Designed for the young sim racer, a simple to build sim rig using a karting seat which is inexpensive & ideal for the young racer. I designed this for my granddaughter who is 3'9" tall & a version for 4'6" tall child, other sizes can be made on request. This rig is built from one sheet of MDF or plywood and inexpensive construction timber.
STEP 1 - Ordering
Choose the Plans, Digital or Physical.
OSR will send you the digital plans normally within 24 hours. The digital plans are released using google drive, this process is 100% manual, so a little patience is sometimes required :-). It helps the process if you have a gmail account, but this is not essential.
If you choose paper version these have a 10 day lead time.
STEP 2 - Wood Selection
We suggest using 5/8" or 3/4" MDF because it's easy to cut & paint Furniture grade plywood can also be used but note that the edge is hard to finish.
- One 4' * 8' sheet of 5/8" MDF
- Two pieces of 2" * 1" * 8' pine or similar construction lumber
- Wood Glue
- Wood screws 1 3/4" long
STEP 3 - Joining Panels
When using MDF, you should NOT attempt to screw into the edge because it will split & will not be very strong.
We suggest screwing 1" pine strips to the edge and screw the side plates into the cross plates using the 1" pine strips.
STEP 4 - Assembling & Cutting
Once all the OSR Plans, Custom Hardware and Shopping List parts have arrived you are ready for assembly. Follow the OSR Plans.
Use your 1:1 scale paper plans on the wood and cut with a jigsaw.
Wood Working Tools
Minimum tools required
- Jig saw
- Circular saw
- Table saw
The assembly process is very straight forward, but you require basic wood working skills. Sorry, we do not provide a step by step assembly guide, we assume you have the required wood working skills for making a simple wood structure.
We supply full scale drawings, full scale layout drawing and full scale print drawing 3' wide so you can print locally.
STEP 5 - Hardware
Mount chosen wheels, pedals, monitors, seat, and hardware (not provided).
