Home Made Pc Racing Game Controller Set

Introduction: Home Made Pc Racing Game Controller Set

About: DIY hobbyist since childhood
this is my homemade pc racing game controller which i built a year ago. and i designed it to suit my needs when racing. it has steering wheel with improvised steering wheel, center return mechanism and paddle shifts, H-shifter,handbrake, pedals and switch panels. all of it is home made with good design and durable construction. i have not put some finish on it yet but im looking forward to it soon.i made this from scratch and i designed it myself from its electronics up to its mechanisms.

and it functions as good as it is.

this set is mounted on a modified computer table to give more rigidity to hold the whole set including the desktop pc.

you can watch the videos here:

    that's really cool, will be following this all the way.. I would like a setup like this to help better driving skills.. your setup here has taken the control all the way and not even Logitech has done that ..looking forward to it.

    the cost of a set of a Logitech controller is Php7,500 here in the philippines

    and the cost of production my set is around Php1,700 only.

    first i wrote this up on plans and put some test so i can see how it will perform.
    actually, this is my 3rd prototype for this type of controller. the first two prototypes are not kinda successful.

    just wondering did you scrap another steering controller or really make this from scratch?
