GT OMEGA PRIME Cockpit Video REVIEW
Its racing cockpit is made of a modular aluminum design and has unequaled adaptability, making it appropriate for drivers of varying heights and body types. The GT Omega PRIME Cockpit is prepared for any future upgrades that may be released, and further attachments and improvements are now being developed to meet the ever-evolving demands of the Simracing community.
Fully Adjustable and Modular
The cockpit features a sturdy steel frame that can withstand the rigors of intense gaming sessions, as well as a comfortable bucket seat that can be adjusted for the perfect fit. The pedals and wheel mount are also fully adjustable, allowing you to customize your setup to your exact preferences.
In addition to its durability and adjustability, the GT Omega Prime Cockpit also features a sleek and stylish design that will look great in any gaming setup. Whether you’re a professional racer or just a casual gamer, the GT Omega Prime Cockpit is the perfect choice for an immersive and enjoyable racing experience.
The framework is made of extruded aluminum, which has been anodized black for a more polished and expert appearance. This material is both sturdy and functional. This particular style of frame makes it possible to set everything precisely where you want it to be without affecting the frame’s strength or stability. Aluminum profiles are very thick as well as the mounting plates.
The installation did not take up a lot of time (around 3 hours), particularly if you prepare the contents of the boxes (there are three of them) before beginning the process, which was the case. A footprint of slightly less than 140 centimeters in length and 60 centimeters in width is created by the rig thanks to the presence of two main long rails and two cross-sections. The seat was shipped in a separate box, and as of right now, you can get the rig pre-configured with either the RS6, RS9 or the XL RS racing seat.
However, you do have the option to put in your own seat; if you do so, you should pay attention to the dimensions, even though most things are pretty standard around here. To come back to the installation process, everything is fundamentally linked using these right-angled brackets, bolts, and t-nut plates, which then slide into the rails and are clamped tight from the inside using a bolt. This is how everything is connected. With or without the inclusion of those right-angled brackets, the rest of the components, such as the seat, are attached in this manner.
Modifications (be aware)
You are able to move these upright profiles back and forth thanks to the side plates that latch onto the side rails. However, you should keep in mind that it is not so easy to align everything, and that it does require a lot of force to be moved around. Additionally, you should make sure to loosen the bolts enough so that you do not end up scratching the frame when something else is pressed against it and you start dragging it in a different direction. If you need to change anything later on, it might turn into a problem if you don’t pay additional attention while you’re putting up the rig to make sure that everything is where you want it to be, to double-check the measurements, and to make sure that the leveling is good.
As a general matter, everything may be moved in such a manner, even the mounting rails for the seat, but the seat itself can, of course, be moved backward and forth in the customary manner since it sits on its own rails. Back here, you’ll note that there’s a cross-section that joins one side to another. This not only makes the whole rig even credit, but it also allows you to put those cross rails for the seat in place. This side L bracket, which has the job of making mounting accessories more adaptable, also makes it a little bit more sturdy than it otherwise would be. Shifters, handbrakes, before all of that, for which you will again get this nice thick metal plate with different predrilled wholes and patterns, and of course the rest of it, like a keyboard or cup holder and so on, your ability to do DIY projects is the only limit here as there is an easy option of mounting things onto it. I have put my Fanatec GT DD PRO and Fanatec V3 pedals on the cockpit with ease.
Although the dimension are around 60x 140 cm I would still recommend adding more space to each side and round the total space to 2.00 m2 or 100 x 200 cm.
Strong, capable of withstanding any stresses and inputs coming from the wheel as well as your moving body without breaking a sweat and with almost little flex at all. Simple as that, the PRIME is named PRIME for a reason. Solid build with no flex what so ever.
