Ready to immerse yourself in the world of sim-racing? It’s more than playing video games, and assembling the proper racing simulator setup can be fun, although challenging, especially if you want to take your gaming to the next level. Forget what you think you know about sim racing—you’ll need a dedicated PC, rig, seat, steering wheel and pedals, and our friends at Super Street have released a guide on how to get dialed in properly.
The right hardware is key. Starting with the PC: Skip the full-size tower (or save it for your other gaming needs) and opt for a more compact PC system that’s similar in size to your more traditional game consoles, like the MSI Trident X Plus, which packs plenty of power thanks to its ninth-gen Intel processor. Its chassis allows for optimal ventilation to the graphics card and helps keep the power supply cool. Pretty much the ideal PC solution for any gamer or sim-racer. And don’t forget to pair it with a monitor that can keep up.
Of course, comfort is paramount, especially if you’re going to be racing for hours on end (for those of you working from home) and our range of racing products are great for both actual and virtual racing. Super Street chose our Lesmo One for their sim-racing rig, which is a lightweight fiberglass shell known for its durability in the real world. It also features Airnet materials for comfort and breathability. Additionally, the Lesmo One features high side bolsters to keep your knees slightly raised for long playtime comfort while keeping your body firmly in place. Be sure to do a proper test fit to see which of our seats will suit you best.
