Hints & tips to DIY a PVC Sim driving rig, Part 1 of 5
Design is credited to Simul8r - go to Page 9 for plans: http://insidesimracing.tv/forums/topic/681-simul8r-rig-2-pvc-schedule40-mar k-ii-plans-on-pg-9/ Material is : PVC pipe Schedule 40, also known as Pressure Pipe: 60mm diameter, 3.5mm wall thickness. T-piece has 5mm wall thickness. Avoid buying weaker DWV (drainage waste vent) pipe which has a wall thickness of 1-2mm. Note if pipe is stated as 50mm or 2inch, this refers to the nominal diameter (like its minimal internal flow), not the outside. My fitting were 2inch (internal) schedule 40 pieces, but took a 60mm (outer) diameter pipe. Much cheaper online, I recommend getting the fittings (T-pieces, elbows etc) from www.pipeonline.com.au (in Australia). It was about $95 delivered from Perth to Melbourne. Buy pipe length local as this is normally cheap buy 'schedule 40' pipe and all 'schedule 40' fittings. do not buy anything DWV. i suggest buy the fittings online then take one of the fittings to the hardware store or local plumbing store and find the same pipe to fit inside here is the link to the correct elbow: http://www.pipeonline.com.au/listProduct/PRESSURE++FITTINGS++PVC/ELBOW+45 select PVC Elbow 45˚ 50 mm (2˝) $1.79 + GST http://www.pipeonline.com.au/listProduct/PRESSURE++FITTINGS++PVC/ELBOW+90 select PVC Elbow 90˚ 50mm (2˝) $1.64 + GST
