Building A Driving Simulator – Video Tutorial

Gregg Langnese has released an impressive video tutorial on how to build an amazing simulator.

About a year ago, Gregg Langnese posted several videos of his very impressive simulator that was build with a budget of less than $1000.

    1000 USD with or without monitors. Its not that cheap if its without them

    I like the sled concept. I like the idea of having everything mounted inside the sled. You could then have a power jack and ethernet jack on the side of the sled and that is all you would need to plug in. That sled takes up a lot of floor space though.

    Wish I had the space for something like this in my house. I like it.
