The original SRB. Suits someone looking for stiffening at the lowest price and who use a typical playseat configuration – we have found that most adults move the wheel plate away from them, these Classic braces are designed for that situation – see diagram in pictures. For other configurations we recommend the Pro braces. For larger wheels (like Fanatec Podium) and further improved stiffness and usability look for the Classic Plus braces.
See “Sim Racing” category for Classic Plus & Pro listings
Our pro driver (Baggy_38) found his Playseat Challenge lacking in rigidity around the wheel mount, affecting the precise control needed for sim racing. We developed this solution to take out the major source of flexing.
We know the main reason to have the Playseat Challenge is its ability to collapse up and store neatly out the way… we don’t affect that at all.
The braces easily swing out of the way with the loosening of one Allen key bolt
The main brace strut is made of 3D printed Carbon Fibre reinforced plastic, which has an awesome grey finish, are incredibly strong and light. WIN WIN WIN…
The black clamps that fit around the Challenge’s tubes and onto the steering wheel plate, are made of 3D printed Recycled plastic. The tube clamps are designed to be quickly released to allow for the strut to be swung out of the way when you want to store your rig, pivoting from the wheel plate clamps.
Installation guide is available on our website > indigolime dot uk < if you want to take a look before you purchase… or if your dog eats yours!
Please note – if you have longer legs and arrange the seat so that your legs are close to or touching the underside of the wheel mounting plate your legs may rub against the braces. Please look carefully at the pictures of the fitted braces and compare with your setup.
