The designers at Elite Sim Design have just what you are looking for. The problem with traditional simulators is the high cost of ownership. The Elite Racer Pro, is a fully functional racing simulator at a fraction of the price.

The ERP features the most widely regarded wheel and pedal simulator set in the world. Provided by US company, ECCI, the Trackstar 6000 wheel delivers the most true to life performance available, all backed up by their patented dampening technology. It has to be tried to be believed!

The pedal set is equally as magnificent and allows for a full range of different techniques. Each and every element can be augmented to suit individual driving style. The fully adjustable chassis geometry allows for changes in pedal tension along with a widely adjustable range for maximum breaking force and initial preload.

As with all top sports cars, a state of the art paddle set has been fitted to the steering wheel. With unmatched durability and the unprecedented precision of zero mechanical slop, these paddles are so advanced that many sets have actually been sold to "real world" racers looking to adopt a semi-automatic gear shift system.

Audio Equipment and Vibration Effects

The ERP is kitted out with the latest in surround sound technology. A full SONY™ Bravia 5.1 surround sound set-up has been preinstalled to provide cutting edge realism, the closest to actual racing available.

With our incredible top-of-the-range Crowson™ vibration setup you can really feel every groove and rut on the track. These "vibration pads" installed under the seat are perfect for the recreation of low end audio helping to create an unbeatable in-game rush.
PC Hardware

At the heart of the simulator lies a powerful engine – an amazing Quad-Core PC with 4 GB of memory and a 500 GB hard drive with a high spec Nvidia SLI graphics card to enable all current PC based race simulation titles.

Race Seating

Viewing Options

The ERP comes fully equipped with a full high definition 1080p LCD screen that really helps to make any game spring to life. The screen can be optional and there are a number of other viewing options including triple screen set-ups, Vuzix™ I-Wear virtual reality glasses or even a full projector/home cinema set-up.
Games

One of the best things about the ERP is that it can play almost every available PC-based racing game that you would ever wish to play. With an unprecedented range of race simulation titles including the new GTR Evolution, the R-factor series and many others, you will never run out of new experiences to test out on this unrivaled race simulator.

This is cool, but for some gamers that have less money, they can’t afford this one.

Fascinating. One of the things that I look for and actually spend money on are controls for my gaming consoles. I haven’t actually completed a driving set just yet as it is expensive here in my country and they are sold by parts. Wheels, pedals, and a lot of yoga to be able to earn money for them. lol
