SimCockpit-Setup
#1
Question for yall...  I have only been in the Sim Racing world for a month if that.  I came from a long Gran Turismo and some Forza History.  I have played and have countless hours in Gran Turismo to GT Sport.  I think i still have all the game discs somewhere around here.... Wish I could make the Pennsoil R33/34... loved that car... Anyway, offtopic in my own thread!

How do you guys determine your wheel height in relation to where youre sitting?  I know IRL the F1 guys have it almost at their head (but they are pretty much laying down, and the NASCAR guys have it about chest height.   What do you all have yours set at?

I personally like my lower.

Good question !
I have mine the same as my road car (Ford focus)
I like the familiarity and it's easy to get in and out of.

I don't know why anyone would choose to sim in an F1 setup, as they sit like that because it is a constraint of the car's ultra-design and has almost zero to do with driver comfort (other than custom molded seats). GT posture gives you more relaxed yet strong control over the wheel by having it within easy reach of your arms.

I can't remember how I stumbled across this as I don't own any Ricmotec equipment, but when I was building my rig, I used it to help me figure out where everything was going to go:

Thanks for the responses! I have been adjusting mine like crazy. I have a cheap stand for wheel/pedals, not a true cockpit, it only adjusts up and down but it works well. I wish i could adjust the tilt. I am sure i could fandangle something until i figure out life and build an actual rig either by wood or PVC... Im going to check out that link now and see if it helps Big Grin ...

Is there any servers that run 24/7 that we can "hangout" in and b/s in or team up and work on skills?

EDIT::

I looked at that link... man I got work ahead of me. I sit almost upright with a 23" monitor right in my face lol. Maybe that is my issue.. I have a computer chair, I could recline that back and maybe put the far end of my stand on "blocks" so it tilts forward some... Hmm. I got some working to do!
