I’ve played plenty of racing games at home, complete with a nice steering wheel and pedals. However, it never quite compares to playing in an arcade, where they have the realistic seat, and the wheel and pedals are positioned exactly where they should be. Wouldn’t it be great to have something like that in your house? I’ll do you one better. You can get this Stock Car Racing Simulator.
This specially-designed setup makes the games at your local arcade look stale and boring. The steering wheel uses fluid-dampening to create the most authentic feel of any other out there. You’ll also find the exact same paddle shifters and pedals used in real race cars, and can be completely adjusted (just like the real thing). But not even the 5.1 surround sound system or 23-inch screen truly sets this apart from other racing simulators. The entire cockpit sits on a set of electric actuators which will move in tangent with what you’re seeing on the screen. Entering a turn at 100mph? You’ll actually be tilted at the same angle that your “car” is on screen. Going in for a tire change? You’re going to feel one side get jacked up while they make the change. Of course, when I look at the $60,000 price tag, it makes me wonder how much time I could rent with a real car on a race track.
