        Hahaha, this is awesome, I love the inclusion in your garage!

        []Matt Heeley

        It’s funny but my kids probably play it more than me. I have a 6 year old who can catch oversteer in the sim like a natural. And a 5 year old who is starting to not suck at it. Both can barely see over the wheel to play 😂

        []Robert Sixto

        That's awesome!

        This is pretty awesome. What size is your display?

        []Matt Heeley

        I have a 50” Toshiba mounted on the basement wall. And an inexpensive Onkyo 5.1 system for all the cool vroom-vroom noises 😁

        Sick! Playing Forza 7 on this?

        []Matt Heeley

        Unfortunately, no. I have a ps4, so it's Project Cars and Assetto Corsa for me. Forza is seriously the only reason i wish i had an XBone. I just can't bring myself to buy it just for that. AC has a really decent FD Rx7 in the Japanese pack. The tuner version even has a nice braap at idle!

        Ha, awesome. I typically like having all the major consoles, but this time around I went with Xbox One because of all the additional features, like being able to control cable TV/Netflix/Amazon/etc. through it. Last generation, I bought a PS3 just to play Call of Duty with some co-workers and for Gran Turismo 5. I've heard GT 6 and the one that just came out haven't been as good, but I've been enjoying Forza 7 big time. Again, sweet rig, man. You could probably sell that setup on Etsy, or something.

        I had thought about it. Some rigs are ridiculously expensive and not as rigid as mine turned out to be. With some alteration to make it perfect, it's something that could be produced easily in a jig, to be honest. I'd have to sell it with a spec seat though for that to work. One thing I like is that it's aluminium. Doesn't weigh a ton, and you can pick it up and move it easily with one person even with the chair and wheel still attached. All the other ones I've seen are steel, unless you build them with extruded aluminum channel, which is stupid expensive.
