woohoo finally scored a ps5 at msrp on the playstation store drop

just bought a gt omega titan cockpit. from the reviews it seems to be a good tradeoff in terms of pricing and flex.

csl dd + stick + load cell pedal are next once they get in stock. time to clear out the guest bedroom and make it a sim room.

just setup this in the main living/lounge to my wife's horror

PC -> 77" LG C1 120Hz G Sync/Freesync
Fanatec GT DD Pro 8Nm + WRC Elite Wheel + CSL Load Kit Pedals
Next Level Racing Motion V3/ GT Track Seat + Rig

they are all good apart from the NLR stuff - the seat is horrible, the motion fun and fake at the same time, the rig is expensive but works as it should, nothing more nothing less.

the Sims
Xbox yet untouched
GT7 - terrible as a sim, but license test is fun as heck
Assetto Corsa - most fun if you just want to drive around, cars that are less powerful and have no aero kit, as HUD with the speed right in the center of the screen, very helpful!

I am not sure how to race anything it seems so i find ACC/iRacing/R Factor 2 a bit too powerful and i have no idea of what speed i'm going, just can't get a sense of speed - i crash a lot! can't they give me a normal car with Cup 2 tires and no Aero kit like an X-Drive M4 for example ... i might crash less ...

but then i turn off every assist there is. maybe i need assist ....

Anyone running Moza Racing equipment?

https://mozaracing.com/

Really nice looking kit. I think it's down between this and Fanatec in my mind.

So I've looked into Moza, from my understanding they are basically ripped off Simagic technology with lesser quality parts and engineering - more prone to premature failure.

Just go Simagic.

This is such a clean setup! Are you only running PS5, or do you have a PC aswell? On Iracing that setup would genuinely be perfect.

Thank you!

I built it mainly for my ps5 and waiting for the VR2 to come out. However I do want to try some pc games with it.

I don't have a gaming rig, but I got an arcade. Does that count?

The rig is near complete!

Down to the final touches for the racing/flight rig. Need to install the shifter but I need to re-drill the holes because they dont line up quite right. I'm also working some ideas to get more travel out of the seat so I can set all the racing stuff farther forward to clear the flight stuff better. Right now my arm touches the flight stick when using the hand brake. The swinging monitor stand worked out great for games that dont support VR.

I don't understand why I need a super cool chair with many features? When choosing an office chair, I pay attention to the comfort and quality of the product. My son recently bought a $2,000 gaming chair, and three days after buying it, he returned it to the store. Of course, furniture should be quality because it can affect my back, but for what so many features? I bought an excellent ergonomic chair for my home office that helps keep my back healthy and moreover looks very stylish. Do you think I'm too old?

There are some absolutely impressive rigs here. My compliments to you.

Here is my humble offering, which evolved rather quickly. I started with a folding cockpit and a PS5 in my living room.





When I learned how impractical folding and storing it would become, I moved it upstairs and bought a new display for it.



Then came the 80/20 rig.



Followed by a PC, a Buttkicker and finally the ultrawide display. I would love triples but I just don't have the space to accommodate that so I think I'm done. Very happy with it.

What size monitor? I have a 34 right now, cant decide if I should go bigger or not.

It's 49", the Samsung Odyssey Neo G9, specifically.

Bigger is almost always better. In close quarter battles, I sometimes make contact (or lose a position because I left TOO much room) all because I still can't see to the sides well enough.

Triples are the way.

I play a lot of Elite Dangerous which only supports up to 34inch in game, but through Nvidia Surround you can run triples. I've seen guys run the 49" and it looks great, so I've been thinking of seeing if there is a way to run a 49" for horizontal and my 34" for vertical above the seat to get that full cockpit feel.

If and when you do, I'd like to see the setup.

nice rig

I see you have the inverted pedals tray from ASR...worth it? I am tempted to get it for my ASR6, but everytime I went to order it previously, it was OOS, I took it as a sign, but I am tempted, lol
