win the lottery I'll buy a playseat and a bigger screen and get my setup out of the living room to stop annoying my wife and kid :cool:

    I have a 26 inch vizio lcdtv, 80 GB PS3, Sony Gamemixer 600w stereo, and a Dualshock sixaxis controller... no racing seat yet, but it would be nice to have one before GT5 comes out!

    This is where the magic happens. My setup is nothing special, but it gets the job done.

    Also, I'm well aware that my chair is falling apart.

    My iMac doesn't have a video input, but from what I've read it's possible with an adaptor of sorts. I wouldn't really bother though, I like to be able to talk on MSN and surf the web while I'm playing on my PS3.

    Comfy chair from IKEA no less...


    I sit in one as well when racing.

    I have no pictures but my setup apart from the chair is a DFGT mounted on a sligtly modified coffeetable (also from IKEA (Hey what can I say, I'm swedish)) I use a Panasonic projector and a 90" screen coupled with a surround system with a Marantz A/V-receiver and a Dynaudio/Mordaunt Short speaker combo and a Audio Pro subwoofer.

    I'm planning to get something sturdier to mount the wheel on but can't decide between a Wheelstand Pro or a Fanatec stand.

    Not the greatest setup out there,but for now until i upgrade to the vision racer,it,ll do for me.I now have two world records and 2 2NDS and a 4th place in the F1 2007 Timetrial.So for me i,d say a bit betterer than a pad.this is a permanent setup,as the extension at the back of our house is all mine.http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/4491/003zb.jpg.........
