Qubic System QS 220 PL 4 Actuator System Review By The SRG

Qubic System QS 220 PL 4 Actuator System Review By The SRG

Many sim racers might already be familiar with the Polish Motion Systems brand. Since 2009, the Motion Systems company designs, develops, builds, and assembles a variety of modular, durable, and high-performing motion technology solutions for the professional market.

Back in May 2021, Motion Systems introduced the Qubic System sub-brand aiming to bring the experience and product quality of the Motion Systems company to the demanding sim racing enthusiast.

Qubic System introduced a selection of Motion Platforms, Motion Cockpits, and high-end Sim Racing accessories, ranging from the Qubic System QS-220-PL Actuator Kit to the Full 6 DOF Qubic System QS-S25 Motion cockpit.

Now, Barry Rowland of the Sim Racing Garage takes a dual Qubic System QS-220-PL motion kit through the rigorous SRG review process.

Intro Set


The QS-220-PL Intro Set consisting of two actuators, a power cabinet, and motion controller (QS-MC6) is the perfect solution for all drivers who start their adventure with sim racing and want to come into the virtual world of competition or need a 2DOF as a first motion platform. Undoubtedly, one of the greatest advantages of the Qubic System brand is the ability to seamlessly expand the motion system with an additional actuators kit, quickly and easily creating extraordinary and original motion cockpits in a 3DOF configuration or even 6DOF with additional specially designed accessories.

Extended Set

3DOF Configuration

QS-220-PL Extended Set consists of four actuators, two power cabinets, and one motion controller. The 3DOF configuration is dedicated to all racers who expect the most realistic and precise simulation. Incredible levels of vehicle feedback allow the driver to feel exactly what the vehicle is doing in real time. During the competition, drivers can feel every possible detail noticeable in a real race (including motor vibrations, road surface, bumps, shunting effects, etc.) Due to the 3DOF set, you can feel like a real racing session directly from your home.

Upgrade Set

Upgrade from 2DOF-3DOF

QS-220-PL is designed with upgradability in mind – it is possible to expand your Intro set with another 2 actuators and the power cabinet later. For building your extraordinary motion rig you don’t need an extra PC connector, just connect power cabinets directly to each other. Expand your motion from 2DOF to 3DOF configuration. Additional heave axis delivers oversteer and understeer sensation and gives you more realistic and precise driving experiences.
