I'm planning to buy a wheel stand and was wondering if anyone on here owns one or has tried some of them and has anything good or bad to say about them. I've narrowed down my choices to these ones:
- XL20 Xlerator wheel stand. This seems to have the advantage of being especially suited to playing from a couch or easy chair, because it allows you to sit all the way back and still have the wheel within easy reach. Also since the steering wheel column isn't between your legs, it might be easier to reach all the pedals with either foot, allowing heel-toe shifting and left foot braking more easily. The main disadvantage I see is it won't work well with a normal dining room type chair.
- Wheel Stand Pro. Seems sturdy, the steering wheel column can adjust to different angles other than 90 degrees, works with any chair or couch. The main disadvantage I can see is that on a couch or easy chair, you may not be able to lean back and still have the wheel close enough to be comfortable, so you're forced to either sit forward, or have your arms extended whay out to reach the wheel. Another potential disadantage is having the column between your legs, which might interfere with some ways of using the pedals.
- Rennsport Wheel Stand. Seems mostly similar to the Wheel Stand Pro, except as far as I can tell the steering column can't be adjusted to angles other than 90 degrees.
If you've used one of these, can you please comment whether the advantages and disadvantages I mentioned for them are true? Since I haven't seen any of these in person I'm just guessing based on the photos and product descriptions. Thanks for any help you can give me.
