Setting up a sim racing rig on a budget

I’ve just started off on my journey of setting up a sim racing rig. It’s something that’s been on the bucket list for a while but when I saw some discounts on Amazon I finally jumped in.

I’m a big GT Sport and F1 2018 PlayStation fan and the first thing for me to do was look for a wheel and pedal combo that would work with a PlayStation. I ended up getting the Logitech G29 set for £179.

Now this image isn’t the full setup but even with this temp one I’m very impressed with the quality of the Logitech. The wheel is stitched leather and very comfortable to use. It took me a while to map the buttons to how I want them in F1 but it’s amazing being able to quickly change fuel setting or enable DRS straight with one adjustment on the wheel.

The pedals are also well built and heavy but without the full rig they do slide around a bit.

Next up is the GT OMEGA steering wheel stand. This is yet to ship but the plan is to setup and then I can fold away when I’m not using it.

I’ll update this post once I have it done and setup.
