Introducing The New V-Rig Simulator Chassis

Our resident AussieStig, got the scoop on a new and exciting sim racing chassis by UK based manufacturer V-RIG. They have introduced their in-house designed ultra adjustable V-RIG R1 sim racing chassis. This uniquely styled rig features up to 13 axis of extreme adjustability enabling the rig to morph from a formula seating position to GT within seconds.

The V-RIG R1 chassis and its add-ons are available via the official V-RIG webstore for a surprisingly competitive £999.00 / €1081.00 / $1163.00 + Shipping. *items marked in stock are ready to ship next day.

11 AXIS Extreme Adjustability

By utilizing a unique rig expansion mechanism, the length can be stretched far beyond the usual adjustments of most rigs on the market. This ability allows multiple seating styles to be configured regardless of height. All adjustments are quick release allowing you to completely change the driving style and feel of the rig in moments.

Main Rig

  • Seat stage 2 distance adjust via master front and back rig expansion: 53cm

Pedal Deck

  • pedal deck height adjust: 26 cm
  • pedal deck angle adjust: -52 to + 20 degrees (pedal deck has to be 8 slots and above to achieve -52 degrees of rotation)
  • pedal deck stage 1 distance adjust: 20cm (qr expansion adjust)

Steering Deck

  • steering deck height adjust: 17 cm
  • steering deck angle adjust: -30 to + 45 degrees
  • steering deck stage 1 distance adjust: 25cm (QR expansion adjust)
  • steering deck stage 2 distance adjust: 20cm (QR handle glide runners)
  • total steering deck distance adjust: 45cm

Seat

  • Total seat distance adjust combined with stage 2 system(53cm): 72cm (total combined adjustment of seat and main rig front to back expansion system)
  • Seat height adjust: 14cm
  • Seat angle adjust: -25 to + 25 degrees

*Rotation angle that is achievable will vary depending on the height position of the particular part

Quick Release

Seat Position Formula

The expansion system allows the rig to be stretched far beyond that of a standard rig, allowing a completely authentic formula position to be achieved. The pedals can be raised high using the quick release knobs, steering lowered and brought forward using the dual-stage quick release adjustment system.

The steering wheel deck is adjusted forward using the stage 1 quick-release glide system, then fine adjustments can be made using the quick release stage 2 adjustment.  finally, a quick-release angle adjustment of the wheel deck can be made to suit your wheel and achieve the f1 style wheel angle.

Seat Position – Rally / Touring

All adjustments are quick release allowing you to completely change the driving style and feel of the rig in moments.  this example shows the rig in a setup typically found in a rally, road or touring car.

Gearstick arm option attached with quick-release distance and height adjustment and can be mounted on either side or configured with one on both sides.

Space Saving Mode

Once you have finished your session the rear of the rig can be contracted inwards reducing the length of the simulator.

The system uses a high-quality glide rail, rear wheels and a magnetic locking system ensuring smooth and effortless operation.

Dimensions in space saver mode :

  • length : 136cm
  • width  : 63.5cm
  • height : 102.5cm

Uncompromised Compatibility

Utilizing the extensive adjustment, the rig can be quickly transformed to suit small children and tall adults with an uncompromised seating position.

  • 2 feet – 7 feet  ( 128 cm – 214cm )
  • 2 ft  child to 7ft tall adult

*within the 4.2 ft to 7ft range the rig is able to achieve completely authentic F1, GT and Rally seating positions, however users shorter than 4.2 feet and taller than 7 feet can still use the simulator, only consideration needs to be made for certain aspects of the seating position not being completely authentic to real-world F1, GT, and rally/touring seating positions in these scenarios.
