few days ago me and Luca Orsetti had the possibility to try the Evotek simulator.
First of all a video with Luca driving it.
and then my impressions:
- The seat is really well done, confortable and very immersive;
It's a formula seat and you can obviously adjust the distance of the pedals.
The brake pedal is with the load cell, and it has no excursion at all; it's already still and i found it a bit strange expecially when you have to touch the brake to adjust your line.
The first feeling is that the car is quite nervous and doesn't have much grip, but when you start pushing you understand that it has a lot of grip..maybe even too much
(we saw a guy driving straight trough "prima variante", "seconda variante" and "variante ascari" (!!!!!) without losing any grip at all )
The forcefeedback was strange too, the wheel was really hard to turn, but all you could feel was some vibration and some bump; no way to feel the back of the car slipping away for example
The worse thing of all, in my personal opinion, was the movement of the sym.
I was expecting to feel some g-force, i was expecting to feel my body shattered....but i felt nothing!! just some little movement and some bumps..
We did just two sessions of 5 minutes each, but i was expecting something a bit better.
You can also see at the end of the video the car flipping!!
Anyway laptimes (i know Luca wants me to put them... )
In the end it was fun!!!
