Upgrading Your Simons Gaming Solutions S1 Cockpit

To help you get the most out of your Simons Gaming Solutions S1 Cockpit, we’d like to share some tips on maximizing its potential and enhancing your sim racing and flight simulation experience.


Enhancing Your Setup with Dual Shifter/Handbrake Mounts

One of the most significant upgrades you can make to your S1 Cockpit is adding an extra shifter/handbrake mount. This addition allows you to use both the shifter and handbrake simultaneously, providing a more immersive and realistic racing experience. By having both mounts, you gain better control and precision, making your racing sessions more engaging and lifelike.

  • Better Control: Simultaneously using both the shifter and handbrake allows for quicker and more accurate responses.
  • Increased Immersion: A dual mount setup mimics real-world racing setups, enhancing the overall feel of your simulation.
  • Improved Precision: Having both tools readily available improves your ability to navigate complex tracks and perform advanced maneuvers.

Versatile Flight Simulation

For flight simulation enthusiasts, the dual shifter/handbrake mount provides unparalleled versatility. You can place one shifter mount on the left side and the other on the right side, effectively utilizing the rig for both racing and flight simulation. This configuration offers the best of both worlds, allowing seamless transitions between different types of simulations.

  • Left and Right Configuration: Ideal for flight simulators, where multiple controls are often needed.
  • Enhanced Versatility: Switch between racing and flight simulation without reconfiguring your setup.
  • Realistic Setup: Mimic the layout of actual cockpits, whether for racing or flying, for a more authentic experience.
