SimRacingGirl – A Look At The Sim Lab P1-X Rig

Sim Lab hooked up SimRacingGirl with one of their Sim Lab P1-X modular racing rigs. So she takes us on a tour exploring the features of this aluminum profile chassis.

The Sim Lab P1-X sim racing chassis is largely based on the original P1 one chassis. As a long-time requested feature, Sim Lab added the 4 feet brackets for extra stability but kept these optional to keep the price sharp. Additionally, Sim Lab re-worked the pedal tray which now offers a wider range of adjustability.

The Sim Lab P1-X cockpit is available via the Sim Lab Website starting at €699,00 to 799.00 + shipping, depending on the selected options. Check out the official Sim Lab Store page for more details.

Sim Lab P1-X Sim Racing Chassis Black

Key Features:

Pedal Tray

The newly designed pedal tray gives the extra flexibility needed to handle a wide variety of seating positions. It covers movement in all directions including completely flipped around to have the pedals sit on the deck. Also, its configured in such a way that it will accommodate different pedals sets, and the possibility to add an adjustable heel plate which we will release soon.

Connector Plates

The uprights are the main focal point when creating a rigid frame. Steering forces are creating a moment (torque force) at the base of the uprights, even more so with the high forces Direct Drive wheels are operating. To counter these effects,  a play-free connection of the upright is essential. These sandwich plates lock the uprights firmly into place. Because they are easy to install, success guaranteed.

Side mount

Standard the P1 is fitted with a shifter/accessories mount, running from the uprights to the back of the rig. It can be mounted both left and right. In addition, extra 2 profiles are provided to add the possibility of multiple configurations.
