    Construction – Once I began the build process I found it very logical to construct. I can already see the potential for future upgrades / modifications. The alu profile is easy to work with once you get used to it.

    Strength – 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.

    Weight – My previous rig was made of steel, and was extremely heavy, especially with peripherals added, a real pain to move around. The Sim Lab rig is much lighter, and even with accessories attached I can still move it around.

    Looks – well it looks great, especially with the HE pedals and GS4 seat, very nice indeed !

    Service ! – Above all, the service from Richard has been 100%, really impressive. You are always helpful, and respond to questions even at weekends. I really appreciate that, and it shows you care about your product and your customers. This really sets you apart from others. There have been a couple of minor issues with my delivery, but you have dealt with everything quickly and in a friendly manner, and that means a lot to me in regards of building a long term customer relationship, really great experience for me and I will remain a loyal customer to you because of this approach.

    Just a quick review, solid robust great looking.

    As I’m still in the build process and adding more items daily due to busy work schedule, so far I can only agree with the above review from sam, It’s Another fine item from sim-lab.

    Once I’ve finished my build I will do a full in depth review and include links to photos so people can see how good the products are.

    I love my GT1, and would recommend this for anyone who is serious about sim racing. No regular off the shelve racing cockpit offers the sturdiness or adjustability of an aluminum profile rig. And those two features are the basis of what you need, even if you don’t realise it yet.

    My previous steel cockpit had flex and creaked in the wheelbase, pedal floor and shifter arm. The GT1 is solid, has no flex and noiseless. In fact I’d say my wheel and pedals operate with better force feedback feel and braking accuracy as a result. Nothing is being absorbed by flexing that my odd rig suffered from. My real car doesn’t flex, so for realism why should my sim rig!

    If I knew then what I know now I’d have bought the GT1 in the first place, sadly my lack of experience lead me through a series of upgrades to finally get here, and this is the last sim rig I’ll ever buy, it’s just that good.

    Going back to the GT1, it’s a practical well-designed package. Every part cut to exact measurements, connects easily and the overall size of the built rig is just perfect. It came with loads of nuts/bolts, connecting angle brackets and plastic covers for the sharp aluminum profile ends. I really doubt I could buy all these components much cheaper if I we’re to build my own from scratch, plus the added stress of speccing accurate measurements.

    As for service the guys at Sim-Lab really care about their customers, and have been really helpful and quick to respond to my emails. Great product and great service.

    There was no instructions in package. I print couple pictures and after that assembly was quite easy. It takes about one long evening to build this rig.

    Rig is really solid and you can adjust about everything, so it is really easy to make this fit for You perfectly.

    Customer service is awesome. Richard gives You a tips and answer really quick. Sometimes even midnight in weekends.

    10 points for this product and 11 points for customer service 🙂

    Amazing solid rig. It was lot of fun building it and it is even more fun simracing in it.
    During contruction I got aware of the potential and flexibility for modifications now and for future enhancements and changes.
    It is great how flexible you are in positioning the seat, the wheel, the pedals and all other devices to this rig. I am still testing and optimizing, great fun.
    The rig gets my full recommendation! Not t forget the always fast and very helpful communication with Richard. Thx!

    First off I would like to talk about Richard’s service. Excellent! I highly recommend. He was prompt when answering my many emails and was extremely helpful when it came to any problems. All in all a great experience and I look forward dealing with Richard with future purchases.

    Now for the review. This thing is solid, a well thought out design which allows for so much customisation. Everything lines up and fits well. Despite having no instructions, as a reviewer mentioned above, I just looked at a picture and away I went. Very easy.

    I enjoyed spending plenty of time tinkering around with getting the perfect setup for me. Adjusting wheel height, seat positioning, pedals. Once I got it all dialed in, it makes such a positive difference to comfort and immersion. I feel I can race for longer and lap times are so much more consistent.

    Perhaps the greatest thing about this rig is the ability to add to it. I got Richard to add some castors as I need to slide the rig it in and out of my workstation. I also purchased the HE Shifter and Handbrake mount. In the future I’ll be looking to add a button box, keyboard and mouse tray. Really the options are endless.

    All I can say I am an extremely happy customer!

    Hey, better late than never!

    I have played in quite a few different rigs. This rig is certainly something I can recommend! It is stable like no other, you can adjust it presice anyway and easy to build on if you want yourself 🙂

    And many thanks for all the help, Richard!

    Richard, I would love to congratulate you on this amazing design! The possibilities are endless and the built simplicity is amazing (I received my parts, being impatient, I just looked at the pictures from this page, and built it based on the pictures.. not realising that Richard had already sent me a schematic built). I was smiling cheek to cheek when I first fired up my favourite sim on this rig. It just felt right! The custom plates provided were fantastic too, it allowed for tilt and height adjustments of the pedals and the wheel. In all, a fantastic piece of kit and well worth the price. Thank you!

    Ben ooit begonnen met een playseat, maar kwam er al snel achter dat dit niet mijn ding was.
    Er zat veel te veel beweging in, en piept en kraakt langs alle kanten dus deze maar verkocht en op zoek gegaan naar wat anders.
    Tijdens het googlen kwam ik op de site van sim-lab terecht en zag ik de GT1 rig staan.
    Na wat vragen via de mail aan Richard, die trouwens snel reageerd en gelijk met de goeie antwoorden kwam besloten om deze rig te bestellen.
    Alles netjes en snel ontvangen, het bouwen gaat met technische kunde vrij snel.
    Ik heb de rig nu ongeveer 1,5maand in bezit en heb er al aardig wat uurtjes in door gebracht.
    En kan maar 1 ding zeggen het is een super frame heel stijf en heel veel afstel mogelijkheden.

    Richard bedankt

    Great Rig. Just completed putting mine all together, and coming from an Obutto Rev3 it feels great. The Obutto was a great rig, but with the endless adjustments that can be made, I for the first time feel in a completely correct position and comfort has been greatly improved.

    The strength in the system as already mentioned many times is rock solid, even with my pedals inverted there is no movement whatsoever on them nor the wheel deck. My wheel actually feels much better as nothing is getting dampened by rig flex anymore.

    My shakers also transmit better through the rig than my previous as an added unexpected bonus.

    Finally, hats of the Richard for superb communication and service.

    Supreme Rig. Strong, very adjustable and complete, with a lot of available accessories that makes it simply perfect.

    I have it for five months and I use it every day and I couldn’t be happier.

    The support is fantastic, if you have some doubt or some need, your are answered and supported very fast and effectively.

    The shipment was fast and I received all perfectly.

    I just highly recommend SIM-LAB products for its quality and really superb support.

    Extremely happy customer.
    Richard is great to deal with and very humble.
    The rig stands up to my OSW and HE Pedals many, many times better than my Obutto Revolution, and his pricing is extremely sharp! It was better value to buy from Richard in the Netherlands, than from local suppliers in New Zealand (that’s a long ship!)
    I would highly recommend this rig!

    PS: Probably through me poorly putting it together I had the slightly lateral wobble when the wheel was under high load. I put a sheet of MDF on the back of the uprights with a cutout for my legs and now it is rock solid!

    Hello,

    after my wood rig gets old I wanted something which looks better and is stable. So I found this GT1 Rig. After now 2 Weeks of testing I can just say, it’s fantastic ! I’m a real noob in building things up but this was really easy to build. It took one long night and one morning for the rig and the triple monitor mount.

    Delivery took a bit of a time because of some complications but the Support was always great. It’s a bit dificult to adjust but you can fully adjust it thats also great.
    Very good work from Sim-Lab there. Great support too 🙂
    It really makes fun to drive in this rig and also some friends were excited. I’m sure I will have lot of fun for a long time. And I really can recommend it to everybody who wants a nice and solid rig. 🙂

    The chassis and the monitor stand are great, there are so many possibilities to change things and find the perfect position. I am very happy with my new “car” and building it was so much fun. It took 3 1/2 hour to build everything and one week to find the perfect position, but perhaps if i move my sterring wheel a liitle bit closer it wil be better? No problem it will took 5 minutes. The support is always perfect and very patient.

    I ordered this rig after being recommended by another owner, and I’m so pleased with it. Very, very solid and fully customizable. I have to mention that the seat slider was not compatible with the bucket seat bracket, but thanks to the 2 extra mounting bars that come with the cockpit, i managed to fit it and works great. This tells you how versatile this thing is. It took me 4 to 5 hours to get it built and a couple more to get it “fine tuned”. Quick to deliver and great support from Richard. Recommended!

    Richard was very helpful and fast in recommending this chassis in combination with all the extra parts I needed to mount my gear.
    Building process was actually very easy.
    The slightly more difficult part was mounting the seat due to the seat glider.
    But of course this is a one time issue, when built, the seat glider on this chassis is just perfect.

    The wheel is very easy to mount and has almost no flex, just a little bit in the left right movement.
    There is no flex towards the pedals or the seat.
    You only notice the flex when looking for it, in-game you don’t notice it at all.

    Pedals were very easy to mount and due to the included handles you can very easily and quickly adjust the height, angle and depth of the pedals.
    VERY convenient.

    Very nice product overall and very nice that all the sharp bits can be covered up with the included plastic caps.

    Great product and great service from Richard !

    Don’t know what to add that hasn’t been said in all the other 5 star reviews. Best priced rig I could find after extensive research. I don’t know how they’re making any money off these things either. You can’t build or find a better rig for the price. No suggestions for improvement. This thing is perfect!!! Thanks sim-lab. The best!

    I have had my GT 1 chassis for 3 months now and it is great. It came very well packaged and the profile is high quality. Plenty of nuts and bolts and some spare profiles. It was a simple and fun build process but does take a bit of time. Very adjustable and versatile there is nothing you cant adjust. Richard was very helpful and the purchasing process was smooth. Richard also helped me with extra profiles to build a shelf above the pedals to mount my PC and keep everything looking neat. Love my set up – Thank you SimLab.

    Na jaren van ergernis eindelijk mijn oude playseat vervangen voor de GT 1. Wat een wereld van verschil! Oerdegelijke constructie en het profielen systeem is op vele manieren aan te passen of uit te breiden! Bij het bestellen contact gehad met Richard met de vraag of de oude playseat stoel (tijdelijk) gemonteerd kon worden en meteen perfect geholpen met een simpele maar doeltreffende oplossing. Een klein minpuntje in het geheel was de lange levertijd. Richard baalde hier zelf ook van en heeft dit perfect opgelost! Zeer tevreden over de service en de kwaliteit van de GT 1! Absoluut een aanrader!

    Fantastic Rig!
    Replaced my GT Omega Pro cockpit, which I had to modify it with some 8020 profile to accommodate, Shifters, handbrake, OSW wheel… etc..
    The GT1 is just perfect, solid as a rock with the OSW wheel, and HE Ultimate pedals. Infinite adjustment! I already had the Sim-lad triple mount, so this just makes it a complete package. Instructions could help,(or labeling of parts) but I managed to put it together in about 3hrs, the final adjustments with seat, wheel and pedal mounting took a bit of time. I can’t imagine owning another rig that is not aluminum profile, and this is just a perfect package with tons of versatility.
