Gaming Setups

I constructed this racing cockpit tonight. Total cost was $21 in supplies. I started by measuring all the dimensions from my drivers seat so that I had references when cutting the wood. Things came out pretty well and I feel like im sitting in my car while play LFS and Gran Turismo. The seat is fully adjustable forward, backward etc.


I have never in my life built anything wood related..so if you are a trained carpenter.... sorry if I jacked up your trade. I do have hours of Bob Villa and Chuck Norris video/movies under my belt. I watched them make things out of wood a few times.

total time from start to getting back to my room roughly 4 hours

I tested the setup out and it drives very well. I will brace it with some L brackets... It's pretty solid without them but I just want extra bracing because I have the force feedback on 10. Tomorrow I will Fab up a Shifter mount.

If you want to build your own, I have all of the measurements.
