Just spotted this. Currys currently have 25% off all Logitech using code LOGITECH25. It’s a little more than the Black Friday deal but it’s the cheapest by far I can see at the moment. £180+ elsewhere for just the wheel is the next cheapest I can see.

It was £129 last Christmas, I bought it


Once you factor in the cost of a time machine this is actually quite competitive compared to last year.

Hopefully they'll be the same price again this year. But for the time being this seems like a good deal.

Good price.
Good price. Don't think a mate of mine will be happy as he paid the £220 for it last week

is this compatible with euro truck2
These are excellent, the G920 is also reduced. Got mine the other week, transforms driving games.
Still got one of these brand new, in the box. Never used.

(Without shifter)

If anyone is interested.

Was that just wheel and pedals only or also with shifter?

With shifter

Edit - to be clear, it was also that price or close to it without shifter. But definitely available for a brief period at Christmas last year with the shifter from currys.

It went to £99 without the shifter and £129 with the shifter if I remember correctly, I bought it with and a mate of mine bought it without. I think it'll drop to around them prices again, always going on offer

Yeah just checked my emails from Currys and it was £129.98 with the shifter.

£99 without was much earlier that year wasn't it? I missed it.

Hopefully it will drop again for those that missed it. It is definitely as you say, always going on offer, though the £99 and £129 deals were especially good.

yes remember last year it was £129 but couldnt remember if that was with or without shifter , so we should see those deals again if not better being a year on now
It's the idea of having to find a decent stand that always puts me off.

I made one from CLS timber and it works perfectly - it even folds down if we need to put it away and fits under the sofa (with the wheel removed etc).

It's nothing to look at, as it's still technically in the "prototype" stage so needs painting but it works flawlessly and can be used by me or my 10 year old son without having to adjust anything.

It probably cost me about £15 in total, plus a bit of work cutting and making it.

Going back to the other prices mentioned in this thread - it doesn't matter what price it was 1, 6 or 18 months ago, if you want to buy this now then this is the lowest price you pay period!! I never understand when people comment about how much it was in the past, what use is that information other than to try and make people feel bad that they missed out on something over a year ago!!!
It has been cheaper, but it probably won’t go lower than this until Black Friday next year... just my humble opinion

Got this kit last year and bought a wheelstand pro to mount it on, it's very stable and folds away when not in use

My comment is purely for comparison.

If you wanna pull out the time machine comment which is getting very tired and overused now by the way then rock on.

The Logitech is amazing imo.

We had a Thrustmaster Ferrari wheel before, the £80 458 one and it was ok but didnt last very long until the bungee cord snapped inside. Thrustmaster couldn’t send me any spares to fix it and basically said tough! It was only just out of warranty

Heard it's very noisy the Logitech and clunky where the thrustmaster t150 is also belt driven which apparently is super quiet

Haven’t noticed it being particularly noisy. It can feel notchy due to the gears used to drive it, but it doesn’t detract from the wheel in use.

Playing F1 2017 with it is just amazing and the ffb in the bends is excellent.

Only issue is the brake pedal which is very hard to use, but inF1 I just have the brake assigned to the clutch pedal. I believe it can’t be modded easily though with a new rubber.

Finding a decent stand is easy, finding a decent stand cheap is difficult. I just paid £140 for the wheelstand pro with the shifter attachment. I chose this because it’s fully adjustable and folds away. The gt omega is another decent one if you don’t need to fold it away.

Just took a few pics, below.

As I said, it's rough for now and has been through a few incarnations but will be sanded down and painted eventually.

I originally built it for the official Xbox 360 wheels and pedals years ago and the base was much longer to slide under the sofa when in use.

I then adapted it for the Thrustmaster 458 wheel and pedals but when that wheel broke I bought the G920 the other week and once again had to adapt it for that - the Logitech pedals are huge so I had to extend the bottom arms to fit.

But it all works perfectly and is OK for me at 6ft and also my 10yo son who is just over 5ft tall.

It's held together with 10mm bolts, washers and locknuts which allows it to move freely without coming undone.

If I built it again I would put the folding legs on the outside and make it all a bit wider as they do catch on my knees a bit.

Future plans are to swiss cheese the legs and base to make it a bit lighter, sand it down and paint it all white with some logos and add some grippier feet.

But all in all, for the £15 or so it cost I love it.

SUPER impressive!!!

Thanks for the pics. I wanted to build something similar but I’m far too lazy so I broke the bank and went for the wheelstand pro. You should refine the design and sell them on eBay mate

Not sure if you use Sketchup, but I still have the original Sketchup design file that I used to make it if you need a copy of it.

Here it is (and what the final version was supposed to look like)

32804465-uYWUY.jpg

As I say, it did look like that when I first built it but then had various changes to where it is now.

The CLS timber is about £2.50 a length when on offer, bolts were about £6 ish from Screwfix and then just a bit of MDF. If you go to your local Jewsons they will give you some MDF offcuts which is what I used for mine.

You must be a cool dad. Probably feels very fulfilling to play on a stand you’ve made yourself
