    Hi everyone
    I been playing racing games since I was a teen with early GT series games

    I been on and off using and learning about sim racing with a driving force GT I have a mid range PC a PS4 and PS3. I play forza 7 just with a controller because it is impossible to get my wheel to work with it. Project cars 2 GT5&6 F1 2012 and 2017 I want to get into GT Sport, iracing maybe rfactor 2 I mostly like driving modern race cars with high down-force like prototypes, F1 mid 2000's to current and Indy cars

    I don't have a set budget ,but I don't think I will be going with a OSW type or custom setup
    I been looking at a few different setups watching lots and lots of reviews and compression my concussion between.

    TS300 RS with better pedals later however there's limits to what I can use on the PS4 here or CS Elite set where cost could be almost equal if I don't want a clutch and I could upgrade later if I wanted the CS pedals both sets you can get different rims if I prefer later.

    any advise,and think you everyone.

    You really need to state a budget if you want help on this.

    Check out : https://www.gtomegaracing.com/gt-om...ega-pro-racing-simulator-cockpit/pro-cockpits
    I actually have the Art version, but if I was buying again from this company,
    I'd buy the Pro version instead, as it looks a bit stronger.
    After buying my TS-PC wheel, I had to strengthen my Art cockpit with two square section tubes to stop it flexing so much, now I think I could actually use a DD wheel in it, it doesn't flex at all now.
    To put it together, all you need is a few wrenches, a few allen keys, ( which all come supplied ), and some patience. There are also you tube videos showing how to put it together. And they're well under your budget too :D

    1k is a very healthy budget. I would get something from SimLab offering and be done with it.

    Agree, get something bullet proof and you will never need to update it again
