For many sim racers there are tons of options for sim racing chassis or rigs.  However when it comes to triple screen monitor stands for sim racing there are not that many to chose from.  

In this video Shauns shows off his design for a triple monitor stand that is made out of 80/20 extrusion or profile tubing.  This universal material can be used to make a very good monitor stand completely designed around your rig.

He goes through each step of the build along with a list of parts and instruction on how to design and build your own triple monitor stand.
 


Here is a list of the total parts used in this build:
Tubing:


Hardware:


Here are a few 80/20 tubing suppliers for information.  I urge you to shop around and find the best source for you:

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!

Okay 20 minutes is too short. Make the races an hour. Can you make it w/o pitting? I don't know, but with or w/o pitting it would be fun.

Thanks for the breakdown of your driving next to the best of your race. This comparison was an eye opener to how I should be driving compared to how I am actually driving.  You keep referring to trail breaking I'm relatively new to this new IRacing,(was an original owner of the first Nascar and had spend hours upon hours doing it.)  And I just don't get how it helps or hurts your racing style, I'll keep watching thanks for the video's and keep going fast.
