Hello Everyone! I'm just getting started in sim racing and thought I'd share my rig and ideas with those who might find it interesting. This is the RS500 (also known as the RS1 if you use a Logitech wheel) from Ricmotech. While this is just the start, it's currently in a usable state, so I figured I'd share it as is. I'll make sure to update the lists below and add more images as I work on the build. If you can think of anything that might help improve the build or would be nice for a noob to know, I'd be happy to hear from you Main Components RS500 chassis from Ricmotech (DIY build) Thrustmaster T300 RS GT wheel Thrustmaster T3PA Pro pedals Thrustmaster TH8A shifter DIY handbrake Sony 42" TV NRG racing seat Build Videos Part 1 - RS500 Main Rig Build Part 2 - RS500 Console and Mounting Hardware DIY Bass Shakers (Tactile Transducers) Near Future Plans Button box built into the console Carpeting the platform Wrapping the rig in laminate T molding on the edges Outfitting some sort of speaker system Adding LEDs and other electronic components for fun
Ronin posted a topic in Sim Gear - Buy and SellHey guys, I'm looking for a Ricmotech Th8a sequential mod plate if anyone has one they are not using please let me know. Also looking for the Ricmotech realistic shifter mod for the Th8a. I am hoping to find these used or at a discount. Please let me know if you have either (or both) of these and would be willing to part. Thanks -
aeioux posted a topic in Thrustmaster ModificationsHey guys, I recently bought the TACTILE-FEEDBACK SEQUENTIAL SHIFT MOD PLATE from Ricmotech and I'm disappointed. PLEASE NOTE I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT THE SHORT THROW SHIFTER MOD Once assembled, the shift action is INCREDIBLY tough to perform - moreso in UPSHIFTS (towards the driver). I've actually reversed the little dubrey mechanism inside the unit, which helped a small amount. But I need any advice from people with the same issue ; has anyone used GREASE on this mod to help with a slightly less physical (and noisy) action? ++ UPDATE - I bought 2 x different size springs to fit inside the inner mechanism but neither were ideal size ++ It's so strong it will literally break my rig (F1GT) or the TH8A if the loud bangs when I use it don't piss off the neighbours first.... I've reached out to Ricmotech directly for support/advice but no reply yet. Many thanks, Chris/aeioux
