LOL! That was my initial setup for years. Wheel Stand Pro and Thrustmaster. I loved it and it worked well. What started the upgrade process was the braking... I could not understand how some people were so much faster. 1-2 seconds, sure no sweat. But 5-7 seconds??? WTF. I couldnt modulate well and trail-braking meant spinning. So the upgrade process began...

Not sure what you are using for a chair (I had used an old dining room chair on my prior setup), but if you can mount it, the Butt Shaker an absolute must. Really transforms the experience IMO.

Thanks!

The stand is Rseat found here --> RSeat. Its kind of spendy, but the quality of the product is amazing. Very very robust and stable. Ships DHL from Europe to your door in less than week (not sure now in 'rona times). You can easily slide it to the FOV you want.

I also ended up with the shock absorber add-on for the pedals. Some people say the elastomer kit is better, but I really like the feel of the damper, feels more realistic.

Got my wheel & pedals last night, fired up Assetto Corsa, & proceeded to spin my way around a few tracks. I'm freaking awful, can't catch a spin for sh!t. Was a lot of fun though. I can see the draw of having a nice rig.
