Description Technical Specs Manuals
Want to build your own RS1 driving cockpit? Now you can have a complete set of instructions and cutting templates and build your own. Best of all, you can customize it with your own graphics and modify it to mount your own gear.

One of the best DIY designs of all timeThe RS1 is a CAD designed sim-racing cockpit built from wood, but with the quality and design features of commercial rigs. The RS1 is a simplified version of our Cheetah series of racing simulators, and is designed to be easy to build with common woodworking tools. The RS1 is a "2-post" design, meaning there are no supports between the driver's legs that can interfere with proper heel-toe driving. Also, the RS1 allows the driver to easily get in from the side like in a street car. There is no climbing necessary as with other racing simulators.

The RS1 can be slid in front of a TV or the built-in monitor deck can support a monitor or flat-screen TV up to 40 inches. The latest revision now includes a template for adding a monitor support to the chassis which permits a TV or monitor to be mounted at eye level by using a wall mount bracket wall mount bracket (available here). The RS1 has plenty of room underneath the platform to house surge suppressors, power supplies, even a tactile shaker (available here) and its amplifier. The RS1 is designed to be used with the Logitech G25 or G27 wheel, pedal and shifter set (available here). Also, the RS1 is already set up to mount the Logitech pedals in an inverted arrangement. The inverted position is preferred over the factory arrangement because it mimics real street cars. Note: The Logitech pedals will have to be disassembled in order to mount the pedals inverted. No permanent damage is done by dismantling the pedals and they can always be reassembled if they are later to be removed from the RS1.

You will have to provide your own seat for the RS1. You can purchase a racing seat for an authentic look or you can get an OEM automotive seat from a salvage yard. The OEM seat is often a better choice because they are more comfortable, are upholstered with better breathing materials (cloth or leather), often have more adjustability, and are typically less expensive. Most junkyards want top dollar for a matching pair of front seats, but when only a single seat is sellable, you can get a great bargain. Remember, you don't really need the driver's seat from the car, the passenger seat will suffice.

This revision of the plans includes the ability to build the racing cockpit in multiple sizes to accomodate almost any size driver and a revised 39-page B/W instruction manual with additional detailed drawings of each step, even more photographs detailing the various steps in the process and full size cutting templates for cutting out all the components. The templates arrive to you full size in an oversize envelope. You simply cut out the paper template and stick it on the wood, then simply cut on the dotted lines. Despite the sleek styling of the RS1, the cutting pattern has been designed to be easy to follow with a basic jigsaw and circular saw. We do not offer downloadable files because printing them to scale is critical and pre-printing avoids errors. The plans are copyrighted and licensed for personal use only. The completed or partially completed RS1 chassis is not permitted to be sold, resold, distributed, mass produced or used in any commercial fashion. The plans may not be reproduced or distributed in any manner. This item is not returnable.

Absolutely perfect April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Joshua Coursey from Jeffersonville, IN United States  
Instructions were very straight forward, and it's way more sturdy than expected, I hung a 50in TV on the monitor stand section and it has no wiggle even under high stress driving. It would be easy enough to add motion to the rig if wanted and the space underneath is more than applicable to put all power supplies and even a buttkicker if wanted. The only thing I would chang about it is making the floor platform about 6" longer as I'm taller and my seat sits edge to edge with the base platform.

Excellent Plans February 27, 2019
Reviewer: Jason from United States  
The plans really helped make the build possible, it would have been much more difficult to build without the full-scale templates. The cockpit is a nice size, it is compact but still comfortable. Having the logitech pedals mounted inverted makes a really big difference and should be strongly considered. I made a few modifications along the way:
- The shifter template is for the older g25/g27 plans, and on the newer g29/290 you don't need to cut out as much material.
- To make it easier to get in and out, I only added one bolt and a stop block to the shifter to allow it to swivel up and out of the way
- I added more top material to the monitor stand so that I could add a clamp style mount for the monitor, which gives more space for keyboard/mouse

Lastly, a tip for the seat: if you aren't going to be buying a new seat, a used panel van seat works excellent. These vehicles have a flat floorpan and need no special mounts, they mount easily to the flat floor.
