With a never-ending goal to produce the most realistic and reliable racing/flight simulators available to general consumers, CXC Simulations has made numerous enhancements in 2014 to the company’s flagship product, the Motion Pro II.
CXC takes great care to engineer the very best professional-level platform that produces a lifelike experience within a ‘virtual’ realm. To accomplish this, CXC employs the latest technologies, systems and materials. Topping the ‘new’ list for 2014 is a completely revised pedal set supplied by Tilton Engineering. The system features a hydraulic brake pedal and progressive clutch, both of which are infinitely adjustable.
Porsche factory team driver Patrick Long was one of the first to test the new CXC system.
“The hydraulic pedals are a huge step forward in feel,” said Long, “Pedal pressure, throw length and return speeds are always in the discussions between engineers and drivers. Having a truly adjustable pedal set on the simulator lets you tune the effort level and setup to match any car. It’s wild to think how more and more, every part of a simulator your body comes into contact with is a real part number from racing – the seat, the wheel, and now pedals.”
Also new for 2014, the Motion Pro II is fitted with a modular electrical wire harness system designed by former Ferrari F1 Engineer Josh Allen. This state-of-the-art wire harness enhances reliability, allows faster assembly, and creates a modular platform that can be more easily upgraded to meet an owner’s changing needs.
Because computing technology advances at a blistering pace, it’s no surprise the 2014 Motion Pro II has some PC power upgrades. These changes keep the simulator’s visual experience vibrant while allowing for massive amounts of data to be analyzed and synthesized so natural-world physics envelop the user experience. Designed in-house by CXC, Motion Pro II computers now have a Core i7 Extreme processor, more RAM thanks to a 16GB DDR3 board, AMD R9 290X graphics cards, Intel Enterprise SSD hard drives, and proprietary internal wiring harnesses designed by CXC engineers. These new upgrades ensure that the heart of the simulator not only can run today’s simulations, but future generation software as well.
Ranging in price from $49,000 to $80,000, and built to sync with several different software providers; the Motion Pro II supplies a hi-tech motion delivery system, ultra-powerful force feed controls, and pressure-sensitive pedals that combine to deliver a realistic experience across virtual cars, planes, trucks or helicopters. The simulator comes standard with a screen system of full 1080p resolution and a 60-degree field of view, or can be upgrade to the panoramic triple-screen display that delivers 6,220,800 pixels and a 180-degree field of view.
