I’ve been busy in the lab designing a sim rig using 4040 extrusion.
The original design was this.
- Seat height adjustable
- Pedal height adjustable with angle
- Separate monitor stand
~10,000b with delivery. Cheaper than a manufactured rig but still pricey.
How can I make it cheaper?
By throwing stuff out that I didn’t need.
So this is the new design.
I realized my Fanatec CSR elite LC pedals worked absolutely fine without any tilt or height adjustment. I didn’t need to make the pedals higher, if anything I needed it to sit as low to the ground as possible.
Re-spec my design the new total cost comes to:
~8,700b = Saving of %15 off the original price.
Importantly, it was sub 10k.
If I need more supports etc I can always add them. So far it seems fine.
