Not home made. It's from Motion-Sim. $25,000. Made in the Czeck republic. There's several companies making stuff like this. Anywhere from 15-30K. If you are rich? What the hell? I have a customer that spent that much on a golf simulator. Only works with PC racing simulators though. Forza and the like don't have the right outputs.

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.

Sure it's racing, sure it takes extreme skill, sure it's entertaining but damn. If it wasn't for all the crashes no one would watch it. I say that in complete seriousness. It would be like removing checking from hockey, slam dunks from basketball and tackling from football. Without the crashes its just cars turning left.

that's what i was thinking, if he made a cover so he couldn't see the room it would make the effect more realistic.

on pit stops, i was astonished when i started watching dtm touring cars doing 3.0-3.5 sec. pit stops, fuel + 4 tires! that's amazing.

The F1 simulators the teams use do not move at all. It's actually more accurate with your brain simulating the forces, then a computer attempting to do so.

I've spent a little time on the simulators at http://www.pabst-racing.com/ . They aren't on par with say the Ferrari or Mclaren simulators, but they are set up in a make-shift car with a shifting system out of a porsche gt3 cup car and a real pedals etc.

I take back what I said about all teams, Red Bull's simulator moves, however not nearly as much as the one in this thread.

If this version was some how bigger it would be more realistic. It's got to feel like you are shaking around like a maraca in this version. Like I said, somehow you'd have to incorporate a centrifuge, that way lefts and rights would be slight banks (along with real slowing down and speeding up), slowing down and speeding up would be tilts (along with real slowing down and speeding up)

That way the Gs on your body could accurately reflect the Gs you see on your monitor (your body might pitch 20 degrees in an insanely badass braking instance along with a slowdown of the centrifuge, but the screen would only tilt a degree or two to reflect the actual moment of the car [compressing springs at a million lbs/in])

And of course it would have to be completely enclosed, with as a bonus, peripheral cams/monitors everywhere that's not car.

I'll take two to match the hadron colliders in my basement.
