About a year ago, Gregg Langnese posted several videos of his very impressive simulator that was build with a budget of less than $1000.
Now, Gregg has released a detailed video tutorial for everyone who wants to build such a simulator themselves. The first part of the tutorial is below and focuses on the simulator base, upcoming parts will cover the monitor stand and steering rack.
