This thread could apply to PC gamers too, but figured I'd put it in Console Games. Anybody here have a custom built cockpit for racing games? If so, what equipment are you using? If possible post a picture of the setup.

I built a small one around the time Gran Turismo 4 came out, but I tore it apart in 2007 due to move. Haven't rebuilt it since, and I've sold everything but the wheel. Was a lot of fun to play with though, I spent a lot of time in that thing. Used to be a huge gamer in the mid 2000s (My profile pic comes from Ace Combat) but I have fallen out due to lack of time.

I had a basic one when I was heavy into Forza Motorsport 2 on the Xbox 360. It was a Playseat Evo and the Microsoft steering wheel. It made quite a difference on sweeping turns since I could easily maintain a proper line with the wheel.
