It’s exciting to see what 80/20 Builders design and create using 80/20 profiles and parts.
Check out this sturdy yet portable racing simulator Stephen made with 80/20 stuff!
Stephen looked to 80/20 because “I could build exactly what I wanted with no compromise;” all the retail options he found involved having to give up either strength or mobility.
He used a combination of 10 and 15 series profiles to keep the simulator light but solid without over-kill and notes that “structure-wise I realized I didn’t need to go with the 15 series everywhere to get the rigidity I wanted.” Stephen wanted to get a feel for the product before and during his build so he visited a distributor and interacted with the profiles, parts, accessories and tools on the demo gurney.
Stephen noted that “I couldn’t have done what I did without having the hands-on.” It is a great way to help in the design and decision-making process before investing resources.
He also valued the fact that the distributor had stock profiles and parts saving him considerable money in shipping costs.
The versatility of 80/20 allowed Stephen to build a design with all of his specific requirements; look at the inverted pedals and custom steering wheel!
Stephen also found the flexibility and modularity enabled by fastening plates to be crucial to his design; he wanted to be able to reconfigure and adjust his simulator to obtain optimum positioning and allow for new parts or accessories.
