CXC Simulations – Formula 1 Simulator Project
One of the highly professional companies that helped pave the road to the exciting sim racing revolution of the last few years is US-based CXC Simulations. They are the developers of the popular high-end “Motion Pro II” racing simulator. Besides building pre-built turnkey motion simulators, CXC can also handle high-end custom projects.
A while ago, the CXC Simulations Special Projects Division turned a real-world Radical SR3 sportscar into a two-seater VR equipped Full-Motion simulator Chassis, featuring 2 giant Wind Simulation Fans, Seatbelt Tensioners, and a custom Touch Screen User Interface to control it all, resulting in one of the most advanced racing simulators for public use.
Now the Special Projects team at CXC unveiled their newest creation. As a custom product for a Formula 1 fan, they designed a full-motion simulator using a replica Formula 1 chassis, featuring direct-drive steering, hydraulic brakes, wrap-around screens, VR support and a multitude of software options. The F1 chassis will also become the centerpiece of the customer’s car barn, which presented the CXC engineers with a few challenges regarding the overall look of the car and the implementations of the motion hardware.
In 2007, Chris Considine founded CXC Simulations. Based in Los Angeles, California, he started building simulators for both professional drivers and motorsports enthusiasts. It did not take long before the CXC Motion Pro was born. Today the famous CXC Motion Pro Simulator is the pride of the company. The motion simulator is purpose-built for private, professional and commercial environments. Today, CXC Simulations is one of the companies out there raising the bar of modern simulation hardware and its implementation into the real world racing scene.
