Racing Rigs - Share Yours!

Recommended Posts

A recent TV upgrade in the house left me with a spare 42" JVC so I am using that at the moment but seeing the peripherals on your setup has made me think about a triple monitor rig. Maybe after the racing seat..........

I would advise to buy 3 matching screens if you do, just for compatibility sake. I took a chance due to the price of the side monitors, but it could have backfired.

Yep, thats the app i use too. I have a galaxy s6 behind my wheel with f1 steering wheel information on it, and the tablet to my left shows car damage and tire wear info. Saves me having to scroll through the mfd all the time to check on things.

Works in every f1 game going back to f1 2013, dirt games, forza, euro truck sim, And more. Its a great app!

@Rango did you build that yourself? Is there a copy of it in the Community section?

I did and there should have been but doesn't look like I've uploaded it. Have done now. It will be called F1 2020 v2 👍🏻 (once it's been approved)

@Lurtz The Playseat F1 you are thinking about has some flex in the central column with some of the more powerful belt driven wheel bases - a small amount but none the less some flex. The better option (IMHO) is the Playseat F1 Ultimate - no central upright that you need to wrap your legs around - and no flex especially if you want to up upgrade in the future to a 'Direct Drive' wheel base - in other words it's future proof if you can afford it. Also it may impress your wife even more if you put if in your trendy lounge like Valtteri below- no more locked away in the spare room for hours on end - it's a great talking feature for your lounge (only joking!)

@HamishOK - I'll probably go the extra £100 and go for the PRO F1 but £2299 for the Ultimate is a step too far for me. Several steps probably! 😄

And that probably IS Valtteri's spare room!!!

Unless you want to invest to a direct drive wheel, which is also very expensive, I think F1 Playseat is a better choice. Consider at least twice the price (and this not cheap) compared to a classic fob wheel with a F1 Playseat.

No reason to be @Rango. Just a couple of days after I got it all set up, Patch 1.08 came out and crashed the game. Until CM come up with a fix for me it is just an expensive piece of floor art!!!
