You know what they say, if you can’t get something done right then you might as well do it yourself. Sometimes, this might be something simple. Other times, folks find a way to get a little bit carried away. Projects can spiral out of control and seem to go above and beyond rather quickly at times.
In this situation, it would just so happen that a gamer was the one who had found himself in this predicament. Sure, there are rigs out there to mount a steering wheel to. Instead, he decided to put his skills to the test in the real world, seeing just how he could pull out the stops to build his own.
If you’re familiar with the way that racing video games work, you can use a controller like most people. On the other hand, for those dedicated to a true simulation experience, they might elect to go with a steering wheel. However, these might be a little bit expensive and not exactly to the specifications that one would like. Sometimes, they’re simply not the way to go. This video game player found a way around the price and lack of customization barrier, to say the least.
If you follow along with the video below, you’ll be able to watch the steps that come together to bring this thing to life! It might’ve started out as nothing more than a pile of raw materials. Most probably saw nothing more than some wood and metal. For this enthusiast, he saw the perfect way to create a full-on racing experience.
We have to say that this guy carried out the job with some wild precision. He’s really giving himself the opportunity to put together something to be enjoyed for years to come. With a rig like this, we could see getting lost in games for hours! – Mr.Vereshchak
