The Boosted Media Sim Rig with triple 4k 65″ screen setup likely isn’t the best option for your daily sim racing needs but has worked incredibly well for creating the ultimate racing simulator experience online through our GoPro helmet cam footage.

So let’s take a look at everything that makes up this crazy sim rig!

Sim-Lab P1-X

The Sim-Lab P1-X aluminium profile cockpit has been the foundation of the Boosted Media rig since March 2019.  It has served us well as we add/remove/change our setup for various reviews.  We also know we are testing out new hardware that has been mounted without compromise.

The assembly of the P1-X was as smooth, and enjoyable with no major problems slowing us down. And having used it now for over a year on our main system we can happily say that this is a great quality product that will not let you down.

Luso Motors RCC V2 Seat

This eye catching and light weight seat has served us well for hundreds of hours now.  The light weight being an important feature to ensure you are getting as much performance from your motion systems as possible.

We would prefer to have more elbow room than you get with the high sides of this seat, which has been amended in the newer Mk3 version of the Luso Motors RCC.

SimCore UM-1 Motor Mount

Australian Manufacturer SimCore have provided what is still one of my favorite bits of sim racing gear. The SimCore UM1-ALN/ALF Motor Mount is available in a range of configurations to suit Fanatec DD1 and DD2 as well as Simucube Sport, Pro and Ultimate, MIGE, LENZE and AKM Series 5 Servo Motors.

In our experience, the UM1 has significantly impacted the overall driving experience on the Boosted Media rig.  Besides being the most solid wheel base mount we have used, the adjustability is brilliant.  With such an easy-to-use system we have found ourselves more willing to make small adjustments when switching from Formula to GT to Rally style driving.  This makes it one of the most valuable additions to the Boosted Media Sim Rig to date.

Custom monitor stands

To hold up our monster monitors, Trak Racer kindly provided us with what is essentially their 8020 Black Aluminium Floor Triple Monitor Stand with additional lengths of profile and 2 extra legs to accomodate the size and weight of our 3 x 65″ screens.

We were then able to use Crest TV wall mounts to fix our screens on to the profile.  These vesa mounts which were purchased at our local hardware store are designed for big screens up to 90″ for Home Theatre use and have worked a treat in this setup.

OMEN X Emperium 65in Big Format Gaming Display

At 65 inches huge and boasting some seriously impressive specs such as 4K at 144Hz with Nvidia GSync, the OMEN X Emperium 65in Big Format Gaming Display is theoretically every gamer’s dream.

With it’s impressively low input lag this display panel is well suited to a serious gamer in a dedicated gaming space.  However if you are willing to sacrifice a little input lag you may be able to find a better image quality on some newer displays.

Now running three of these as our main sim displays we can gladly say that they have served us very well for hundreds of hours with no reliability issues at all.

The Simucube ActivePedal is the world’s first Force Feedback Sim Racing Pedals, and not only do they provide detailed feedback such as ABS and Traction Control, but they enable you to fine-tune the exact feeling of each brake to your personal preference.  At Boosted Media, we change between cars very often, the Simucube ActivePedals allows us to quickly and dramatically change the feel of our pedals to suit the in-game car we are driving!

Simucube 2 Ultimate

While it’s hard to say this high end wheel base isn’t overkill, it is most definitely brilliant.  With 32Nm max torque it is an absolute beast that you will have no trouble getting dialled to your exact liking.

If you dream of something like this, we highly recommend the Simucube 2 Sport and Pro wheelbases which share a lot in terms of driving experience at a much more affordable price.  Make sure to check out our direct comparisons and reviews of Simucube and Fanatec Wheel Bases.

Cube Controls CSX-3

The Cube Controls CSX-3 is a very practical and ergonomic formula-style wheel.  While I don’t find myself using an on-wheel dash often, for video content in F1 cars this wheel looks definitely looks the part.  I’m a big fan of the smooth rubber grips which feel great and don’t pick up dirt and dead skin easily like more tacky grips can.

Simcore STD-24WS Wireless Button Box
MOMO Team 300 Rim

Another high quality product from Simcore with incredible attention to detail.  This highly customisable button box module is as classy as they come. Paired with the MOMO Team 300, this has become our go to round wheel worthy of a place on the Simucube 2 Ultimate.

Ascher Racing F64-USB V3

From a craftsmanship and build quality perspective, the Ascher Racing F64-USB V3 is one of our favourite wheels. The presence of two 7-way “funky switches” makes navigating menus and pit stop management easy, and the extensive range of encoders and buttons make on-the-fly adjustments a breeze.

The V3 wheel has introduced 2 thumb encoders which are perfect for parameters such as Brake Brake balance, which you don’t want to be reaching for a dial at the centre of the wheel for.

The Ascher F64 V3 also has some clever functions giving an absolutely massive amount of total inputs available on this wheel.

MOMO Ultra 350

With it’s large dish and high quality striking appearance, this wheel is awesome for rally and drift style driving where you don’t want your hands getting caught up on buttons, dials and shifters.

D-Box 4250i G3

Coming from the Next Level Racing Seat Mover and Traction Plus systems, the D-Box 4250i G3 brings another level of immersion with the obvious inclusion of heave in our arsenal of motion capabilities.

For our purposes, less is definitely more with motion, and the D-Box is throwing me around in my seat just enough to give the impression of being bumped around in my seat.  Any more than that and you will begin to see a disconnect between the wheel and the image on the screens.

An unexpected and very welcome benefit of this system is the level of detail in high-frequency vibrations.  The D-Box gives an excellent representation of road textures and engine vibrations.  This has worked so well that we no longer run any other motion or haptic feedback except the newly added Simucube ActivePedals.

Aiologs Handbrake & Shifter

The Aiologs handbrake and particularly shifter, remain one of the best value products we have seen at Boosted Media.  As far as value for money goes, these are right up there with the best.

The old school racing type design of these is one that gets us excited every time we see them, and the feel, precision and reliability has lived up to all the positive feedback these have received.

Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3

We’ve had the Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3 on our sim rig for around 2 years and it has never skipped a beat (or ripple strip).

This seat mover impressively simulates the sensations felt through the seat of a real car giving your body an array of cues to to heighten immersion and provide feedback on what is happening in your Sim.   After spending hundreds of hours sat on top of the NLR Motion Platform V3, it has proven to be reliable, easy to setup and fine tune, and lots of fun.
