    Pedals sliding on carpet

    This isn't a problem with the game, but just hear me out. I have a thrustmaster 458 spyder wheel/pedal combo, and the pedals are sliding on my carpet when I play. Any suggestions to help stop it?

    I mounted my pedals to a sizable piece of wood, which was measured so that it butted up to the wall, and the pedals were at the correct distance from my chair for correct placement. As I applied pressure to the pedals, the wood they were mounted to was already firmly against the wall, so the pedals were also firmly planted.

    You can buy inch long spikes with threads on one end. If mounted to wood or something else, you can use this to place it into the carpet, poking through the carpet and padding down to the (probably) cement below. I found these when I was trying to stabilize a large set of speakers on my apartment carpeting years ago.

    Search online for "speaker spikes" or "carpet spikes". I vaguely remember them being about a dollar. If you mount the pedals to a small piece of wood, this will keep them solidly in place and won't tear up your carpet.

    This was my first rough self made pedal stand some years ago.
    The black addition is not nescessary. Just drill holes to put in the rolls of the chair.

    but constantly evolved since then.
    All made with wood.

    Another idea is to go to your local hardware store and buy a section of plastic carpet runner (the one with the little points on the bottom) and affix it to your pedal cluster. Cheap and easy.
