Racing Rig Project

By Kevin Sinohui
Senior Technician & Partner

Gaming has evolved to a degree that, with the right software and hardware, you can find yourself immersed in an entirely new world. Ultra-realism is just a matter of having the right processing, simulation and setup in place. Fast Rhino recently worked with one of our clients in Dove Mountain, AZ to help achieve a quite remarkable racing rig.

This project so far has consisted of four steps, and we see more coming in the future.

Build the machine to run it.
Seeing the results, it shouldn't surprise anyone that our client equipped the system with an Intel® Core™ i9 12-core processor, 32GB of RAM, an RTX 3090 Founders edition video card, a ThermalTake liquid cooler, and 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD. The lighting package certainly felt at home. 

Connect all the hardware to the PC and configure the software to run an automotive simulation rig.
A well researched process of matching the right simulation hardware and configuring the software properly really can make a huge difference in the end result.

Customize the racing rig with additional hardware to client requested specifications.
Layers of audio, video and motion technology come together and make the entire experience incredibly lifelike.
