CXC Simulations has delivered a prototype of the new Luxury Mobile Training Unit (LMTU), a dedicated self-contained training simulator and comfort space on wheels built around the latest CXC Motion Pro II motor racing and flight simulator.
The prototype LMTU is based on a 18×8-foot “Toy Hauler” class trailer platform with dual spare tires and front and rear stabilizers. It has been custom outfitted with a 5000W generator, air conditioning, a flat black interior, blacked-out windows and vents, black acoustical carpeting, a dry-erase board, hard mounts for the simulator and wired internet capabilities.
On top of all that, what makes for a luxury racing and flight simulator experience?
Opposite the “business end” of the LMTU CXC simulator is a comfort area including a folding bed and table, a cooking area with stove, a refrigerator, counter and sink, custom wooden cabinets and storage areas, a closet, and a bathroom and shower area. Provisions for communication, entertainment and satellite are built in.
The prototype LMTU professional simulator was special ordered by a client (who prefers to remain anonymous at this time) and will be used as a mobile personal training facility around the U.S. and abroad for the next year.
Subsequent CXC Luxury Mobile Training Units of various sizes will be custom configured to suit the user’s needs, whether as a serious driving simulator training module for racers and race teams, a mobile “man cave” entertainment center, or outfitted with multiple simulators for military programs, law enforcement agencies and vendors.
CXC Simulations is headquartered in Marina del Rey, California and was formed specifically to manufacture a professional-level racing simulator that was not only suitable for pro drivers and race teams, but practical for home use. Developed with professional drivers and engineers over a two-year period, the result was the CXC Motion Pro II Simulator, about which AutoWeek said, “might just be the best racing simulator in the world.”
Powered by a purpose-built rack-mounted simulation computer, the CXC MP II Simulator is meticulously assembled from aluminum, laser-cut steel and carbon fiber, the same materials as racecars. It is compatible with all major commercial and online software options and users may choose from a nearly inexhaustible and ever-increasing list of modern or vintage cars to drive, including F1, GT, NASCAR, sports cars, off-road, open-wheel and rally (even race boats) and tracks around the world to race on. But it is the implementation and interpretation of that auto racing software that sets the MP II apart from other simulators; the precise timing, intensity and accuracy of its proprietary full-motion system, tactile transducers and force-feedback controls, together with 5.1 surround sound and a 1080p high-definition video display. The CXC Motion Pro II – for the ultimate driving simulator experience.
