What do you do when you want to push VR racing simulation to the limit of immersion? This.

Played with just a headset and a controller, Dirt Rally in VR is a pretty awesome experience. But if you veer off of down the path of Sim Racing at the corner where it intersects with VR, you’ll end up being able to push the envelope significantly further with the help of some accessories. And while a racing wheel is a great starting point for immersion, if money is no object, there’s plenty to spend it on.

YouTube user machkun1 posted a video this week (heading this article) showing what it looks like to race Dirt Rally VR with a top notch system consisting of the following:

You can find the same user with a similar rig playing Eve: Valkyrie (2016). In this video you can hear how load the motion simulator actually is, in which case we’d definitely recommend the use of the noise-blocking Oculus Rift earphones.

    And I thought my Vive, 4k monitor and G27 was the bomb…

    The wheel and shifter/brake not moving along with the chair seems like it would be odd.

      Why? It’s perfect!

    Most of the hardware is pretty affordable if you buy less high-end stuff (wheel, pedals) but it is very unfortunate that a motion platform costs so much.

    Costs more than my car lol

  • NooYawker

    It’s pretty ridiculous car controls are this expensive. Just the steering wheels and pedals are closing in on 4 grand.

      Maybe just buy a car LOL

    I would not be jealous, my rig performs much better than this but cost me a tenth of the price.

  • I can break these cuffs

    I’m actually jealous that someone managed to rip off someone by that much while the owner still seems to have no idea.
