- CXC Simulations –
The CXC Simulations Motion Pro II was developed as a professional-level racing simulator capable of serving as a training tool for professional drivers. Designed by a team with a background in professional auto racing, the Motion Pro II is set apart by:
- Proprietary full-motion and car control systems
- A dedicated carbon fiber and steel chassis
- Highly realistic software systems
These systems which work together to accurately replicate the sensation of driving on the race track. The proof is in the number of Indy Car and sports car drivers who use the Motion Pro II to practice and train.
Realistic driving starts with accurate data. However, an accurate simulation is not just an assembly of data. Thanks to a high-tech physics engine and tire modeling system, this data is transformed into feeling when you’re behind the wheel. The final piece of the puzzle is VR. By adding the HTC VIVE to the Motion Pro II, it completes the immersive feeling of actually being on the track.
