In this thrilling video from Larry Chen, we witness the adrenaline-pumping experience of driving a full motion rig from Sigma Integral. The mastermind behind this engineering marvel, Peter, guides Larry through the intricate details of this cutting-edge simulator. With a price tag of $150,000 excluding the car, this rig is not your average gaming setup. It's a high-tech beast designed for various purposes, from amusement parks to private owners and even car museums.

Sigma Integral's expertise in motion simulators shines through as they walk Larry through the process of building this mind-blowing rig. From actuators to steering systems, every component is meticulously crafted to provide an immersive driving experience. The rig's ability to simulate forces like hitting curbs adds a whole new dimension to virtual racing. And the attention to detail is impeccable, with functional parts of the 280Z retained to maintain authenticity.

One of the most fascinating aspects is the rig's safety features, ensuring that even with its immense power, no one gets hurt during the simulation. The custom subframe and actuators, capable of exerting over 5,000 lb of force, are used at just 33% capacity, highlighting the rig's sheer strength. Moreover, Sigma Integral's commitment to quality is evident in their use of American parts and rigorous testing procedures involving cookies and bananas to ensure safety.

As Larry delves deeper into the rig's inner workings, from the powerful motor to the intricate steering system, he uncovers the meticulous engineering behind this technological marvel. The video showcases not just a simulator but a testament to human ingenuity and passion for automotive excellence. Sigma Integral's creation is more than a gaming rig; it's a gateway to a world where virtual reality meets the thrill of real-world racing, offering enthusiasts an unparalleled driving experience unlike any other.
