  1. Last week
  2. Moved my party canopy over gramps so I have a dryer work space and storage. Also finally organized my tools since I have no garage and need them mobile, got a 5 drawer cart... (there is a 5th its under not opened, I swearz..)
  3. Earlier
  4. I give you, weighing in at 25 lbs. The SVE GT7 19x10 w/ 285/35/19 Firehawk Indy 500 mounted yesterday before the actual race.Charlie approved too!
  5. Late April IRS return led to a very different purchase. I was trying to buy a 1 piece driveshaft from Shaftmasters, and my credit card was denied. I took this as a sign to reevaluate the course of action in my build. A Dr's appointment & $160.00 labs crushed my hopes of a 1 piece along with two $100.00 Wally World trips. But, I did make changing my own oil a reality with a Fumoto valve, low profile jack, & two jack stands also 6 qts. Castrol 5w30w w/ Lucas oil stabilizer. May brought SVE GT7 wheels on sale at LMR which I jumped on.
  6. I know its more than the previous suspension etc. blah blah. just making a general statement. 😃
  7. It is a lot more than just tuning.
  8. They already have a PP ecoboost model, this one is just an upgraded version. Looks like its just more tuning, etc.
  9. Yeah don't even know what I was saying.
  10. I just don't want something permanent, I need the flexibility to move it out of the way when I'm not using them.
  11. Back in my drumming days the bass liked to run away during hard rock/metal songs. We would use bricks, cinderblocks, younger siblings, or guitar amps to keep them in place.
  12. I am pretty sure self tapping screws into the floor will work.... lol
  13. Also if you're not planning on having a dedicated sim rig and are going to be using the computer for other things, make sure you have a desk that can support the desk clamp. I currently am using the keyboard tray on my desk and it's not great. Another thing to consider is the brake pedal that comes with the fanatec csl package requires a lot of force so I'm going to have to fab something to mount it so it won't slide around. This wouldn't be an issue if I had a sim rig because I could just mount it to that, but because I'm just using my desk it's now an issue.
  14. They work fine, just if you buy a more advanced setup expect to spend more time trying to work out the intricacies. My Logitech stuff is 100% plug and play. And it works totally fine. It’s not the best, but it’s plenty enough imo. And if you outgrow it, can always sell it for a descent amount and upgrade. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. So the wheel tech isn't sorted out yet enough to keep up with the software side of these units?I'm going to build a gaming PC just for this usage. I guess more time is needed to allow software and steering wheel to more bond for performance. I've watched some 3D on youtube and am very interested to have a go at this for off track training.
  16. Not sure if I can get excited about an EcoBoost based performance package. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  17. Yeah, the wheel I have is supposed to be a good entry level wheel but I can't get it to calibrate so its basically unusable.
  18. Hopefully we start getting some normal weather soon I have to start stripping the rest of the car down before I send it off to be blasted. On a good note, its in better shape than I originally thought, my body guy is going to take care of getting the whole car in epoxy primary as soon as its done being blasted so we can see what needs what. Even though I am in no way trying to do some sort of concourse resto here, I want the base of the vehicle to be solid regardless so this is one of those expenditures that needs to be done to ensure no surprises down the road. The previous owner did not do anyone any favors with not sealing this after they removed much of the paint so it adds some time to it.
  19. Was going for a Lilith cosplay from Borderlands. Can't post the rest of this series publicly hahahaha!
  20. Yea my buddy with his insane setup has the most insane direct drive iirc fanatec wheel. And he had some issues, but got it sorted. No idea what he had to do. The Logitech shit just works. Which for me was well worth the slightly less good but more reliable setup. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Jesus, yeah don’t blame you for doing that. But even with my basic set up like yours I’m still having software issues that’s not letting me set up the wheel properly.
  22. G920 cuz I don’t need to go down that rabbit hole lol. My friend has s full motion linear actuator setup with load cell pedals etc etc. I didn’t want to end up like that Lololol. I did design and 3d print a 920 shifter mod tho. Works great. If you know anyone with a 920 I’ll happily send the file to en to print. The mod. There is a top piece that goes over to retain it all obviously. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. What wheel do you use? I just got a fanatec setup a couple months ago and still don't have it working right.
