Description

P1 chassis – Improved rigidity, more custom bracket, leaner design, Sim-Labs new chassis especially suited for Direct Drive steering systems. The uprights are connected by “sandwich” plates, 10 mm thick aluminium, which is easy to use and makes a solid connection. The pedal deck is easily adjustable with locking levers and can be tilted.

 

Dashboard bracket – The dashboard wheel bracket can be suited to fit any Servo (Mige, Bodnar, Lenze, Fanatec CSW), see the pull-down menu on the right. Dashboard wheel bracket is not designed to be used with Fanatec CSL setups. With the 2 pivot points mounted to the frame, the angle of the steering column can be changed. The dashboard bracket provides more leg room than traditional bracket mounting, which helps improve comfort.

 

Pedal tray – The pedal tray can be adjusted forward and backwards. It is secured with the locking levers on the side. Also, it can be mounted with an angle to have the pedals slightly inclined as if wished so.

Connector plates – The uprights are the main focus point when creating a rigid frame. The steering forces are creating a moment at the base of the uprights. Especially with the torque forces direct Drive systems are operating. To counter these effectively,  a play-free connection of the upright is essential. These sandwich plates lock the uprights firmly into place. Because they are easy to install, success guaranteed.

 

Side mount – Standard the P1 is fitted with a shifter/accessories mount, running from the uprights to the back of the rig. Can be mounted both left and right. In addition, extra 2 profiles are provided to add the possibility of multiple configurations.

Spare materials – What is a rig without spare materials to tinker around? To be able to mount whatever you get your hands on after the build is complete extra materials are added. 2 profile pieces, T-slot nuts, different types and sizes bolt.

Key Features:
  • Base structure featuring 160×40 mm aluminium profiles. Special sandwich plates lock the uprights from any movement. High-quality solid joints attach the dashboard bracket to the frame, making it easy to adjust height and angle of the steering wheel.

    The P1 chassis looks fantastic. Solid as a rock and exactly as you would expect. With my Bodnar motor, HE pedals and Fanatec shifter solidly mounted, I cannot complain and overall very pleased with the purchase.

    The P1 was relatively easy to build. Takes a few hours to complete but that’s all part of the enjoyment. It’s a relatively simple build despite the lack of instructions and a million screws to negotiate. It might be a bit of a daunting task to a ‘profile rig novice’ especially due to the lack of any instructions. This and the slightly sub-standard packaging is the only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5.

    Good communication throughout and some post build feedback has been discussed with Richard. Some of this constructive feedback may be addressed in the future such as a video of the rig/and or some good close up images online might be a decent alternative to an instruction book.

    Prices are competitive and I would certainly purchase from Sim-Lab again.

    Overall this is an amazing product. I upgraded to this chassis with my new Lenze OSW. I also run Frex hydraulic pedals and it all fits in nicely in a very strong compact form. With the load on the pedals and the osw wheel the chassis has no flex, movement and you feel all the feedback possible from your hardware. The comfort is great and has a big amount of adjustment to suit your preferred style. The quality and design of the chassis is second to none and I can’t imagine you would need anything more. Plenty of scope to add extra mountings for button boxes, telemetry etc.
    Richard was very professional with the purchase and helpful in anyway possible. Shipping was quick and on time. Highly recommend this product if you’re looking to upgrade and move into the high end of sim-racing chassis design.

    Bought the Sim-Lab P1 chassis (and the triple screen brackets) a few weeks ago. After extended testing I feel ready to add my review.
    In short: this is an AWESOME chassis…
    I owned three sim racing chassis (Playseat Revolution, RaceRoom 2000 and Simetik K2) before and I have tested and tried several others, but this thing literally beats everything (I tried) by miles.
    Richard is a very communicative guy, very helpful, no issues here.

    The chassis arrived in several parcels and agreeing with Stephen’s review, the parts deserve better packaging. There were some marks (nothing bad though) and one profile had a little ding, but I could mount it in a way the ding is hidden.

    Since it was my first 80/20 rig, I expected some difficulties to put everything together, but as it turned out, all went fine. The sliding nuts Richard uses makes it possible to add whatever you want (or if you forgot one), even after the whole thing is assembled. Just click the slider nuts in and there you go.
    The P1 is build like a tank, nothing moves, no shaking, no squeaking noises. For the moment I still have my Fanatec V2 on the rig, but I will be replacing that with a OSW set soon. Even that kind of torque will never disturb the P1. I could add the Fanatec V2 feels a lot better on this chassis, FFB is more detailed.
    My triple 27″ setup (attached with Richard’s bracket set) does not move or shake either… VERY HAPPY with that too. The whole set looks very compact and tidy, but it is very spacious. The distance between the two vertical supports is a whopping 60 cm !! while my Heusinkveld pedals look a bit lost on the equally wide pedal tray. On my previous rig there was even no space next to the pedals…
    Very nice design.
    Enough spare parts included to attach some more peripherals (button boxes, surround speakers, shifter)…
    One word about the shifter mount: the way it is attached on the pictures is not possible. I have a Fanatec CSS/SQ for which I made my own shifter plate to attach it to the horizontal side bar. No need for the two short profiles. I could have drilled some extra holes in the Sim-Lab shifter plate, but as I had a piece of alu plate lying around, I chose to make my own.
    After finishing the chassis I still have lots of bolts and nuts in different sizes in reserve.
    Still have to install tactile transducers, but even the little rumble motors in the Fanatec steering wheels can be felt troughout the whole chassis, GREAT !

    Highly recommendable !

    Richard is really professional and communicative guy.
    Cockpit is solid like a rock with serious design,don’t move with big mige/HE pro pedals
    Some marks on profile,but I can’t take off one star for that…
    Keep the good work,
    Marc.

    The P1 is an incredibly solid racing rig.The entire platform is infinitely adjustable too. Included is an ample supply of extras to put your own twist on things. So as not to be even more repetitive in my accolades, let me say that I echo the comments of the other reviewers. Shipping to the US was incredibly fast, waiting for stock to arrive to ship out was another issue. If you are in a similar situation, it will arrive and you’ll be well pleased. Competitive rigs are much more expensive and I’m not sure outside of the type of powdercoating that I see a difference. I may apply a CF wrap to the dash bracket to dress it up a bit, but the standard black finish is utilitarian and invisible. Richard is devoted to prompt replies and will keep you informed before and after the sale.

    I had very high expectations from this rig and I must admit they have been surpassed.

    The build itself is pretty easy, I found the lack of instructions no issue at all. If you take a look at some reference pics, you will be easily able to put the P1 together. If you keep using common sense this build is a lot of fun, the questions I had were quickly answered by Richard. I’ve been using it with a Small Mige and nothing moves, nothing flexes, just rock solid.

    I bought the P1 Chassis from Sim-Lab and I am very satisfied. Rig is very stable and even under extreme torque and movement from DD wheel, steering mount holds it motion free. Adjustability is also excellent. Materials arrived in good shape and one I figured how to work with 80/20 stuff, it wasn’t difficult. Richard is very good with returning emails and answering questions.He also handled a delay at the US customs with aplomb.

    This is probably the best Sim rig out there interns of adjustability and stability. It looks pretty good too!!!

    Monitor mounts are on the way and I will review them once they arrive!!

    Thanks Richard for a great product and good customer service.

    The P1 is solid as a rock, build like a tank. Although intended for direct drive wheels I currently mounted a Thrustmaster T300rs, Richard adviced me to use a different slot profile. T3PA pro pedals were mounted using some extra washers. During the process of the build I repeatedly contacted Richard and he always responded very quickly with good advice. Every rig is different and the build itself was fantastic, a matter of logical thinking (although it could be facilitated a bit more with some basic description, however that may take away part of the fun). For now I’m futureproof (direct drive wheel, better pedals) and this will be my first and last sim ‘rig’! For an extensive review: https://youtu.be/EpDjbymPTcc

    Hi guys,
    I´ve bought the P1 Rig some weeks ago and finished my built last week. I am absolutely overwhelmed right now! Fantastic Rig with an amazing stiffness and many possibilities for personal adjustment and additional options! It is very rigid and rock solid. Perfect suitable for my 20Nm Mige Motor and the Heusinkveld pro Pedals. No flexing or bending at any point. One interesting point is the size because it is big enough for large people but not too big to fit in your hobby room or even living room. I recommend any potential customer the seat slider (Sparco product), seat brackets and the heel rest made from stainless steel which Richard offers. It´s very simple to drive with several people without spending to much time on adjusting the seat position.

    The P1 comes with a load of spare bits and pieces and some extra profiles for additional needs which I really appreciate.

    Communication with Richard and service are outstanding! Very generous gesture from him to add the cup holder and some other small things to my order! Also for my shipment to Germany he was able to reduce the shipping costs a bit.

    Only thing I was a bit unhappy with is the delivery time (still ok / in between 2-3 weeks) and packing for the profiles because they came on direct shipment from his supplier. Nothing to do directly with Sim-Lab. But Richard assured me to change these points in future!

    Next point is the setup manual. For me, no problem but for people which are new to Sim Racing and Rig building I guess the will struggle because of lots of bags with screws and stuff… Maybe Sim-Lab will improve the manual soon.

    Anyway, I can 110% recommend Sim-Lab products and the service!

    Very best regards
    Dominic from Germany
