DriveGameSeat.it – CARBON-RS Cockpit Chassis in Carbon Fiber Profile
Over the years, the Sim Racing hobby has generated a massive market for purpose build Sim Racing Hardware. The days of a modest racing wheel clamped on a desk ar far gone for a lot of us. Those who got infected with the Sim Racing virus will sooner or later be on the lookout for a dedicated cockpit.
There are many turnkey cockpit solutions on the market, which will have you up and running in no time. However, some of us like to take their cockpit dreams one stage further and will go full DIY, or choose a more modular and expandable system such as an aluminum chassis built up out of 80/20 or 80/40 T-slotted profiles. While these are not cheap, they are light and extremely rigid, and with a little imagination, you can just about build anything you can come up with, and expand, or adjust the configuration to your heart’s content.
Now, what if you would want your Profile rig to be even stronger and lighter, or you want something that is more exclusive and Racing styled?
That’s where DriveGameSeat.it comes in the picture. The Italian cockpit company from Verona, Italy introduced their DriveGameSeat CARBON-RS Sim Racing Cockpit which is assembled out of carbon-fiber T-slotted profiles manufactured by www.carbosix.it who retail a range of CarboSix products including 45X45, 45X90 and 90X90 carbon profiles, tubes, round bars, rectangular bars, and sheets.
The T-slotted carbon profiles can be handled in exactly the same way as their aluminum counterparts and can utilize the same accessories, mounting and fastening systems. The CARBON-RS rig is fitted with a host of custom made (ed: and slightly Heusinkveld inspired) adjustable mounting brackets and comes with a quality Racing Bucket Seat in eighter Fabric or PVC leather look.
