    I follow both the Hoonigan's and hoonigans bonus youtube channels and have been drooling watching the building of these and the mega PC rigs they use as the engine. I'd give some internal organs for just one of these setups :idea:

    It is awesome, I'm not so sure about the trips @ almost 90 degrees though.

    Is having wheels and brakes on the rig not detrimental to the performance though? Excess weight that will reduce response times?
    I know it looks cool, but I'd prefer funtifun over style.

    I imagine they calculated how much weight those actuators can handle. They seem very powerfull. Those apparantly are used in professional simulators of all kind. I think they could probably even handle more weight.

    Not yet. Most professional simulators used in high level racing, still use a (very large) screen.
