Koch: How often are you Loeb, when you sit there?
Great showings, inspiring, costly, funny by some, minimalist, but always personal.
Here comes mine:
Thrustmaster R500RS with H-shifter and AMD FX 8320@4400 mhz, Nvidia GTX770 SLI , ASUS 27" 144hz monitor and other stuff.
And off course my pride and joy, with extra racing stripes:
Very often, 670 kg/no power steering and a lot noise.
this is for me... screen 24" FHD/60HZ, and G27
Great! Except the seat, you need a racing seat!
The Seat??? hummmmm..... oh yes !!! as soon
I don't have any plans unfortunately - I did try working on some but they proved to be quite challenging to put together. I may well give it another shot at some point though. This will be after my current project is complete which is now on hold due to the cold weather sadly.
If you haven't seen the build log and are interested in seeing more (100s of posts and pictures for the entire build and also covers the finishing) it's here:
ok, it's just for fun, my finish is not perfect, may i have to paint him and others sets...
Hola el Mio ...
LOL, "Frankenbuilt" as long as no bones are sticking out somewhere ! Looks like decent craftmanship...
Here`s mine btw :

Do you drive with the in-game wheel displayed like that? It would look better without it. Very nice setup though.
Always arms off, but the wheel... thats depend of the car, there are cars not confortable for me without wheel.
So many unique and interesting rigs. I really enjoy seeing what fellow sim racers use around the world.
to those who posted their pics,Thanks for sharing.
I am trying to build a cockpit, but also for other computer games(rpg, fps etc...) Thought maybe some in here may have some input for me. It seems most cockpits seem Sim racing gaming only.
The two main things I am debating are the seat and what I will use for keyboard and mouse tray/arm/holder. For me these are the most critical, specifically the keyboard and mouse arm since that is what will be used for most games and computing.
For a seat I was looking at this:
Or maybe this
The keyboard and mouse arm is a bit more difficult to find options for. Some of them are ungodly expensive, but I was thinking this would be good:
Keyboard mouse arm
I have never seen one in person so curious as to the stability of it. Obviously for FPS it would need to be. Also wasn't sure if it would be better to have the keyboard and mouse separate for more flexibility.
