Teamsousa's Rig (a.k.a Maximus Decimus Meridius)


IMG_3460.jpg

The rig is a GTRevolution, this is a work in progress. The rig is setup for racing, FPS gaming and general computer use. I am not a big fan of connecting and disconnecting components so the rig is modified to have everything accessible no matter what I am playing. Future plans are too integrate a hotas (flying controls) for flying sims.

B-RAD (DocSlap) Racing Rig


20150910_001053.jpg

Triple screen setup with AOC E2752VH

Base is built out of 3/4" plywood, 2x6, and 4x6 construction. Then I carpeted the top and sides. Also built a monitor table top that the triple screen stand sits on.
The seat is a PlaySeat Evolution Black. I added the rail kit to it as well as the shifter plate.
My G910 Orion Spark keyboard and G500 mouse sit on a Obutto swivel keyboard tray. The mounted the keyboard tray to a 2x4. That 2x4 is mounted to the side of my chair base.
5.1 surround speakers are installed. The rears are attached to a piece of alumenium the double sided stronge tape. I used a U bolt to mount the aluminum bar to my PlaySeat chair through the holes at the top.

RolandKSP's Rig


20161010_134231.jpg

This is my Rig as of October 2016. I just rebuilt the PC and display setup last month. I went with a 40" 4k display pushed by an i7-6700k and GTX 1080.

One of my favorite parts of this rig is the "real" race car engine start button I converted to use with the pc. I mounted this below the button box. The toggle switch turns on the light and makes the button active and the start button can be mapped like any other.

F1_Racer68's Rig


Triples_right.jpg

This album shows the continuous and ongoing evolution of my sim racing rig. What started as a simple wheel stand made of leftover scraps of wood has evolved into a full blown cockpit (also made of leftover scraps of wood).

From a simple wheel stand, it has evolved to a full cockpit with "center console" for shifter and button box, triple screens and inverted G27 pedals. As my hardware continue to evolve, so does my rig. The mods to wheel, pedals, etc ensure that it will never be truly "finished".

MOD #1 larger surface for controls36 viewsFirst MOD was to add a larger surface to support the G13 gameboard, keyboard and mouse. The surface is a custom cut piece of wood that was painted red to match the seat.

Stage 4: The Full Racing Cockpit49 viewsRight side, showing full detail of the console and foot box. Note the storage box in the console for my tuning guides and notebooks as well as the inverted pedals. The red "ignition switch" is actually used to turn off the wheel. It prevents the wheel from receiving power while the PS3/PC are powered off.

The Buttkicker20 viewsOriginally, the Buttkicker mount that came with my chair was mounted to the bottom frame. Pretty much 180 degrees from where it is now. I had to turn it up so high that it was clipping and I could still barely feel it. I removed the mount and bolted it right to the bottom of the seat and it's been great. I was worried about drilling the mounting holes directly into the seat tub but nothing has come loose or cracked since.Oct 10, 2016

The Chair18 viewsThe seat is an rSeat EVO 1. I like that I can move this pretty easy and it can hug the wall pretty tight. In it's current position, it's permanent but before this I had to drag it in front of the TV and put it away often. The only modifications I made other than the Buttkicker mount was drilling for the Fanatec hardware. The Evo 1 came in two flavors and mine was the logitech one. Nothing a drill couldn't fix.Oct 10, 2016

The Wheel22 viewsI started my sim racing with the G27 and moved in to the Fanatec Clubsport set. There is the v2 base, the v3 pedals w/dampner acc, the v1.5 shifter (without seq), and the BMW rim. Not much to say about that. I upgraded because I didn't like the ffb dead spot in the center on the G27 and now with the Fanatec, it's gone.Oct 10, 2016

The Displays20 viewsFor the main display I'm using a VIZIO 40" 4k screen. At the corners I have an 8" windows tablet and a 7" standard monitor. Both of these are running z1 Dashboard. I've tried just about all of the second screen/telemetry apps and z1 is hands down my favorite. It has more screens than any other I tried and it works with pretty much every modern sim.

Next to that is a laptop running pcars dash.
