    After owning this GT1-EVO rig for over a month now (I was one of the early adaptors for this rig I guess) it’s time to write a review om this awesome product.

    It started with the pickup, everything was neatly wrapped and packed, after the drive home I immediatley started with the build.. Everything was straight forward and the drawing was clear and easy to understand.

    After a while (guess it took me 2-3 hours and some beers to complete the build) the basic GT1-EVO stood on his own and was ready to adjust to personal preference. I noticed that the newly improved wheeldeck and pedaldeck were really amazing and I could find the sweet spot after a couple of tries. Since then I didn’t move anything as it is to my liking! I came from a DIY wooden rig with some flex in it and I must say this is just 10x better in rigidity and overal strength.

    Had done some races with it and I can say now it was totally worth it. The FFB of my wheel felt much smoother/sharper because of the lack in flex. Together with the triple monitor stand from Richard this is a rock solid piece of equipment that I would never ever replace (or only by the P1 maybe haha)

    Thanks Richard for the great service on everything, I’m very happy with the GT1-EVO and would recommend it to everyone.

    P.s. keep me posted on any updates you have 🙂
    P.s.s. I’m a BIG guy and I found that the GT1-EVO is perfect in size with its smaller footprint, I think even people that are close to 2.00m in length should fit without problems.

    Greetings,
    Michael

    I was a previous owners of an RSeat Evo but when latelly started to look at upgrading my cockpit. From the beginning Sim-Lab products and their extensive reviews, specially on Youtube, got my attention. Still, wasn’t 100% convinced until I attended the 2018 ADAC SimRacing Expo where I tried other cockpits and finally made my mind to get a Sim-Lab GT1 Evo. Its price, constructibility and ease for modification were the essentials for this to be my rig. As soon as I received it, started to assemble it. Was so impressed with the cockpit, its construction cleanliness (workmanship by Sim-Lab A+++) and ease of assembly that I ordered the triple monitor mount, sim (PC) shelf, keyboard tray and speaker mounting brackets. I went all out!!!

    After a week of racing on a daily basis, decided to write this review because this product deserves it. I have not driven this good in my years as a SimRacer. The zero play in all the components have made me a better driver with a shorter reaction time. All the peripherals are anchored (yes… anchored is a better expression than bolted) so tight that there is NO deflection in any of the cockpit members. Can’t say anything more than THANK YOU Richard!!!! By the way, they have the best customer service. Also, I want to give special thanks to Darko. Great job guys!!!

    Excellent products! You can’t go wrong with a Sim-Lab product!

    After spending a lot of time researching simulation cockpits I decided to go with a Sim Lab cockpit. Mainly because of the good reviews and service reputation.

    I own the GT EVO (black) for about a month now and am very happy with my choice. The cockpit is very solid and you can adjust the seating, steering and pedal position perfectly. The service you get is also top notch. I had several question before, during and after receiving the cockpit and was always helped in a fast and kind manner. Packaging was also good. Construction was straight forward after studying the manual. Adjusting the position for the seat, steering wheel and pedals took most of my time.

    Coming from a office chair and desk setup the investment was totally worth it. The FFB is more crisp (even with a G27 that I own now) and somehow it’s easier for me to drive on the limit and catch slides better. The feeling of immersion has improved greatly.

    All in all a great purchase and solid base for further upgrades. Highly recommended.

    I spent a long time researching rigs to go with a Fanatec CSW 2.5 / V3 pedals setup, and after contacting a lot of the different product teams, Sim Labs was by far the quickest, nicest and informative of the lot, which really helped me drop a fairly large chunk of cash with them rather than competitors. Darko especially is an absolute credit to the business, I think my email trail with him must be a 100 replies long by now – many out of hours messages too. If they were local, I would be taking that guy out for beers!

    Anyway, on to the rig. I couldn’t be happier with the GT1-Evo – it’s rock solid, looks superb in black, and relatively cheap compared to some of the bigger offerings (such as the P1). I get absolutely zero flex, and being 8020 its just so adjustable, without much trouble at all. I have it on the caster wheels, which makes it super simple to wheel around my study.

    My one and only suggested improvement, would be the profile to attach the shifter on could be a little bit longer. I find that I have the shifter further away (as I have my seat quite far backwards, and do not want the wheel deck super close to me) than I would ideally like. Pretty minor to be honest, but it’s really the one bit I would adjust. I could no doubt just order a single longer profile from them if I wanted though, and that really is the beauty of 8020 rigs!

      Thanks for the review! 🙂 We might think about to making it 420 mm.

    Having researched for around two years and not being able to purchase a rig due to space limitations, I finally ended up on the GT1 Evo.

    At first it was between the GT1 and P1, but for my requirements (HE Pro/DD) and space available, I landed on the GT1 Evo.

    Though it’s supposed to be a more lightweight model, it’s still rock solid. This upgrade has been quite substantial as I was using a stand that would come up off the floor when catching slides, and now I can drive as aggressively as I want without any worry.

    I am 203cm in height and the Evo fits me in with room to spare. The adjustments available to you with the pedal deck, or at your seat, are enough, maybe even for someone a bit taller!

    These guys always get great reviews for their customer service, and my experience was great. Updates when I asked, and always answers questions.

    They went above and beyond in providing some updated parts, and I am very grateful for all the help.
    If any of my friends want to get a rig, I’ll be sure to point them your way!

    I’m am using the GT1 Evo with a Fanatic CSL Elite and CS V3 pedals. The rig was easy to put together, with some spare pieces that have come in very handy. I’ve been using it for a week or so and couldn’t be happier. It’s very sturdy, and quite heavy when fully equipped, so I would recommend ordering the castors if you want and easy time moving it around.

    I spent a lot of time researching all sorts of rigs, and I’m confident in saying that unless you want to go Dbox and/or a serious direct drive wheel… this rig will be more than enough. And if it isn’t, you can order more aluminium profile and make it perfect 🙂

    Thank you Sim-Lab, here’s to more happy racing!
