My Ricmotech RS500 / RS1 Build
1 1

2 posts in this topic

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

Near Future Plans

  • Build the console for the shifter
  • Button box built into the console
  • Carpeting the platform
  • Wrapping the rig in laminate
  • T molding on the edges
  • Installing amps and tactile transducers
  • Outfitting some sort of speaker system
  • Adding LEDs and other electronic components for fun
