Thanks for the hint, Walker. :-)
Nice idea with the folding wings in your pit :-) And I envy you for the triple monitors...
Two quick ones:
1. I intend to secure the stick with screws. Is it comfy to have the mouse on the right side of the stick for fps etc?
2. When you had a wheel in your pit, did you have racing pedals also? I'm not quite sure how and where to put my 2 sets of pedals..
Sorry for the delayed response!
1. I don't mind having the mouse to the right; however, I would prefer to have it elevated higher, like in your v3. The angle is a little uncomfortable on the wrist after a while.
2. I had to swap pedals out by hand, and I drilled a hole through them and secured them with a wood screw. Having them both setup would be much much better.
As far as the pedal position, seeing the above post by Andy gave me an idea. Instead of having the top pedals "tilt" up, you could have them mounted on a keyboard sliding tray and slide them up at an angle to get them out of the way. They would have to be latched in the upped position, which could be accomplished with a string and spring loaded pin as discussed earlier.
Also, the computer case could be mounted behind the monitors, above the pedals. This makes it up a little higher and easier to access if you need to unhook cables etc, as opposed to sitting on the ground (also keeps it up out of dust that collects on the floor).
