Description

P1 chassis – The ultimate sim racing cockpit in terms of adjustability, expandability and rigidity. It’s highly suited for Direct Drive wheels and will endure a lifetime of sim-racing. The revised front mounting construction now features a 15 mm laser cut front plate which is extremely stiff. The wheeldeck supports all common racing wheels. In both cases the wheel can be adjusted up and down and tilted to achieve the exact right position. The overall rigidity of the sim rig ensures no force feedback is lost and remains crisp and vivid just how sim racing is meant to be. Pedal flex is absent which helps to get your muscle memory right in the zone. The pedal-deck can be adjusted by loosening the handles on the side and move it forward or backward.

Dashboard bracket (*NEW 15 mm*) – 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. The new design of the dashboard bracket features a 15 mm front plate which eliminates all flex even under the highest loads. With the side plates it can be adjusted up/down, front/back and tilted back and forward. The dashboard bracket provides more leg room than traditional bracket mounting, which helps improve comfort and overall improves the look of the cockpit.

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, up to 19 degrees, to have the pedals slightly inclined if needed.

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, such as t-slot nuts, different types and sizes of bolts.

    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

    This rig is simply the best thing on the market. I was going with the single monitor brackets and using Fanatecs CSW and pedals. It’s very versatile and rock solid, nothing moves, nothing shakes. A nice cable management was never so easy as one can hide quite all cables in the slots of the profiles, looks really neat.
    If you’ve ever played with LEGO, you will be able to build this rig in a few hours, even without instructions. Look at the pictures online and you’ll be fine.
    Seat recommendation: Sparco R333 ( I’m 190, 93kg)
    Shipping was okay. Took a few weeks and was not complete (both probably because of upcoming holiday). But for the rig: buy it, you will not get anything better! Thanks Sim Lab!

    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

    I’d been contemplating a ‘proper’ sim rig for some time and spending an age investigating the various options. I was just quite literally just a couple of mouse clicks away from purchasing an RSeat N1 when, during a last minute read, I came across a post on a forum that happened to mention Sim Labs. The idea of an 80/20 set up hadn’t really appealed for no other reason than I thought it was going to be really costly and ‘out of my league’ in terms of the work required to put it all together. However that view started to change the more I looked in to what Sim Labs were offering and specifically their P1 product, (along with a few accessories) and the associated costs. It also looked good and had a pretty compact footprint, which was appealing considering where I wanted to put the rig as I could more comfortably maximise the space I had available.

    So I fired off an email and spent the next few days asking numerous questions, which Darko answered extremely quickly and in detail. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he basically ‘sold’ the idea to me without pressurising me in any way. Without doubt, on the strength of the quality of service alone and the promise of ongoing support, I placed an order confident and excited that I had made the right decision.

    From that point onwards communication remained first-class as various consignments of profile, fixings and accessories were either dispatched directly from Sim Labs or drop-shipped in to me. At each stage I received clear notification from Darko as to what had been shipped along with tracking information from the various carriers. Delivery of everything took approximately three to four weeks but I had no issue with that as it gave me plenty of time to completely redecorate and freshen up the new ‘man cave’ in readiness! Everything arrived extremely well packaged and fit for purpose, barring one or two marks on some of the profile but I kinda expected and it was minimal and easily hidden so I didn’t lose any sleep over it.

    On to the build itself and whilst the number of structural parts is fairly minimal, you are supplied with a ton of fixings of different sizes and gauges, not just for the rig assembly but for mounting wheels, shifters, pedals etc. This was pretty daunting to a ‘newbie’ especially as the available assembly instructions are limited to say the least and the bags containing the various bolts and mounts are not clearly labelled. That is however my only bit of constructive criticism of the entire process and I know that the guys are working on improving that. Indeed it’s almost unfair to mention it as the support provided by Darko and Richard was first rate and rapid, whenever I required clarification. In all honesty as well a big part of the experience was taking your time, having a cold beer to hand and actually figuring it all out and I got a real sense of satisfaction seeing everything come together and working through a few issues I had in terms of mounting one or two bits and pieces. The beauty of 80/20 as well is that you can add your own ideas and with the spare profile and mountings provided I was able to do this. The end result is a product which looks great but is highly functional and adjustable, is built like a tank and one which houses my triple monitor / VR set up, Fanatec gear, surround-sound system and motion platform solidly and dare I say, perfectly!

    To conclude I honestly could not be any happier with my purchase and the end-result and am ‘over the moon’ that I chose Sim Labs. Apart from the whole ordering and build experience being hugely rewarding, I know that I have a top class product, which will last me for many, many years. And the driving itself, cocooned in a dedicated, rock-solid chassis, is absolutely epic!

    So thanks Guys! Keep up the good work and I wish you every success.

    I can honestly say that this has been one of the best buying experiences I have had to date purchasing anything sim related. These guys go above and beyond to keep the customer happy. Every email was replied to almost instantly no matter what time of the day (and there were quite a few lol). Richard and Darko are two of the most helpful guys no matter what the query.
    The rig itself is built like a tank. No movement whatsoever. I know a couple of people have mentioned lack of instructions, but it is straightforward to assemble. Personally, I didn’t need to look at the schematics. The pictures on the listing were reference enough for putting it together.
    Once fully assembled, there are more than enough extra fittings supplied to add on any extras that you may need (button boxes and the likes).
    Thee were a couple of hiccups regarding shipping, although this was down to the suppliers and not Sim-labs fault, but that being said, everything was well worth waiting on, and I had the rig up and running before the holidays as promised by the guys.
    I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the P1 rig to anyone, or anything from Sim-lab for that matter, and I will be buying from them again in the not so distant future.
    Keep up the good work guys, and all the best for the future.

    This is a very solid rig. I am using a bodnar 52, HE ultimate pedals, HE handbrake, HE shifter,NLR Motion Platform V3 and 4 Buttkickers Mini LFE.
    With my previous rig (a GT Omega PRO) the rig would flex quite a bit. With the P1 there is no flex at all which makes all the difference.

    As I wanted to be able to get a GT driving position I asked Richard if he could alter the P1 so that I would be able to adjust the height of my pedals. For a small surcharge I now have a P1 with a pedal deck that is fully adjustable. This makes it very comfortable to drive. An added bonus is that it gives me the option to store the Buttkicker amp & FFB controller below my pedals for a much cleaner look.

    Had to wait about 3 weeks for the rig to arrive but that info was shown on the website at the time so I knew that in advance. Richard is a very helpful guy and will do anything to satisfy his customers. A few things went wrong when taking delivery of the rig however. After notifying Richard he made it right, right away!

    Putting it all together is very easy. Just a bit of common sense is all that is required.

    Pricewise it is very competitive. I was in the process of designing my own rig when I found out about Sim-Lab. In the end I went with Sim-Lab as the difference in price was negligible, I wouldn’t have had the nice wheeldeck and monitor mount and I had the certainty that it was a proven concept.

    Very happy I went the Sim Lab Route! Highly recommended!

    This is my first sim rig so i cant compare to others but as everyone has expressed, its amazing, solid as a rock and versatile, i can adjust it to suit my 5 year old son
    Apart from a great product i cant talk highly enough of the customer service from Darko and Richard, outstanding in every way.
    Im in Australia so everything was done via email, i had heaps of questions and some minor modifications from standard which were all handled seamlessly, they even sent me a parts list to see if i could source parts cheaper locally to save me money
    Thanks heaps for a very positive experience Darko and Richard!

    Top notch quality and a very sturdy rig, couldn’t ask for more. Coming from Obuzzo Ozone I have to say this was a huge upgrade. You can adjust everything to the millimetre and find the perfect driving position suitable for you. Got mine with front wheel mount (I have large mige), 10cm wheel extension piece and the triple screen mount which is mounted on the rig. First time ever I’m able to pull the displays right behind the wheel on the correct height. Side arms not sagging at all, displays are rigidly at their place. Highly recommended!

    After a long search for a rig that meets the needs of me and my son.
    We found the company, Sim lab and have gone for the P1.
    This rig is pretty pricey but if you are going to compare it with other companies that offer something equivalent, then the price is not bad.
    I needed a bigger seat because I am a big man, I tried a few different seats at Biesheuvel autosport and went for the Sabelt Tital Max. Thanks Biesheuvel for the hospitality.
    It was no problem to put this seat in the P1 bundle.
    After I picked up the seat I went to Sim lab and picket up the P1.
    Richard was very helpful.
    The P1 looks fantastic and it fits my (tiny) space that I had for it.
    The rig was pretty easy to build. It took me a few hours with some help from Richard. Even on Sunday he answered my questions.
    Me and my son (7 years) are very happy with this rig.
    Thanks Sim Lab.

    I have searched the internet for quite some time for a sturdy rig to go together with a large Mige OSW wheel. I really hate flex and squeaky sounds so it had to be rock solid. After reading a lot, watching videos and making comparison list, it was clear that I wanted the P1.

    The assembly was easy with the video of the Sim Racing Garage review of the P1 and after a long test-drive I can say, it is absolutely perfect. Because of the simple and elegant design the P1 not only looks fantastic, it also helps (I think) to make it as solid as it is and free of any unwanted noise.

    I tested it with the wheel on 30 Nm and felt no flex or heard any noise from the rig (or maybe I was just too busy holding on to the wheel :o). Also the pedal tray is as solid as it can be. With my old seat (Playseat) the pedal plate would bent a lot under heavy braking (HE pedals) but with the P1, again no flex no noise.

    So needless to say I am very happy with the P1 and I can highly recommend it without any hesitation. This also goes for Sim-Lab, they are very helpful and very flexible when it comes to customer wishes, so a special thanks to them for all the help and the great products they make.

    Bought the P1 chassis a while ago and it’s really fun to build it. Richard got some good ideas how to mount my extra hardware.

    With my old single profile I had some fibration in my screen from my buttkicker and osw. With the p1 I can feel the difference and it’s more sturdy. No shaking anymore.!

    I can recommend a Simlab product to anyone.

    Thanks for the good advice and keep up the good work.

    I have just purchased this P1 cockpit in july 2018. I have got to say what an absolutely stiff, rigid no flex cockpit this is. I would say most people will be buying this to mount there DD wheel onto, i got the front mount version with the new 15mm bracket, i have the 20nm midge OSW motor, Heusinkveld Pro pedals and the Heusinkveld shifter. I just cannot believe how stiff this frame is. I don’t think you will get a better frame for more or less money than this. Darko came up with a custom screen frame for me to bolt onto the risers that hold the motor. I cannot use VR or 3 screens as i suffer motion sickness so he came up with a solution that is very easy and comfortable to use, it sits right behind the motor. There is no flex or any kind of shaking whatsoever so thanks for that Darko. I have 4 buttkickers mounted as follows 1 under the seat, 1 under the pedals, and 2 either side of the side rails on the back. I use simvibe to power the shakers through 3 amps. Since i mounted them to the P1 my tactile response from the shakers is massively improved because of the stiffness of the frame, all the tactile feel is just amazing with ZERO distortion. 100% improvement over my last rig. Without hesitation i would recommend this P1 frame to anyone who wants a solid good looking professional cockpit that they can mount whatever wheel, pedal,shiftervcombo they like. There customer service is fantastic, i sent darko many emails and he answered everyone without fail. So in summary, if you have a top end wheel, pedal, shifter system this is the rig to bolt them too
