And now the station itself, which I made with wood and reinforcing steel brackets an old coffee table that I used before, always with the Logitech G27, the seat is a Sparco Evo L, while the 3 monitors are AOC E2461F

In fact to be honest I also made a sequential gearbox, soon put the photos that too. What do you think?
PS: I hope not to have the wrong section

This is a hand brake, and springs belong to a rc 1/10
For the angle I tried with a view more closed, but depends on the game, now I'm playing to Assetto Corse and WRC4 and frankly I fell good :D

This morning came the quick release

Will go along with a steering wheel OMP 330mm that is coming to me, I must say that sparco no exceptions, an excellent quality, now I just have to build me an adapter to mount it on the G27, then it will take at least one more for a future steering wheel

Anyway I recorded this little video test, to make you see how it goes, what do you think?? the quality is not the best, the next I want to turn a gopro :p

Nice work dedraro,

I like your mods, and the whole build. I am quite interested to see how you modded the G27 shifter to be sequential? Looking forward to more pics mate.

Cheers, AussieStig

Thanks for the compliments :D
The shifter I made from an old one of the G25, and I duplicated the buttons on the steering wheel and connected two small switches such as those of the paddles, soon put the proceedings.

The Logitech shifter switches between H and Sequential modes by holding it down while you turn the large switch in the centre. Doesn't need to be modded. I use mine mainly in Sequential mode.

Unfortunately so is the g27 has the very useful option that had the g25, the sequential gearbox :S

This morning came the OMP steering wheel, I must say that good quality but not perfect.

Assembled with the quick release, now I just have to create an adapter to mount it on the G27, unfortunately, the screws of the steering wheel were too short I had to use them, but soon change.

Meanwhile this morning I had already shot this little video with the Lotus 49 at Monza in 1966, what do you think?
