The VirtualGT Cockpit

 

VirtualGT’s unique cockpit is constructed from (94) CNC-routed 12mm and 18mm Baltic birch plywood panels, each hand sanded, primed and finished with a catalyzed Urethane coating.

Baltic birch just about the strongest and lightest furniture-grade wood available. See why here.

These panels are fastened together with alloy steel hardware to form a lightweight, strong exoskeleton structure that serves as an enclosed cockpit, has the appearance of a race car, and provides a stable platform for all the controls, seat, display and electronics.

VGT’s audio and vibration systems are fully integrated into this structure to provide you (the driver) with total immersion into the driving experience. You hear all the sounds and feel the expected engine, drive-train and road vibrations of an actual race car on your feet, hands and torso.

Coupled with our Advanced Motion system below, VGT delivers the most believable illusion of driving a race car at speed, available today.

 

Advanced 9-channel Motion

VGT 9 Channel Motion

VirtualGT is known for it’s subtle, precise 9-channel movement that blends seamlessly with pure audio, visceral vibration, and immersive HD video. Unlike simulators that only move the seat, everything that moves in a real race car moves in a VirtualGT and it’s low roll-center geometry duplicates a real race car feel.

Structural Integrity. While others simply bolt D-BOX actuators onto their cockpit, VGT designed a 1″ tubular steel framework to integrate the actuators and their controllers into a rigid, self-contained structure that any VGT ever made drops onto and secures with just (4) bolts.

Controls


Pro Pedals

The Pro Pedal Set was specially engineered to satisfy serious drivers that understand how critical braking feel is to their results. All components in the Pro Pedal set are made from high quality steel or aluminum, and pedal placement is adjustable in terms of distance, travel and resistance.

The brake pedal is specially fitted with a pressure sensitive load cell which replicates the feeling of squeezing the brakes and is sensitive to the amount of pressure being applied, not just how far you’re pushing the pedal. With realistic sensitivity and pressure, a driver is able to experience the shudder of ABS being activated and also the control required for threshold braking.

One of the more important skills that separates drivers from the front and back of the grid is their ability to consistently apply the perfect amount of pressure at the beginning of the braking zone. Another is their precision when trail braking to balance the vehicle platform. All Pro Pedals include calibration software to get the feeling just right and improve consistency.


Sequential Shifter

The perfect way to replicate shifting a sequential or dog-box transmission in a purpose-built race car. Heavy duty machined aluminum construction. Dual aircraft-grade ball bearings and cushioned with rubber dampers to create a firm and precise shift that feels like the real thing. Black anodized finish for ultimate longevity. Great for the occasional driver unfamiliar with manual transmissions or professional racing simulation.


6-Speed Shifter

This shifter has a solid mechanical feel and includes 6 forward gears and reverse. Precise gates and a firm center spring make finding neutral and each gear just like a manual transmission. Replicate authentic vintage racing and production cars by pairing this shifter with Pro Pedals. Great for learning manual transmission and heal-toe downshifting.

Both shifting options available on all VGT simulators from the factory or as an upgrade for existing units. Both shifters can be mounted together and used interchangeably.


Pro Cockpit Option

This major upgrade is for professional or aspiring professional drivers who want the maximum amount of realism and feedback available in their simulator.
