Ricmotech got its name with the RS1 Do It Yourself sim chassis many years ago.  I have built one myself and I have met countless of other sim racers who have conquered the same challenge.  Since then Ricmotech has expanded into one of the premiere after market product makers in sim racing.  Their lineup includes modifications to the ever popular Logitech and Thrustmaster wheels and pedals.  It also includes stand alone products such as button boxes and hydraulic pedal sets.

I sat down and interviewed Frank of Ricmotech to talk about the history behind the company and some of the thought process behind some of his great products.  It is always such a pleasure to meet the people behind the companies, especially someone like Frank who makes himself very accessible to his clients and potential customers.  He is one of the rare cases of someone who actually has all of their contact information right on their website.

I recommend painting it with an oil based primer first, then you can use any type of paint on it. The other option is to wrap it with a vinyl wrap. I would still paint the edges first, then the large areas can be wrapped with a carbon fiber pattern vinyl or custom graphics.

Hey Shaun:

I was hoping to participate in the next race and on Simracing System it says it's at Fuji. Which version of Fuji should I download.

Thanks!

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?
