Sim rigs using used kart chassis

I’ve seen a few people building sim racing rigs out of used kart chassis that they were done with.

I was wondering if anyone on the forums has seen this or built one themselves?

I thought about it but with the time I would’ve had to invest it didn’t seem worth it when you can buy a rig that puts you in roughly the same sitting position. However, the cool factor of having a kart sitting in your room is pretty good.

Would you plan to mount SIM pedals in the area of the kart pedals, or make your kart pedals send a signal to the computer? Cool idea, if you have the space :+1:.

I have been thinking about this as well. The problem is see is the foot box on a car and kart are very different. The kart steering column will be in the way of proper pedal technique. Still think about it though, might just cut up a chassis for the seat mount but at that point I might just start from scratch or buy something.

Here’s one guy’s setup:

I remember we shared an image of a kart that had been adapted to a sim rig a year ago and for some reason it went crazy.

Someone double tapped it on insta today so it popped back up

Kart sim in the UK take it to another level. Perhaps too far :joy:
