What did you do for a stand? I can't get away with a full seat setup, so have been looking into a stand to use with a couch/recliner seat.
I really like the Thrustmaster TS-PC wheel base! My twin brother has a Logitech G920, and there is no comparison...Don't get me wrong, I like the G920 for its' ergonomics, but my TM is on a totally different level...#1
. my wheel base is WAYYYY more powerful, and not a kids toy. It actually competes with Fanatec Elite wheel bases, even their club sport (although the Fanatec wheel base is even smoother than my TS-PC). The Logitech G920 is gear driven, so it feels pretty 'gritty' which I don't like.
2. TS-PC racer wheel base can except different wheels...Logitech cannot (unless you seriously mod it). That is why it was possible for me to take off the stock F1 rim, and get the 599xx Alcantara wheel.
GoZags13 , it really depends on how serious you want to get, and to be honest most console-based racing sims 'dumb down' their force feedback features, which is a shame, imo.
You want to get a setup that is designed for the xbox....(although, there is an $80 device that can convert just about any wheel to your platform...forgot the name, but it's like a universal hub that adapts different brands/models to work with all platforms). PS...Do not get the TS-PC Racer, as it is for PC only! The Thrustmaster T300 would be a great choice, but make sure, whatever wheel you get, that it's fully compatible with the XBOX...if it's not, then there will be lots of headaches getting it to work properly, and dialed in. I hope that helps.... ABOUT THE RIG....I am currently building one myself, with really unique mods...my racing seat has a lawn mower tractor hood thats been pimped out
with graphics and lighting.
