    Need advice selecting a NEW SIM RIG KIT [Mid - High end]

    OLD SETUP: Home made metal frame, Thrustmaster T500RS with T3PA Pro and TH8A shifter.

    Platform: PC

    Stuck at home in lock down and I have decided to upgrade my Sim Rig.

    Budget: XXXX (2 to 3 grand or so...)

    So far I have ordered a 80/20 Black Anodized Aluminium Rig frame. Waiting for delivery....


    Base and Wheel: Thinking of a Direct Drive base - wheel (round) combo preferred, without going overboard (around USD $1000 - can stretch).
    Any ideas of the best in class at this price point (don't want some buggy boat anchor).

    Pedals: Fanatec Clubsport V3 (are these reliable? as I have read a few negative reviews).

    Shifter: Fanatec Clubsport SQ V1.5


    Looking forward to some valuable advice on kit selection....

    ps. I live in Australia. So not everything is available like in USA, UK, EU.

    I have the pedals and shifter you you are considering and I've been very happy with them.

    Oh good!
    Are you connecting the pedals directly to the PC via USB?
