Picture of KNEX Steering Wheel for Xbox 360

steering wheel with 2 pedals for Xbox 360 wireless or wired controller.

i don't rebuild this unless i find a good way to make it precise.
don't even bother to build it, it's bad and this (mine) instructable is 5639X worse

I've made a steering wheel mount with K'nex just follow this link:

knexsuperbuilderfreak (author)2008-04-18

could it be possable if i could fit one of these in to the steering wheel?

some modifications are necessary so it fits in but for acceleration and brake,no word;new steering model is needed.

yay i did it! and i have shifter to. +1

Really? How? And what game is it designed for?

danymw (author)rookiebuilder2010-11-07

mine was for forza motorsport 2, but work with any.
knexsuperbulderfreak 's shifter should be for games using the right analog stick, amirite?

rookiebuilder (author)danymw2010-11-19

I think the shifter used the "X" and "Y" buttons, but it depends on what game you are playing.

lol gamecube. i never really liked any of nintendo after gamecube, wii is dumb, i dont wanna move around whenst gaming. and the gamecube disks were... you know. but 64 was the best, had awesome games and worked great. plus xbox is better than anything WOOT XBOX

can you use something other than KNEX ??? plz tell me

danymw (author)okgo1252009-09-11

i can't,but you or anyone else can build a 5 times better system out of knex,lego or even wood.i quit because using knex it's impossible to get it work precisely,so it's only as an concept.

rookiebuilder (author)danymw2010-11-07

Check out mine! Feel free to use it as an inspiration!

Please comment and let me know what mods you would add/what needs improved! (Don't whine about my filming skills...I used an iPod Nano gen 5 to film it)

I'm also confused.

jackatronix (author)2009-10-26

very interesting but needs a lot more clearer instructions and pictures

skatelong (author)2009-07-03

do you have any ideas on how to make one for ps3?

danymw (author)skatelong2009-07-04

sorry,i don't. it's up to you to build one for the ps3,because i don't have any ps3 controller. i thing it is useless,because you can use the motion thing, ?

gerrits13 (author)2009-06-29

i am confused to

rexdino5 (author)2009-05-29

im soo confused at the start is there a more detailed part at the beginning? I'm such a nub at building from big objects.

I3uckwheat (author)2008-12-28

with some modding could this be used with a ps2

danymw (author)I3uckwheat2008-12-29

sure,but accelerate with right stick:must build new system to the steering wheel.with the xbox360 controller,i accelerate with trigger 'R2',so it's different

I3uckwheat (author)danymw2008-12-29

i could always change the controller setting for the game for a while... ps if i got it to work with default settings could i post it? i will give you credit. if not you can post it.

danymw (author)I3uckwheat2008-12-30

no problem,you can post it

I3uckwheat (author)danymw2009-01-01

thank you so much i will get to work on it when i will have time and i will link to this instructable.

shakra13 (author)2008-11-06

hay to thous who made this,can u post som better instructens,to thous of us who r not albert einstin

Storm950 (author)2008-08-25

Should I build for PGR4? Because it looks very good. Is it sturdy? Reliable?

danymw (author)Storm9502008-08-25

it's pretty good and a bit modding to the steering main system would make it perfect. instructions,yes,a bit hard to follow,but i will change my stategy on the next one.soon,second model,complete new design and maybe 2 buttons,i'll see what i discover throught the buidling process.i recommand starting with this one,and if you liked,you surely will like the next one

Storm950 (author)danymw2008-08-25

Ok thanks for the reply.

Storm950 (author)2008-08-25

These instructiond also look quite hard to follow.... :S

benboy207 (author)2008-08-22

how does it press the buttons down and move the stick?

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-05-21

Very Well done. I would certainly build if I had a xbox :-(

plasmaspy (author)I_am_Canadian2008-06-22

woohoo so there IS other people who dont have xbox's =O

I_am_Canadian (author)plasmaspy2008-06-23

I dont have any gaming systems.

plasmaspy (author)I_am_Canadian2008-06-23

except a computer?

I_am_Canadian (author)plasmaspy2008-06-23

I dont have a computer......

plasmaspy (author)I_am_Canadian2008-06-23

gee how are you posting comments then............ -.-

I_am_Canadian (author)plasmaspy2008-06-23

Uh....... cell phone?

plasmaspy (author)I_am_Canadian2008-06-23

you can use phones to post?!?

I_am_Canadian (author)plasmaspy2008-06-23

Erm, I dunno. You "I dont have a computer" was sarcastic. sorry

plasmaspy (author)I_am_Canadian2008-06-23

ah lol

I_am_Canadian (author)plasmaspy2008-06-23

Its hard to pick up sarcasm on the internet.

u can use those i phones and phones that connect to the internet to post. you just use your phone to connect to the internet and go to instructables and use the numbers to type. like text. also did you know that they came out with a new i phone? I REALLY WANT ONE!!!!!!!!!!!

I DONT!!! The plans for those are loke $100/month. Ouch!

danymw (author)I_am_Canadian2008-08-07

my friend spent 120euros for logging in everyday for a month... i gotta get an iPhone 3G ,only 150 euros,cm'on,everyone should buy it.and i like a lot the screen touch

I_am_Canadian (author)danymw2008-08-07

Im never going to fall for that waste of money.

It dosen't cost $100 a month. It's more like $20-$30

danymw (author)red scourge2008-08-12

over 100 if you're in belgium and use romanian orange network

red scourge (author)danymw2008-08-13

Well when you put it that way...

Greenymeany (author)2008-06-25

what buttons are the gas and brake and are the rigth and left trigger activated by the pedals if so how?
