My new 'toy'

Can't be Just Another FIA 'Observer' ALL the time....

Wednesday, February 17, 2010 by Jafo | Discussion: Personal Computing

I have the computer [i7-920 12gig and XFX 1g GTX285] ....I have the racing sims [GTR, GTR2, GTL, GT Evo, NetKar, GP4, rFactor, NFSU, TestDrive Unlimited] and....I already have the wheel/pedals [G25]....

Logical progression [and an Office/Computer desk rebuild imminent] and it's only fitting I drive in 'style'...

'Should' turn up here in a day or two...[for some reason it's coming from Perth, WA]....

Paul make sure you don't have any stains on your bottom before you sit in that nice white chair.

It'll be so realistic that there might be stains when he gets OUT of the chair!!

All you need now is some high-octane petrol scented aftershave and burning rubber incense.

Looks like fun!

Don't forget the full-coverage insurance option,racing can get rough.

@ some comments. On a more serious note and out of curiosity : Where does the screen reside ?

Where does the screen reside

If it was me...52" LCD TV mounted on the wall

 

Extremly nice toy, Jafo.

Now if they could come up with something that would simulate the G-force of driving.

I don't think there's a built-in monitor. It's just a (very large) peripheral designed to be used with an existing computer system (or, I suppose, console).

 

Now if they could come up with something that would simulate the G-force of driving.

 

If you experience G-forces while driving, let me know when you're on the road, so I can stay indoors.

Damn! For € 777,00 you'd think they would at least throw in some seat belts! Oh....and don't worry about stains...just cut a hole in there and install a bucket and your good to go!

G-force is felt in almost everything you do, including driving.

Here's some examples...

2.9 G's in a sneeze
3.5 G's in a cough
4.1 G's in a slap on back
8.1 G's in a hop off step

If you experience G forces at those levels in 'normal vehicle' dynamics then apologise to the tree you just hit....

My seat will be a black one so no 'issues' with panic on Nordschleife.

Re the screen....it'll stay on the 'work' desk where it belongs...
