Introduction to Extruded Aluminium Profile Simulators

Since 2009 Trak Racer has been pioneering the Sim Racing industry with great value and well designed products. In recent years, Extruded aluminium has come into the sim racing space for benefits such as it’s strength, expandability and minimal setup costs for the manufacturer when compared to other simulators on the market like the Trak Racer RS6 and TR8.
Disadvantages of this type of simulator is additional setup time and more industrial aesthetics.

Extruded aluminium is a fixed cross-sectional length of aluminium, which has portions “removed” along the length, known as extrusions. This allows for the connection of multiple separate lengths of extruded aluminium which can be used to build simple to very complex structures using a nut that slides into the extrusion and securing with a screw. 80/20 is a registered brand of extruded aluminium (among many others) which is often interchanged with the generic term “extruded aluminium”. Because of the versatility and expandability, extruded aluminium is often used for creating racing simulators. The most common type of extrusion used for sim rigs is “t-slot extruded aluminium”. It features a t-shaped extrusion (most commonly on all sides).
