Hey BLOKE,

Thats a nice rig.

I've moved the thread to the General/Gaming Hardware forum, with other similar stuff about sim rigs.

You'll find pics of a few different rigs posted around the place.

Thanks mate. Just saw your rig and as mentioned in the thread thinking of removing mine to avoid embarrassment. LOL

I am looking at upgrading mine to Obutto Ozone, seems like exactly what I need.

Mate, how did you go about the shifter mounts? What did you use etc as the design Fanatec done for them...well lets say leaves you wishing for better.

Thats all I need in life. (except wife and kids I guess)


I do like the bungie, what sort of pedals are they?

Nice set up mate.! The pedals are the Fanatec CSR Elite. Bungie cords are just the temp solition, didnt get the time to hard mount them as yet and whats not helping is the fact that that the cords are working surprisingly well. As mentioned before, I am going to be upgrading to Obutto rig in the next month or two at latest and will be selling the current rig, so probably better to leave it without holes.

Ive created two shifter posts, the squential sits very close to the wheel while the H patten sits lower.

Thanks again. I've heard of the OButto, but haven't seen one. Are you buying in OZ or OS?

I mounted my sequential shifter on a fabricated aluminium bracket that is bolted to the wheel base plate. My H pattern is attached to the seat base using an rhs bracket. I used 6mm x 80mm furniture bolts to attach the shifters to the brackets with some packing sleeves to make them a neat fit in the shifter body.

I'm thinking about making new shifter mounts to simplify switching between sequential and H pattern. I'll probably end up with different brackets for each but using a common mounting point on the wheel base plate.

Hey RU, nice set up, love the stubbie holder. I just sit my beer next to the rig at this stage.
