As some of you might know I've been using a gamepad for GPL untill now. It has served me really well so far.
But after spending so much time squeezing a trigger with my right finger (throttle) it is starting to become quite painful.
I've had plans to buy a sim rig for a long time, but I feel now is a good time to ditch my gamepad and start looking into a proper setup. (And also save my fingers!)

First item on my list is a proper seat/rig, since I don't have anywhere stable to put wheels and pedals on at the moment. I want to go for a proper mounting rig right away.
I've got mt eyes on someting like the Next Level F1GT.
As a first wheel I can buy a used G25 of a friend of mine and otherwise I still have a cheap Trustmaster T80 somewhere laying around at my brother's house.

I was wondering if any of you have some more advice when setting up a wheel and rig for the first time? I'm really curious about the setups that are been used by everyone here.

I made my own wheel/pedals mount and use a comfy swivel chair that can recline for a laid back driving position freuen

I recently got a new wheel. Here is my experience

How did you make that mount yourself? I've seen people use things like wood or pvc tubing but it doesn't seem to be very easy to make to me. (I also don't have the tools for that)

The T300 looks like a good wheel, but I wonder how much it's different from the T500RS. The latter one is the wheel/pedal set I was thinking of as future upgrade after using the G25 for a while.

Yes mine is wood painted black. Not the prettiest thing but does the job.

Loving the wheel at the moment, but the pedals that came with the T300 were rubbish so I used my G25 pedals.


Stefan has a T500 and says the pedals in that bundle are good. The T500 wheel looks like it has a few more buttons if you need them.

Do the T300/T500 have a noticable deadzone in the middle like the G25/G27 or similair wheels? It's the one thing that always annoyed me whenever I had a chance to play with one of those.

I had a dead zone on my G25. I have not noticed it on the T300.

The TM wheels use belts as opposed to gears on the G25.
The T300 does feel more positive imo.... and far less noisy in use.

Hi Erik

I use a sports passenger chair from a scrapheap car freuen (2e one)
Mounted it om a wooden frame and customized it time after time to fit with my BRD 7Speed paddles.
Now its sits better then my family car.
My G25 is fixed mounted on my desk and the seat stands for it.

Good luck, thanks for asking!

Thanks for the responses, I think that G25 will be a decent wheel to start with since both of you seem to have used it without much problems.

I've decided to go for the Next Level F1GT as first rig, I think it will be worth the investment. Just have to wait untill the end of May, looking forward to it.

Hello Erik

Have you already bought a new wheel?

I use the Thrustmaster T500 RS for several years now and never had any problem.

AFAI the T500 RS has better pedals (made of steel) than the T300. But there should be many tests online to find.

Good luck. freuen

No, I will use a G25 for the first few months because I can get it quite cheap from a friend of mine. First I want to invest in a decent rig that will last me a long time. I've just ordered the one that checks everyting on my whishlist (Simétik K2).

But the T500 RS is defenitly on my wishlist for future upgrades. I've never even owned a wheel as good as a G25 before, so everything will already be a big improvement. freuen

About pedals by the way, if I remember correctly there was a limit of usb devices that GPL could utilize?

I've seen some video's on the T300 wheel and I think that would be a good upgrade in the future. But Fanatac has a load cell pedal set which is only slightly more expensive than the T3PA pro pedals from Trustmaster.

I understand connecting seperate wheel and pedals via usb would work with AC, GTR 2 etc. but would it also work with GPL?
