Fellow Race cube owners.

My sim is set up on a viynl tiled hard floor with rubber under parts of the base, read on...

So I’ve just finished a race, I think I might have the force turned up to much, but great fun, my setting in the tuning centre is 3, in the gaming centre or sim settings yaw, sway and pitch at 5 the rest on 20. I came 3rd which was a result, something was going right.

The scary thing though and I thought I was going mad, maybe the vr playing tricks was when I came off the sim had moved 12 inches or more, I wouldn’t mind I put some. Rubber under the base plate to stop that just in case, not actually thinking it would, their was just some little blue packing squares that I thought I would make use off, anyway lucky enough I had bought a 3 meter cable for the sim replacing the two meter one that came with it, the race was for 20 laps and I think if it had been more I might of not been so lucky, any way I’m glad I know now so I can secure the base plate. Be warned ?

Hi JMB,

I can imagine that you have had it turned up quite a lot and by that it might "crawl" a bit on the floor. It should not be a problem with the settings that we are providing by default. However, it sounds like you've had fun 🙂

As we are warning about in the SimTools manual it is not advised to turn it up too much as it can get quite violent. However it is possible to keep it in place with some sticky pads or what ever you prefer. Depending on the floor you are using we also recommend to protect the floor as there is a lot of force applied to the rotation plate. 

No matter the settings of the simulator it is always advised to keep an eye on the simulator each 15 - 30 min just to make sure it's in the correct position. I will make a more clear warning about it, just to be sure!

Haha, you turned it up quite well. I did the same a few days ago and noticed after 15 minutes that I had moved approx. 70cm. Now I have a stone floor, so no problem there. However I was almost hitting the wall, so precautions are in place to look every now and then 😉

I know they use double sided tape on the testing units as the floor is polished concrete. It helps a great deal, but you might need some protection if you have got a wooden floor.

We could turn down the force a bit, but we really don't want to limit your simulator ?

You drilled holes in your floor to fix it? Or Am I seeing that wrong? ?  ?  ?

I was going to ask the same thing. My playroom is just big enough for the Sim so I need to make 100% sure that the base plate does not move.

Are there points on the base plate that I can drill through into the floor to keep it in place? Three strategically points would it, me thinks ?

JMB's solution is definitely a very good one, but i'm not going to advice people to drill in their floor  ?
