    @Crunch I'm running a Simlabs GT1 Evo. Its got a tiny bit of movement in the wheeldeck but its not noticeable when driving. They do have a different mounting option for podium wheels similar to the Fanatec podium side mounts. I haven't tried them though so I don't know how they go.
    It was ~1400 all up with a seat I had to buy separately but I dunno what the conversion rate is at the moment. I've run it at 100% force a few times and it handles it better than I do.

    Hi @Crunch! I'm using the first gen Sim-lab GT1
    Was looking at building my own but with the stuffing around to save some $$$ or just have it delivered and put together I went with the lazy option.
    DD2 fits well... I can see the rig shake when other ppl drive it, but like Andy I don't notice it when I'm in VR racing.
    If it were an issue it's pretty easy for me now to get some extra parts to shore it up if I wanted to.
    Will probably look at this when I eventually get some actuators... it's next on my list but it's basically the cost of what I'm put down on my rig as it is so will have to wait a bit until I save that up.

    Thank you all for your amazing feedback! You've all been very helpful.

    And thanks for the link to the codes.
    I've whittled my shortlist down to:
    NLR GTTrack;
    TrakRacer TR160; or
    Sim-Labs P1-X.

    The GTTrack is the budget option of the shortlist so I'm gonna try a hands-on to see if it's good enough because if it is, then there's no need to spend more money. Even more enticing with a discount. I'm definitely cautious of the flex though.

    As good as many are it’s hard to argue that overall the P1-X is king. If you have the budget for it I would just get that. It epitomises the do it once do it right mentality

    I thought I would finally get around to sharing some photos of my setup.
    Over the years (as many people have) I have stepped up with the gear that I have used or been using.
    The current iteration is a TrakRacer TR160 with integrated triple monitor mount (although its only got one monitor mounted at the moment). Bolted to that is a Fanatec Podium F1 Wheel (DD1 for PS4) and the Clubsport v3 pedals with brake performance kit.

    And below is a quick photo of the old rig.

    Now to just get my wheel base back from repair and get back into racing.
