Every once in a while we get stands returned, this is one of them. We check out the stands to ensure all the required parts are included, make sure it's in good working order, clean them up...and sell them again at a discount. Win-win. The stands may have some signs of use, a scratch here or there but in good working shape.
The heavy full metal construction supports the most punishing force-feedback settings and keeps the stand and the wheel stable
The rubber feet combined with the steel tubes make for a smooth driving experience
Our pedals are hard mounted [not just resting on the base], so they will not move when you race [important we think] and they will not fall off and pull the delicate wiring out of your $300 wheel if your significant other moves the stand [again, important we think]. We provide a plate that spans the bottom two rails and a bolt that goes through this plate and bolts into the pedal assembly
The Logitech Wheel comes with two imbedded locations that we can bolt into; we provide two hardened bolts to secure the wheel to the upper plate
At Wheel Stand Pro, the highest priority was to maintain a solid base for racing; our stand is the result
Hey, is that pole in the way?
No. The stand was designed so that your legs go on either side of the pole. When you switch from the gas to the brake, the natural motion of pivoting on your heel is unobstructed by the pole , honest
Honey, company is coming
As good as we believe this stand looks, it only takes a couple seconds to fold the stand down and carry it out of the vision of non-gamers
The wheel support tube has quick release at the bottom and a full range of motion to accommodate a long limbed gamer sitting in a high upright chair to Mr. Easy-Rider in the lowest of low-slung gaming chairs
The top wheel supporting plate can be adjusted to any angle so that the wheel can always remain on plane
The large tube at the back of the bottom rails can be quickly adjusted in or out to fit the tallest and the shortest of gamers.
The height of the stand can be adjusted with a quick release to the gamers requirements
The Logitech G27 Shifter can be mounted on either side. This one is not so quick to change back [unbolt the wheel, move the shifter plate] so choose wisely
I need help! [sometimes you just need someone]
We have a person to answer your call, her name is Lucy, at 972-861-0140 [you can also text that number]. If she doesn't answer [ cause she is in the warehouse or racing] it's best to leave her a message. She will call back, usually within 15 minutes if it's during normal business hours.
We have video instructions on our site, customer have loaded up about a zillion YouTube videos, reviews etc.
Did I say we have a real person? I should have said we have a real person who cares.
What's in the box? [everything you need except the wheel/pedals; you provide those]
The bolts you need to attach your wheel and pedals
The tools you need to secure your wheel, pedals and shifter to our stand
Tie-wraps to keep your wiring in line
Instructions in English
Where is my wheel!
There are no wheel/pedals you really have to provide those
Wheels are not included
No hay ninguna rueda en el caja
Nope still no wheel
All kidding aside, if you are asking a significant other to make a purchase for you, we recommend they give us a call we will help.
We hear you. Still thinking that something so small can not possibly be as good as we [including multiple reviewers and thousands of Wheel Stand Pro customers] claim it to be.
It's not a conspiracy; it's actually fairly simple.
Strong, very strong construction. Think tank-like.
You [the driver] are holding the wheel securely, tight turn ahead
Your feet are on the pedals
The frame is rock solid
So you've got rock solid frame, feet on the pedals hands on the wheels. Your mind is on the awesome graphics of the game. All is good in the world, because if you're thinking about the stand while you are playing the game you've got the wrong stand
Race like a pro Wheel Stand Pro
Boring Stuff Packaging Details
Size (L x W x H): 27 inches x 16 inches x 5 inches
Shipping Weight: 18 pounds
Out of the box dimensions: The stand is 16 inches wide, 26 inches long and between 18 inches to 28 inches to the top of the plate [the wheel bolts to the top of the plate so your hands will be a few inches taller then this].
Assembly was fairly easy. I would only change the plate on the pedals as far as design goes. I put power pack in between plate and seems sturdier. Everything else is great! I bought a refurbished one. Everything was in great shape and no parts missing. Very happy with my purchase. Definitely would recommend buying one of these if you want a sturdy rig and want to store it away and hook up your rig with ease. Worth every penny!

Must have for any sim racer with limited space. The only thing, and this is more of a preference, is the shifter mount is right next to the wheel, instead of lower like on the center console, and no attachment available to simulate that. Incredibly sturdy rig-on-the-fly.
