Over the time I’ve been looking for racing rig that have all in compatibility, accessories ,ergonomics, looks and simplicity , but never have I met a company that responded to customer’s request, produce result so promptly and elegantly, until now.
Just a number of months ago, I was watching Shaun from SRT done the review on HumanRacing GT Chassis, and there was no accessories offered at the time, after consulting with shaun re quality of built and confirming with other owner, Im really glad I made that decision, The HumanRacing accessories that they produce not only compliments the rig but also making it more elegant from what has already a very nice rig.
To see some of the early release accessories like:
1. Fanatec clubsport pedal converter plate, head to : http://wp.me/pLC9x-97
2. Then the Fanatec CSR Shifter mount head to : http://wp.me/pLC9x-8K
and in addition to the above, they have a just released a keyboard and mouse tray for the HumanRacing GT Chassis.
And since I got my hands on the accessories, I have been using it for the past 2 days, I will describe them in as details as possible for you and do a review on this.
A very simple looking elegant design.
Firstly the Keyboard and mouse tray are made from 4.5mm thick Aluminium plate that is laser cut and drilled to be mounted onto the included or additional gear mount, and they can be mounted on the left or right side of the Chassis’ seat.
The Dimensions are:
- Keyboard tray is 20cm x 15cm
- Mouse tray is 20cm x 18.5cm
The mouse tray is covered with a grippy mouse pad surface material and it is mounted with 2 x M6 Hex Screw on to the gear mount handle (included / optional)
The Gear mount is the same as one that comes with the rig, and it is an optional – so for those who does not use the gear mount do not have to purchase another gear mount and can save even more on cost.
( I received my review unit with it) so since I mount my gear on the left for australian driving, the Keyboard and mouse tray goes on the right side of the seat.
The keyboard tray is mounted on to the mouse tray’s centre edge by a small angled pole.
the Kit comes with :
Mounting and assembly is very easy, all the nuts and screws comes and fairly straight forward.
what makes this design special is that the tray can be adjusted like the shifter/gear and they make your rig very elegant.
One word that my wife said after I finished installing this was “sexy”. Not only that, it is actually very strong since they are mounted on the gear mount.
Here are my opinions after using this for couple of days
- The Mouse pad is very smooth and also provide traction for mouse movement.
- It is very sturdy, both keyboard and mouse looks and felt “balance” .
- The height of the keyboard is spot on, the angle adjustable to the most comfortable position. I typed a whole email on it without using the velcro for testing and the keyboard stays on ( not bouncing around) .
- Even though they are both on the right side, It actually feels ok to type, as if your keyboard is on the right side of the desk.
- With additional arm on both side, it did not hinder entering/exiting the rig
- It has really made this rig an even better looking and more comfortable rig.
With this Additional mouse and Keyboard stand, making changes on the fly now made even easier while driving.
I never know mow much I needed this before , and now that I have this , It is hard to Imagine driving without this.
There are many racing rig out there that have the additional functionality and accessories but not the look, or vice-versa, this rig has both and HumanRacing have done it with style.
Thanks to everyone at HumanRacing team especially (Thanavud) for producing and designing ,(Tinnakorn) for sending it in addition to the other accessorises. I look forward to their near future design and additions.
I hope you enjoy this review.
