A great sturdy stand

Summary: Please do not be deceived by the simplicity in looks of this stand, its such a practical racing wheel stand. Superb ergonomics and economics of space. Top of it all is the great customer oriented man behind the product, very swift to respond to your queries. I will recommend this to anyone who wants to give racing more than a cursory consideration.
Summary: I bought this to go along with my Logitech driving force GT and it really is just perfectly made for the wheel. it seemed a little wobbly when I was setting it up and I had kind of hesitated buying it but once you have everything set this stand doesn't move and it easily allows you to get up / sit down. I would suggest getting some velcro or 3M double sided tape though to secure the pedals on the bottom plate since they will move around a little bit.
Summary: A great wheel for the price. I have not tried the significantly more pricey G25/G27, however the DFGT is a massive step up from a controller and is well worth every penny. The force feedback is great. The wheel has worked with every racing game I've used it with. Some of the games require calibration, but you can look online for help with setting up the wheel for a particular game. I've used it with GT5, F1 2011, rFactor, and SimRaceway.
Good idea & design, shoddy worksmanship & attention to detail

Summary: I've spent the past half hour trying to configure this thing. The tubes in the telescoping adjustable arms should have tighter tolerances - vice grips were required to telescope one of the arms due to an extremely tight fit, and the other arm was only slightly looser. Also, there is a long metal rod that holds the pedal pan in place, but there is no fastener to keep it from sliding out - I can see it slipping out after ~20 play/storage cycles.
Summary: I'll start off by saying that I am now on my second DFGT wheel, and I'm about to return it too. I use the wheel exclusively for Gran Turismo 5, and when it works it's a lot of fun to use, and makes the game much better. However, the reason I had to return one and now the second one is because of the pedals. The first one, straight out of the box on the very first usage had an issue with the brake pedal where it would stick in the on position after releasing the pedal.
Summary: As many, I purchased this stand, because clamping my wheel to anything in the living room (in my case a board strapped across my sofa) just didn't cut it and made for a lengthy disassembly after every racing session. This stand delivers! Make and quality are excellent, and as others have pointed out, the powder coating is well done and durable. I opted for the "Big Boy" version.
