|February 8, 2016 Thrustmaster A-10C Warthog flight controls|
Have been working on a new line of adpters to mount flight controls to the XL20-21 stand. Here are some pictures of the XL20 stand with adapters for the Thrustmaster HOTAS A-10C Warthog flight controls, with keyboard and CH Products Pro flight control pedals. Stand is on XRocker Gaming chair with 3D printed adapters. Everything folds up and stands up nicely for storage. Will also have adapters for side mount of the A-10C Warthog joystick and side mount for other flight controls with 7" square base. So far this is pretty awesome, have been working on proper placement and have found a very comfortable place for the Warthog controls. Still have some work to do to get them to market, but should be in coupler months. Hope to work on some of the other CH Products after this is going. The XL20-21 stands make a great platform for flight controls as well as Sim Racing wheels and pedals

First parts for Xlerator stand were designed with CAD and tested with 3D printer. The new XL60 low mount shifter adapter is available for special order. I have some pieces laser cut and ready to weld together. The shifter uses 1" mini muffler clamps to attach to the lap bar leg. Adjustable up and down on the leg. Puts the shifter in a more natural position. Will work with Logitech G25-27, Thrustmaster TH8RS, Fanatec CSS and SQ shifters. Also has extra holes to mount Fanatec shifters with original adapter supplied with XL20-21 stands.

Got the new Fanatec Forza Motorsports CSR Wheel, CSR Elite Pedals and Finally the CSR Shifter Set! The wheel and Shifter bolt right up, but have to drill out two front hole on the pan to use slightly narrower bolt pattern on the CSR Elite pedals from the Clubsport pedals. These are way longer pedals than clubsports and can only use the two front bolts of the CSR pedals. This does not seem to effect anything with the fuction of the stand or pedals at all. These are nice ridgid pedals and make the pedal pan very stable even flipped up for storage. This set up look very nice with the black and orange wheel with black stand. Nice job Fanatec!

Want to thank Todd for turning me on to these new Aluminum seatpost clamps on eBay. They work very nice for the top and bottom of the upright tubes on XL20-XL23 stands and should really help the XL3-7 stands also. These clamp around the 1" and 7/8" tubes with a shallow lip inside the clamp. This is polished but they come in different colors and would be an awesome add-on for customizing your stand! They hold more solid than the sock clamp that come with the stand. They are Primo Slim Seatpost clamp, size 1" tube and 7/8" seatpost, 25.4mm. Got mine from bmxguru on eBay and he was very helpful. These are special clamps for older BMX bikes, the newer BMX clamps are for 1 1/8" tube and 1" seatpost, so check the size when ordering. He also has a double bolt seatpost clamps and will work on the top, but it is split in the center with a step for 1" and 7/8" and will not work on the bottom unless turned out. They just look cool!

Got the new Thrustmaster T500RS wheel yesterday and it fits on the new XL20 stand with no problems. The pedals have to be modified a little (have to unbolt the back stop for flipping pedals in the GT mode. They mount up in F1 configuration) but fit in the pedal pan. All of the new XL20 stands will be drill for the Thrustmaster T500RS wheel and pedals. The weight of the stand and T500RS is about 40 lbs, it is not easy to pack around (boat anchor) but man is it stable on the sofa. Please contact us if you have any questions about stands.

Here are some pictures of the new Xlerator XL20 stand for the Logitech G25/27 and the Fanatec 911 turbo S and RS steering wheels with regular or clubsport pedals. The stand works awesome and has corrected all of the issues with regular stand and adapter. Hope to have some of these for sale around the last part of June. THIS STAND IS VERY COOL!

Prototype stand turned out to have some small problems and very labor intensive to make, so am working on a simpler design that is working very well. They will have a new adapter to mount the shifter and wheel on the stand. Fanatec rods for shifter are worthless. I did make 6 of these stands and will auction off 5 of them on ebay. The other I am keeping for my personal stand. Pictures of new stand coming soon.

Here are pictures of a prototype stand for the Fanatec 911 Turbo S Wheel with Clubsport Pedals. Stand will also work with the Logitech G25-G27 Wheel and Pedals also the standard Fanatec Pedals. This stand is still in development and testing stages. First pictures of the new Xlerator Wheel Stand.

Came up with a very cool design for a new bottom part of the stand that will work with the larger more expensive pedals and wheels. Prototype is made and testing setup with Fanatec Porshe Turbo 911 S Wheel and Clubsport Pedals. So far the set up is awsome and works better than I expected. Still tweeking the measurments a little. Will release some photos and info when done.

Insidesimracing.tv by SRT Media did a review of the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless racing wheel on episode 54 that came out this weekend. In the review they used the Xlerator Wheel Stand to test the wheel with and had some nice things to say about the stand and wheel. It is toward the end of the show, here is the link.
They are going to do a review of the Xlerator Wheel Stand on the next episode so be watching for it. Thanks to Shaun and Darin at SRT media!

Have been doing some research ( That's right research! ) in the Xlerator Wheel Stands R&D Department here lately. Wanted to get some Pictures of it on the Website. The two modified Naite Furniture Company J-01 Black Recliners work awesome for a gaming chair and feels like you are sitting down in a car with the nice arms on them. I have not used any playseats (or 500 dollar set-up for that matter) that are as comfortable or stable as this set-up. The Naite J-01 Recliners I see online for $149.00, so very afordable.

Just got confirmation from Logitech that the G27 is the same as the G25 for the shifter and wheel mount. The G25 adapter will work for the G27 with out any modification.

E3 2009 was a great success. Everyone loved the stands and enjoyed using them at the show. Hope to see lots of Blogs and Reviews on the Xlerator Wheel Stands. Also lots of interest in adapting the Xlerator Stand with Flight Yokes, so look for that in the future.
