Featured sim racing rig: GT1 + Triple stand

Check out this sim racing rig of a customer based in the UK! It features the GT1 cockpit + Triple monitor stand combined to form a full setup. The monitors are detached from the rig so any vibrations of the DD-wheel doesn’t vibrate the monitors or wobble them.

The beating heart of this sim racing rig is the SimSteering2 FFB system of Leo Bodnar (see here) and is considered as the leading manufacturer of servo drive wheels. The seat shown is a SimXperience GS4 motion seat which isn’t sold anymore. It creates G-force effects by adding pressure at the exact part where in real life you would experience pressure when going true fast corners.

Additional to the racing gear there is the Thrustmaster HOTAS & Stick used for flight and space sims. These specialised plates will be soon available in the store.

“I am really impressed with the rigidity and strength of the structure once tightened up, there is nearly zero flex, and that is with using a Bodnar Direct Drive wheel and HE Ultimate pedals, 2 things that caused my old rig to creak and groan and move around..

Practical – I can see the potential for adapting and adding things to the rig in future, very adaptable and easy to change things.”

    Beautiful rig. About how much do you have invested? I’m new to simracing but have track experience which is very helpful. I now plan to move up from my simple setup and need to set a budget. Any comments would be appreciated.

      Hi Helmar, depends a lot on what type you are after. PC, triple screens, VR and wheel & pedals.
