  1. Hey guys, I have not been simracing for over a year much lately so I want to turn this stuff into forged wheels for my real car. I'm posting here before I post to iRacing, I've done some business here before and hope we can make a deal here. You can tell there is not a lot of wear on any of this stuff, metal is still shiny, the Alcantara is not matted at all (I would wear gloves too) So, I have some stuff for sale. I'd prefer to not have to ship if someone wants to come to get all of it. I'm glad to ship, though. 1. Accuforce V1 with an extra slip ring. I have a Momo steering wheel with it with the button box attached and carbon fiber shifters. I still have the stock wheel as well, which is nice, too. The Accuforce v1 is the same as the v2 but has the higher quality ($) case and the slipring designed which was dropped for V2. Also comes with angled mounting brackets. Not a ton of hours on this one. Works great. $800.00 - SOLD! 2. HPP PRX-SE Pedals - These things are absolutely gorgeous, I got these before I stopped simming, they have at most 2 hours on them. They work great and come with the kit to change the brake stiffness, along with extra springs, etc. $1200 - SOLD! Here is a link to the page describing them: 3. 4Play Racing Rig - John, the owner called it the GTF1 rig, which is adjustable between an F1 or GT style sitting position. I also have the 3 monitor stand, and some extra 80/20 for increased ridgidity not in the stock model. Also included was the keyboard/mouse holder. I have the original instructions, all hardware, and all of the 80/20 stuff is labeled so you know where what goes where when you are building it. I paid 1650 or so for everything, I'm asking $800. Come get it! Shipping is extra, I would have to break it all down to weigh it and get some idea on shipping but im sure its a couple hundred? I'm sure the seat would be a major bitch to ship. I'm up for ideas, let me know. SOLD! Seat is still available 4. Oculus rift - 3 camera setup 2 hours tops on the rift + touch controllers - $325 I pulled the rig out, there are more parts than pictured, including the triple monitor stand (which is removed, I used Occulus rift) Quick Pics of it all, if you have more requests, just ask

    My First Rig

    Hi, just wanna show the status so far on my first DIY rig. Its build in 80/20 aluminum. Got some help from Lars Buresø who made the drawings in MayCad. Some small adjustments underway. But still long way to go XD. And still learning from my mistakes! My target is an F1 Style simulator with a laydown position. Still trying to hit the rigtig position. Cant figure out how to fit the seat yet. Ideas are welcome. Setup: OSW SimuCube Fanatec F1 Carbon Steering wheel (will get a Simracingmachines USB convertion) and Q1R Quick Release Heusinkveld Ultimate Pedals (No clutch) 4 x ASUS ROG PG279Q 27" 2K IPS (Last one still not mounted. Gonna be used as info screen) PC: i7 7700K 16 GB Ram ASUS GTX 1080 STRIX
  4. 80/20 Rig with SimXperience 3DOF Motion & Traction Loss Updated my static 80/20 rig to incorporate SimXperience's universal seat kit and 150mm SCN5 actuators. The base is 2100mm x 780mm and all in 40 series profile. If you recall, this is my old rig: The final result uses numerous ideas from various other rig designs on this forum and others. I want to give credit to the following people/sites for my rig: Robert Reidel of Henning Piez/Ensonic that created this amazing rig as I blantantly copied his tilt/telescoping steering wheel mount. Tino Goergens and his rig. Faro06's rig. Anonymous rig Results: Transfer bearings: Lazy Susan Bearing: Base (2100mm x 780mm): Traction loss base: SimXperience Universal Joint: Dampening bar isolators: Dampening bar with actuators and seat base: Adjustable foot pedal mount: Seat mounted on base: Tilt and telescoping wheel mount: Wheel mount range of adjustment: Cup holder: Update with 40" 4K Vizio TVs and Energy Micro RC speakers: I still have to wire everything up and configure the software. I'll post a video of it in motion soon. Dan

    BPi GT Sim Rig

    I have been working on a 8020 GT Sim Rig for a few weeks now. My design will start simple and grow to encompass more hardware and immersion over time. I am designing it in a few phases so as to spreads the cost out over time. Design criteria include but are not limited to being a completely mobile sim rig on wheels. The plan is for the entire rig to roll around on wheels and simply plug in power and network. The design will accommodate triple monitors, fixed back race seat, transducers at the 4 corners, 5.1 surround sound, and the essential pedals, wheel and shifter. I am trying to also make efficient use of the 8020 material, yet still create a rig that is extremely robust. I believe I am nearly complete with phase 1 of my 8020 GT sim rig design and I have actually submitted the drawings to a local distributor to get a cost estimate. I am targeting $500 give or take for the 8020 hardware on this phase. Remaining components will utilize MDF to build the pedal platform, wheel platform and seat platform. Current gear includes Logitech G27 kit, a new PC I am building, C5 Corvette OE seat and triple 27" Asus VN279Q monitors. Please take a look at my design. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, as I get closer to pulling the trigger. Subsequent phases of the design will include cantilevered shelves to support PC (horizontal case), home theater receiver and amps for transducers, support structure for surround speakers and sub-woofer, as well as replacing out some of the MDF for 8020 hardware. Gear upgrades will include HT receiver, Buttkickers, Fanatec shifter and pedals, Corbeau seat, and if I can pull some strings the Simxperience AF Wheel. PDF: BPI SPEED SEAT V2.PDF
  6. I'm reserving this top part to pin my latest build which will be an 80/20 extrusion chassis running a 3DoF seat mover with rear traction loss. My detailed build will be documented and most posted on xsim which links below in my signature. Here is the prototype sketch of the rig itself. The rig will not have triples monitors as it is being built for VR. ************************************************************************************** ************************************************************************************** I've finally decided to throw in the towel on the console racing era and move over to PC. This thread will describe my current and new DIY wooden racing chassis. I'll document what I can and I'm happy to field any questions and welcome any comments you may have on my progress and finished project. Thanks go out to Darin and Shaun for this community and to everyone here that inspired me in different areas of this project. I'll keep this post updated with any new additions and pictures while the posts below will detail the build. Happy racing!

  7. For sale I have a suede style racing seat that I had on my 80/20 chassis which has been sold. This seat has been sitting around for months and collecting dust. I would rather someone get some use out of it and would like to have it sold by Monday 3/12 Would prefer local pick up but buyer must pay shipping which will be expensive if shipped. Asking $85 plus shipping, pricing negotiable.
  8. For sale I have a great condition suede style racing seat that can easily be mounted to an 80/20 chassis with the included slider. Buyer pays shipping which will be expensive due to size. PM me your pricing offers.
  9. Hey guys, I have decided to sell my brand new iRacing dirt simulator. I'll still be playing at my desk occasionally, but the real race car is a priority for my right now. I'd rather pay for engine rebuilds and the real life racing program than focus on a simulation. Not willing to part out right now and would like to sell as a whole. Asking $2,200 (worth $2,500) - Computer NOT included Fanatec Wheel Base Fanatec BMW GT2 Rim Fanatec Handbrake DimSim SEQ Shifter 3 Asus 24" Monitors 2ms 1920x1080 Thrustmaster T3PA Pedals 4play Racing Simulator Chassis Racing Style Suede Seat 4play Racing Triple Monitor stand DSD Button Box SRH Rally Gear Indicator Serious inquiries only, prefer local pick up or meet up.
  10. Hi, I'm new to the hobby and the forum as well. After lots of research I've been looking at picking up a JCL rig: There is an option to add a seat to it at an additional cost of ~ $250 (shipped): I'm in Los Angeles and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on new seat options that are either less money (for similar quality) or the same or slightly more money for a better seat. I'm not needing a reclining seat and comfort and longevity would be the main considerations. If the included seat is of good quality, then I suppose I could just get the complete package. Thanks for any advice in advance. Brian
  11. I'm looking to buy an 80/20 triple monitor stand that will fit 23.6" monitors , 100x100mm VESA Looking to spend about $150
  12. Hi guys. So i am wanting to step up from my playseat challenge, its done me good so far but need a little more. The problem ihave is storage and space. In my head (a busy place 😆) i am thinking i could make an 80/20 cockpit that could have the pedals and wheel fold upto the seat so in reality it would take up no more or little more room stored than the seat footprint. Is anybody any good at 3d drawings and would be able to sketch one up for me as i am pretty useless at that sort if thing. Thanks guys.
  13. Hey all, I have what I believe can be a piece of SIMRacing history up for sale. I am the current owner of 2 VRX Viper Sim Racing Chairs, and they are badge as #002 and #003. These could very well be (other than #001 which would often be the manufacturer's prototype) the 1st 2 rigs VRX put into production for sale. So I am looking to sell #002 or if the offer is right both to keep them together. Prefer someone in the state of FL/GA that could pick up or meet halfway if it makes sense. If you are looking to ship I would have to get a quote and you would pay actual shipping. I will start at offers/bids at $500.00 each, which I feel is very reasonable considering it's a solid rig, and a great talking piece and part of VRX's continued frame base for their current rigs. If anyone is familiar with VRX, please chime in as I would love to hear how these 2 badged rigs came about. Please note: Selling RIG ONLY, Sparco is not included, only in pics so you can visualize a complete rig. I will also update this post with some pics of #003 which is set up in my play room. It does have a cool blue LED light under the chair that in a dark room gives a great ambiance to the room. I also have a used but in working order Buttkicker Concert Sonic Shaker for $175.00 (see pic) These retail new for right around $250 Thanks for the time and please reach out with any questions.

    4play racing cockpit

    Hi guys, im really trying to figure out a way of getting a decent rig with the space i have. Im currently runjing the playseat challenge and it just isnt cutting it anymore. I need to be able to add hardware to it. I have been looking on ebay alot and have come across a rig made from 80/20 and looks like it should fit my criteria. The question is has anybody had any experience with 4play racing from the USA? If so could you let me know your thoughts on service and the product overall. Thanks guys in advance.
  15. Started with Steve Spenceley's basic f1 cockpit plans and let it evolve naturally
  16. Hello guys. . . I was wondering if there is any dealer of this 80/20 tubing here in EU. I was checking online shops but shipping from USA is to high for these kind of products. If anyone knows anything I would be grateful.
  17. Hey everyone, After using a desk mounted wheel setup for 5 years I've finally decided to (could afford to) take the plunge into a dedicated simrig build. Comparing all the different pre-built rigs available from Obutto, GTOmega, RSeats, Playseats etc., I couldn't seem to find anything that really suited my long term needs. I had been drawn to the seemingly limitless customization options of an 80/20 rig, and the added bonus of getting to design and build the rig myself just added to the allure. To begin, lets take a look at what I have been using for the past 5 years. Good god! Please, excuse the disaster. Thankfully it won't be around for too much longer. The rig pictured consists of a G27, 3x 24" Samsung monitors, an additional 32" Samsung TV with Ipad mount attached, and a number of other peripherals not specific to simracing. Needless to say, the desk didn't get much use as an actual desk. I based my design off of Giospeed Designs cockpit, with some personal alterations to reduce cost. Here are some Sketchup images of the design. For the record, I am 5'11" 175 lbs. The rig was designed around these dimensions, so if you follow any of these design sketches then make sure to take your own personal height and weight into account. The sketchup design allowed me to get precise 8020 lengths as well as accurate counts of the number of screws, nuts, plates and gussets for the rig. I ordered all of my 8020 extruded aluminum members from the 8020 Inc Garage Sale - eBay Store. The prices here were cheaper than on the 8020 catalog website. The initial intention was to spend as little money as possible on 8020, but not compromise the design aesthetic and customization options. Black 8020 was what looked best to me, however the price difference over regular aluminum lead me believe I would end up with a standard aluminum color rig. HOWEVER, I managed to score some overstock black 40-4040-Lite Black for even cheaper than the standard aluminum!! Yeah! (Note: not all pieces pictured. Still waiting on some backordered 8020 members.) In an attempt to save money I decided to order full length 8020 members and cut them myself. After looking online I saw many suggestions to use a miter saw or table saw with a carbide tipped blade. Well... I don't have access to a miter saw or table saw so I decided to do it the hard way and use... A hacksaw and miter box! With the use of some clamps and a little elbow grease I managed to cut through the aluminum with relative ease and minimal sweat. DISCLAIMER: If you have access to a miter or table saw, use it! After the cutting, the next necessary step involves a 9.5% double ipa, just for good measure. After making a few cuts I began to assemble the main rig rails and seat mount. One of the major downsides of a simracing hobby is that you don't really have the opportunity to test any of the equipment before you buy it. I was hesitant to order a seat that I had never sat in, but after a little research and some interrogation of popular twitch streamers I decided to buy the DXRacer seat. It comes with an adjustable recline and seat slider, and so far seems very comfortable. I havent finished cutting all of the 8020 members yet. So far all I have put together is the seat base and main rails. Some shots of the progress so far: This is all I've got for now. Stay tuned for more progress on the build! If you've got any questions please feel free to ask away.
  18. So I already own a wheel stand, the grandstand wheel stand, which is made of 80/20 aluminum tubing. I want to add some parts to mod but I can't seem to find stores or dealers (or at least clear info) in Canada that sell 80/20 or other sizes to the public, in reasonable size/price. I looked up and the price was going up to 350, even 400$. I also checked Home Depot, Home Hardware etc.. but these guys, at least in my region (extended to stores that were 2-3 hours away) didn't have any tubing of that nature on there websites. Is extrusion tubing always that expensive (must vary on size and length) but I can't believe it's always that expensive. If anyone in Canada (I'm in Quebec) as an answer for me, I'd be greatful.
