Ricmotech APX 2000 Cockpit Ricmotech

The Ricmotech APX 2000 single monitor sim rig is a new cockpit design from Ricmotech.  Unlike their previous rigs which were plans that you could make yourself from MDF these new cockpits are modular using extruded aluminium.  Like all Ricmotech products this new cockpit comes with lots of adjustability from seating position, monitor tilt and steering wheel position.  All of these adjustments lead to the sim racer having the best and most realistic driving position just like a real GT race driver would.

Great Ergonomics

After lots of research of race and road performance cars, Ricmotech found that most other sim cockpits miss the proper driving position. The Ricmotech APX2000 is designed with racing in mind and is therefore created to mimic the proper driving position. Race cars place the seat low to keep the center of gravity as low as possible while placing the pedals directly in front of the hips for maximum control. So don’t drive in the “truck driver” position when you are really looking for racing simulation.

Many Adjustments

While ergonomics brings every part of the controls within the proper range, it all has to be fine-tuned to fit each driver’s particular body dimensions. The Apex was created to have all the controls adjustable to within the capabilities adjustable in real race cars. Much the same way that a race car if fitted to the driver, this chassis can also be fitted to the driver.

Conclusion

The Ricmotech APX 2000 is another good looking and highly adjustable design from Ricmotech.  The cockpit is compatible with all popular sim pedals and wheels on the market.

    The 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.
