Racing Simulator

Customized Experience

It’s exciting to see what 80/20 Builders design and create using 80/20 profiles and parts. Check out this sturdy yet portable racing simulator Stephen made with 80/20 stuff!

Stephen looked to 80/20 because “I could build exactly what I wanted with no compromise;”
all the retail options he found involved having
to give up either strength or mobility. He
used a combination of 10 and 15 series
profiles to keep the simulator light but
solid without over-kill and notes that
“structure-wise I realized I didn’t need to
go with the 15 series everywhere to get the rigidity I wanted.”

From Demo to Creation

Stephen wanted to get a feel for the product before and during his build so he visited a distributor and interacted with the profiles, parts, accessories and tools on the demo gurney. Stephen noted that “I couldn’t have done what I did without having the hands-on.” It is a great way to help in the design and decision-making process before investing resources. He also valued the fact that the distributor had stock profiles and parts saving him considerable money in shipping costs.

The versatility of 80/20 allowed Stephen to build a design with all of his specific requirements; look at the inverted pedals and custom steering wheel! Stephen also found the flexibility and modularity enabled by fastening plates to be crucial to his design; he wanted to be able to reconfigure and adjust his simulator to obtain optimum positioning and allow for new parts or accessories. With 80/20, Stephen says “I can have my cake and eat it too.”
