The Ultimate Steering Wheel Stand
on 14 August 2014
After buying a Thrustmaster wheel and pedals for iRacing.com I went with this product as it had good reviews and it looked pretty sturdy.
After unpacking the stand it's pretty easy to assemble as there are only 3 main parts to the stand, the base, the shelf that you actually attach the wheel to and the column that's attached to the base and the shelf, the rest is mostly screws for attaching the different parts. Allen keys are supplied to help with assembly.
Within about 10 minutes or so I had it built and then it was just a matter of adjusting the height and the tilt to my liking. The build quality is great, the main parts are all metal and the shelves where the pedals and steering wheel attach are wood. It's a very sturdy unit, the only thing I will say is that it does slide about a little when I'm using it (mostly when i'm accelerating it will move forward a fraction, not a big issue but during a long race it is noticeable and I have to pull the steering wheel towards me to get it back in place) as the 2 plastic feet on the unit don`t grip on my wooden floor, so it looks like I will have to buy a rubber mat of some sort to stop it sliding forward.
When you are finished using the stand just undo 1 screw and it folds up pretty flat so you can store it away without it taking up to much room. I've only had the stand a few days but it has had a lot of use on iRacing and I'm very happy with it. I would recommend this stand to anyone as it's great for the price and does the job really well.
