Haven't watched the video, but is this the simulator where a driver broke his wrist when he slammed into a wall?

That is way to arcade. If an F1 car pitched and yawed that much during accelleration, cornering and braking it might as well be a trophy truck or a boat.

As far as strictly for for fun if you were palying and arcade style game then yes it would be awesome , very awesome.

To use F1's title anywhere near that thing is disrespect.

It's really hard to simulate G forces when you're sitting still. The extreme tilting and yawing probably makes it "feel" like g's and since the screen doesn't really move in relation to your body...you don't "feel" like the F1 car has body roll...


also turns out that thing is a homemade setup.

It leans to simulate the G's in acceleration/deceleration/cornering. I don't think that's supposed to replicate suspension travel.

A real F1 simulator with no G-Force effets would be pretty boring.

Imagine a Nascar simulator - thats called tryptophan

(thats the amino acid in warm milk that makes you sleepy - well it doesn't really but that was the science myth for a while)

Heres an F1 simulator that will leave you with a reminder for the next week of how real it was.

Try this for simulating the g-force feeling your neck experiences:

Former F1 driver Juan Pablo Montoya claimed to be able to perform 300 reps of 50 pounds with his neck

It's hard not to look at Nascar from a faux high horse and mock it, when in reality I would be in heaven to be back on a track in anything at all.

I started my racing desire by watching F1 for many years and then trying out some open wheel racing so I was tainted on oval drivers from the beginning but I'm coming around now.

Either way if that simulator was in my house you bet I'd be on it and our whole family would be lining up to use it.

This is why we like F1:

2006 specs:

0-60 1.7
0-124 3.8
0-186mph 8.6s

braking G 5
cornering G 6

All from a 2.4 litre.............

There's word of sub-3 second four tire changes in F1 this year with no fuel stops.

This is weaksauce, you can't possibly pull more than 1G.

Actually, it's wickedly awesome, just not as much oomph as it should have. But for that you'd need one of those g-force simulators used for aircraft pilots, but it would have to be able to stop on a dime too.

What he should do though it enclose the area between his seat and the screen so he doesn't see the room lurching around out of his peripheral.
