    Those platforms are impressive,

    but my question is about complete racing simulations based on 6DOF platforms, like from Cruden.
    For example Cruden doesn't seem to offer racing sims like iracing with it. It would be great to have a 6DOF platform where you can race all or most of the most popular racing sims.

    I did some googling and I find Fasetech / Racingcube (4dof) extremely remarkable. It seems like an extremely good simulator for an incredibly low price. With the rotation it might even better simulate racing than a 6dof system

    Prosimu t1000 5dof might be as close to 6dof as you're going to come for under ten thousand.

    The rotation has to be turned way down to work with vr. I ordered mine with the triple monitor stand they sell so I can take full advantage of rotation when I need to. Should be here next week. Sim racer virgin here so this will be my first rig. Hope Im not going in over my head. lol

    Does the rotation have to be turned down due to motion/VR sickness or is there a technical limitation on the VR? Sorry - new to this!

    6DOF is readily available @ DOF Reality for £5000 or build it in bits £2500 for P3 3DOF and upgrade to P6 6DOF £2500

    I have to say neither have the movement of my DOF reality P3 or speed or size. I am very happy with this and with VR and some major rumble now :grin

    @Anthony Morris
    Neither have movment? But u have 3 dof and thats 6DOF ( – surge, sway, heave, roll, pitch, yaw) and like 3 times longer range, what r u talking about?
    I'm happy that You like your setup but, thats not even comparable...
    U can check it yourself at simracing expo at nurburgring next month.

    you misunderstand I have 24' angle off the centre for the 2 dof movement the others have a lot less I think it was 21' and 19' respective to the posts

    Anthony but yours "24' angle" thats just the pitch and roll, on 6dof u r free in any direction, believe me surge is critical for brake and acceleration to feel natural, pitch is just terrain level change. Do u now any track that goes 24' down or uphill, i think Nurburgring or even uphill at spa is not that much, (Might be wrong).
    At the end of the day, the best immersion and natural feel is not made by huge pitch, look at the video of EVO Motion, it may not look as much, but it actually feel super super real.
