Xbox 360 Wheel Stand – Homemade

Alright, this thing looks a bit ghetto, since I haven't painted it, but it works great.

Keep in mind, I made this oversize, as I'm 6'4, and I can give the wheel a serious workout. (I know the models with the vertical tube mount wouldn't hold up to my thrashing.)

You can see that I placed the crossbrace, which is a stability requirement, here to double as a pedal riser.

Shot of the pedals from the front. I had to work with this a couple times to get it right. Pedal base movement is a no-go, and it wasn't made with Sasquatch feet in mind. This heel plate acts as a clamp to the base to hold it down and it also mounts up against the center of the base to keep it from having any movement in any direction.

In use, the heel plate feels like an actual floorboard, instead of an area inside a plastic box.

Profile shot of the wheel. I have completely removed the lap mount, and this makes the entire assembly more sturdy and less flexible, and as a bonus gives the wheel a more appropriate profile. I have 8 screws going through the wheelstand top plate and into the original screw holes for the lap mount on the base of the wheel, so no modification is necessary to the wheel or housing itself.

The top plate is angled for proper racing wheel tilt, since we aren't driving a dumptruck.

In the end, I could have made it a bit smaller, but I'd rather have too much room than not enough.

When using this wheel on my particular sofa, I am in a typical racing posture, without a complete cockpit setup.

If you're good with hand tools, you can probably make one as well. Just takes a few supplies, a couple of tools and couple of hours.

    what size of wood you brought to make the table ?
    Thank you please relay

  4. It’s mostly 5/8 plywood, 2x4s and a piece of 2×6 and a piece of 1×3. (I think)

    Exact type/size of material is not that important though, this was just some scrap I had available.
