PC Modders is helping some of their friends work on a real-life racing simulator cockpit for the V8 Super Car series, which is run out of Australia - showcasing V8 muscle racing around iconic local Aussie tracks. Set to model that of Garth Tander's Holden racing vehicle, this project is utilizing a real car shell as the exterior to help you get the full feel.

Featuring what looks like the complete write-off wreck of a VZ series Holden Commodore sedan, this project will involve all the bells and whistles including a ButtKicker for realism, a full set of racing-grade pedals and head-tracking technology.

 

With building only being newly underway, there isn't too much to look at just yet - we will cover it more as the build develops. As according to PC Modders, it should see completion within three weeks.
