Prior to the release of Forza Motorsport 3 for the Xbox 360 in 2009, I spent 16 straight hours in my garage tackling another project I’d kicked around for a long time—a racing wheel stand that was adjustable and portable—that could be moved aside or pulled directly up to my favorite gaming chair.
I’m really the last person handy enough to do something like this—so it was more than satisfying to realize this vision—an idea I’d drawn up years prior. On top of actually being able to cobble this puppy together(without losing any fingers), it actually works extremely well and I still use it often.
Microsoft featured my contraption on their Forza Motorsport blog around the release of Forza 3, and I created a spec sheet for them to post for others wishing to make something similar. If you’re interested you can download it here.
My friend D.P. coined it, The Koenigsegg. While it might not quite live up to that pedigree—I must say—amongst my immediate circle of gaming buds, it brought me much fame. Outside of that, it’s provided many hours of fun, and is way cheaper than a real Koenigsegg.
