Got this setup ~a few weeks ago and have been on the sim quite regularly. It really helps with learning new tracks.

I have a set of race seats in my M2, so I figured I'd repurpose my OEM seats as they were just laying around. Got them on sliders and everything.

Nice! How are the curve screens? Any distortions vs flat screens?

I also have curved and I see no noticeable distortions.

I think the only people who complain about curved screens giving distortion are people who either A) immediately hate anything that's different than what they have, or B) have something set up wrong.

Here's my full wooden rig triple monitor setup I built for those boring college nights

PC: Ibuypower pre-built PC (idk how to build PCs) with 3060Ti
Wheel: Thrustmaster TMX
Pedals: Thrustmaster T3PA
Shifter: Thrustmaster TH8a
Seat: Nissan Altima seat for $20 from junkyard
TVs: Middle - 1080p 32" Vizio, Sides - 720p 32" Hisense
Games: AC, ACC

Let me know if you have advice on what to improve next. I'm thinking a DD wheel but idk if the wooden rig can handle that force.

Your rig could handle a DD base. I used a Fanatec DD1 on a Next Level F-GT Lite for nearly a year. No troubles at all and I like a heavy wheel.

When the upgrade bug bites, new pedals will yield the most improvement to your lap times.

Trying to change my setup to be more F1 centric, thus, getting a new Sparco GP seat (formula style). But the screen is way too high and not sure how I can bring it down without moivn g it further back…. Sigh !!!

A) Have you thought about moving the display closer? With the distance you have between wheel and base, you could pull the display inward and drop it (what looks like) a few inches so it's almost touching the red hub.

B) How do you like those Active Pedals?

Yeh, I thought about moving it closer but the screen is too bright and big, I dont want it to be in my face. I'm also sensitive to too much brightness and I'm afraid I might get easily dizzy.


The activepedals is great. The thing that made me do it was the adjustability via the software instead of tinkering with different springs, load and angles.

I haven't set up a formula rig yet, but from what I've researched and what I see in your rig it looks like your seat is still too high and not reclined enough. Your feet should be roughly chest height or just below chest height. This would move your head further away from the screen as it currently sits, so it might allow you to move the screen inward and down like Roman suggested. Unfortunately because of the seat and wheel position of formula racing I've always understood that it is difficult to get the proper monitor position, which is why you see a lot of large monitors out in front of the rig.

Thank you for the tips. I’ll give it a shot… otherwise, I’m inclined to put my setup back as it was and sell this GP seat.

Apologies for never responding to this.. I don't have any experience in comparing it with flat screens.. but I love the curvature of my screens. Works great for me.

I don't know if you guys have many micro centers closeby but they have an insane deal right now for the GSI X29 wheel and Simucube Sport for 1000. It's $850 off. Mine already sold out but thought I'd give a heads up as its an absolute insane deal.
