What are VR Raciing Simulators
Virtual reality simulators give you the feeling that your in the race and actually racing a race car around the track. Virtual reality is becoming more popular year by year. and we can’t wait to see what the future brings.
With the virtual reality headsets you feel more in control of the car, wherever your head is your view will follow so you can keep view of the action.
We always recommend to use the VR Headset as you will truly experience of being seated in the car as you look around the cockpit, look down and look at you been changed in a drivers race suit.
Not only do we have the VR experience, we also have full motion seats by Next Level and wind fans to make it more immersive.
If Virtual Reality isn’t your thing and you think you may get some motion sickness, we can disable the Headset so you can use our 55″ screens.
The Next Level Racing® Motion Platform V3 is designed purely for customers wanting the ultimate immersion and the most realistic simulation experience available. The future of simulation is here and the Next Level Racing® Motion platform puts you on the racetrack or flight tarmac with incredible precision, realism and immersion. Combine the Next Level Racing® platform with any VR headset on the market for an incredible experience that is simply unbeatable.
The Simucube Direct Drive system tries to achieve maxium realism for racing simulators. It gives you full realism of vibrations as you hit the kerbs of corners, and the feel of loss of traction when you hit the grass or gravel.
Direct Drive systems send the full signals direct to the wheel not like other wheels that are cog or belt driven. These other wheel systems tend to vibrate the whole unit which you don’t get to feel every movement of the vehicle or track when racing.
With the fanatec F! carbon wheel, this is a F! style which tries to keep the driver more control of the steering wheel due to not being a full 360 degree one. We have set the wheel up at 450 degree lock which lets you control the cars around corners more accurately and control the cars when drifting out of a corner.
Using Fanatec pedals gives you are a more precise feeling of the car on the track, they are a fully metal construciton unit, which gives high durability and no flex when pressing down on the pedals.
The pedals have Vibration motors on both throttle and brake pedal to simulate ABS and indicate locking tires through the braking, as well as indication of rear wheel spin and oversteer through the throttle pedal.
The VR HeadSet
The HP Reverb Headset is ultra light compare with other headsets that also gives out superb visuals and clarity close to being like a screen.
The Headset has a staggering 2160 x 2160 resolution per eye, 114° field of view, plus integrated spatial audio and dual smart assistant supported mics lets you harness the full immersive power of VR
The Wind Effect
The wind effect takes your sim racing experience to a whole new level.
The power wind fans gives you a sensation of driving a real car. You can feel how quick you are going so you can better plan your braking and turning points.
When you turn, one fan slows down whilst the other turn up, so it gives you a more enhanced feeling of the speed of corners.
