    Fellow Xsimulator fans,

    I'm owning a Fasetech Racing Cube RC4 V3.

    Spending lots of hours of racing (Assetto Corsa, ACC, Project Cars 2), driving (American Truck simulator), flying (FSX) and riding (No Limits 2), the more I love the huge force and quick response it applies.

    But as good as the actuators are, the given sitting position was more and more a disturbing factor to me, limiting the immersion of VR.

    Driving in a truck should not be the same as racing a Formula 3 car. Based on that, I did some work to get the maximum immersion out of my Racing Cube.

    So I added additional degrees of freedom to seat, pedals and wheel mount and all with quick mounts.

    I'm happy to present today my, as I call it: RC4 FlexRig by mariachi

    Please see attached slides.

    Yours

    Michael aka mariachi

    As suggested, here some pics from my FlexRig. I hope the pic naming helps.

    Target was to have a SMED like system for quick changes between configurations.

    Project cars 2 LMP2 Spa Night Rain - scary immersive

    It's getting more and more immersive. Scary immersive.

    Last week I visited a friend, having a static rig with a 3 screen setup, similar I've had in the past. Unbelievable how unreal this feels now, after getting so used to RacingCube and VR.

    Here we go, my latest video - have fun

    Assetto Corsa Competizione – Any good with a motion simulator in VR?



    Yes, it is. Immersive racing, feels quite real.
