The Sidewinder 4-DoF is PT-Actuator's experience sim-racing motion simulator. Manufactured with 40mm x 80mm, and 40mm x 160mm extruded aluminium profile, that offers maximum stability and can withstand vibrations and high levels of longitudinal and transverse forces. This motion system is fully adjustable, with the ability to independently configure each actuator to match your desired level of dynamic response.
Using five actuators, the Sidewinder 4-DoF is capable of producing heave, roll, pitch and rear-wheel traction-loss effects (yaw). This wide range of motion creates an immersive experience, which approximates a multitude of race car movements and dynamic forces; including subtle movements, such as body roll and suspension compression, and more thrilling effects, such as rear-wheel traction loss.
Upper Motion Platform
The Sidewinder 4-DoF uses four vertically mounted Scorpion Series actuators to produce fast, accurate heave, roll, and pitch effects. The combined motion of these four actuators simulates the type of chassis movements a race car experiences during a race.
Middle and Lower Motion
The Sidewinder 4-DoF uses a rear actuator to produce the effect of rear-wheel traction loss. Capable of independent movement this, horizontally mounted actuator, can replicate the feeling of a car losing rear-traction during cornering or under heavy braking conditions.

Sidewinder 4-DoF uses industry-standard aluminium profile for maximum compatibility with cockpits on the market. As standard, Sidewinder Motion Simulators support most cockpits that use 40mm x 80mm, and 40mm x 160mm profile and accept chassis with a width of 580mm. Additionally, the Sidewinder Series can be customised to fit other chassis dimensions on request. Tested cockpits: Sim Lab P1-X.
