Sim Racing Cockpits
The TR1 Team Redline and GT2 chassis are more minimalistic and compact by design. For the Fanatec crew, TR1 is more attractive, as its wheel deck is compatible with the standard Fanatec bottom mounting pattern, while GT2 is primarily focused on compatibility with OSW/Simucube motors. In case you prefer GT2's profile-based pedal deck while keeping TR1 wheel mounting options, the TR1 wheel deck upgrade pack for GT2 will get you covered.
Last, but not least, is the latest in our line-up - WS-Pro wheel stand. One of the most cost-effective solutions on the market and, thanks to its carefully engineered body, it can successfully handle the power of the Fanatec Direct Drive systems.
Mounting Fanatec Wheels
Amateurs or not, we are all aware the quality of the solid wheel mount is of the same importance as the quality of the wheel. Sim-Lab hardware is in a pole position. Here is a table to select the right combination.
WD = Wheeldeck FM = Front mount SM = Side mount
* While CSW 2.5 and DD wheels can be mounted on a front mount bracket, it will void your warranty
The P1-X rig comes with optional wheel mounts. As a result, you can choose between the wheel deck mount and bespoke Fanatec DD1/DD2 and CSL DD brackets. Furthermore, you can also buy the Fanatec DD Podium mounting bracket as an add-on for the GT1-EVO.

Moreover, Sim-Lab SD43-X Sim Dash is compatible with Fanatec DD wheels!
Installing Fanatec Pedals
Full compatibility between the Sim-Lab cockpits and Fanatec pedals
* Fanatec CSL with Load Cell Kit is mounted using both front holes and two (out of 3) back holes, on the accelerator and brake pedals.
However, if you are searching for some extra features, you may want to look into the following products. With the Pedal slider baseplate, you can quickly adjust the position of the pedals. The pedal plate pattern is compatible with the Fanatec CSL V3 and CSL Elite pedals. Also, check out the Sim-Lab’s Inverted Pedal rack, designed for P1-X and GT1-EVO.
Mounting Fanatec Accessories
We designed two mounting brackets, the universal one for Fanatec ClubSport shifter or Fanatec handbrake, and the CS shifter bracket with tilt adjustment.
The tilt shifter plate can be used in a vertical and horizontal position
*The handbrake can be hard-mounted to the Fanatec Shifter
P1-X and GT1-EVO already come with the designated side mounts for the shifter. You can buy the side mounts for all other Sim-Lab cockpits separately: GT2 / TR1 – Side mount, WS-Pro Wheelstand Side mount.
The perfect sim racing setup takes you one step closer to the track. With the solid mounting hardware, you will experience all the fun of sim racing.
