VRX Mach 4 Racing Simulator Seems Legit

December 3, 2007


Typically I question the merit of racing/flight simulators, but the VRX Mach 4 actually seems legitimate. Granted it probably costs more than my house, but that's beside the point. It's powered by 4 Xbox 360's -- one for each of the 3 Sharp Aquos LCDs, and one for the 7" LCD rear view mirror. It even has a "Virtual Wind System", consisting of 2 dual Honeywell fans, so you can feel the wind in your face when you're burning rubber. Yeah, it's pretty nasty. But if you've got the money to blow on this system, chances are you've got the money for a real damn sports car and the tickets associated with racing it. In which case you should stick to that -- because while driving simulators are cool, they only come with one seat. See what I'm getting at here? Sports cars get you laid, racing simulators get you bad grades in college and a string of failed relationships.

A full list of the system's features and a few more pictures after the burn-out.
