Choose from the Trak Racer RS6 and TR8 steel chassis or the Trak Racer TR80 and TR160 extruded aluminium racing simulator cockpits

If you’re hunting for a quality, racing simulator, Trak Racer should top your shopping list (no doubt about it).

But which Trak Racer rig should you buy? Really, it comes down to your budget and the specs you want in your rig. But we’re going to do our best to help you narrow down your selection.

First up, let’s start with the rock solid, Trak Racer iron chassis models – the RS6 and the TR8. Both the Trak Racer RS6 and TR8 are constructed from rugged, 2 inch (50mm) steel tubing for a rock-solid chassis. These rigs are built like a tank.

The RS6 and TR8 both include everything you need to start racing, right out of the box, including a premium race seat, shifter mount and fully adjustable pedal and wheel mounts.

The main difference between these two rigs is the integrated monitor stand included with the TR8 cockpit. Both rigs boast multiple add-on accessories, too like handbrake and shifter mounts, monitor stands, oversized seat mounts and more.

The popularity of aluminium profile racing cockpits has exploded over the last few years. That’s down to the modular and easy-to-upgrade features of this style of rig.

You start with the base TR80 or TR160 cockpit and then over time build out with bolt on monitor stands, larger seat mounts, button box arms, shifter & handbrake combo mounts and more.

The TR80 and TR160 are constructed from extruded profile aluminium – for a rock-solid frame. But what IS extruded aluminium and why is it so damn good? Let us answer that for you now.

Simply, extruded aluminium is a length of aluminium that has sections removed (or extrusions) along its length. This is how you get the classic ‘T’ slots in extruded aluminium that make it easy to add on additional aluminium profile or accessories like wheel and pedal mounts.

Point is, this style of rig is light (because they’re constructed from aluminium) and super rigid. That means you can load on any wheel (including direct drive) and pedal set and no matter how hard of thrashing you give them your Trak Racer TR80 or TR160 rig will take anything you throw at it.

So, what’s the difference between the Trak Racer TR80 and the TR160 models?

In one word: sturdiness. Don’t get us wrong the TR80 is a sturdy and rigid rig. But the TR160 takes this up a notch with wider 160mm aluminium chassis profile.

This makes the Trak Racer TR160 the most rock-solid (and down-right awesome looking) racing simulator rig on the Aussie market today.

So, if you want the best rig Trak Racer offers up – you’ll want to add the TR160 to your cart.

Choose your wheel mount

Trak Racer produce various TR80 and TR160 wheel mounts for specific direct drive wheel brands. For example, you can choose from wheel mounts designed for Fanatec’s DD1 and DD2 wheelbase.
