Breathtaking realism and performance, incredible immersion and precision, superb technology, engineering and manufacturing…introducing the Next Level Racing® Traction Plus Motion Platform.
The Traction Plus is truly a world class product designed to finally close that gap between the track/tarmac and simulation with a product and experience like no other motion simulator before it. The sliding concept and technology has only ever been seen before in the highest level professional race teams often with budgets in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The Traction Plus was designed and developed in collaboration with a world class motion engineering team to deliver an unrivalled motion experience. To achieve the ultimate realism and precision this has required completely unique technology and engineering with a product designed from ground up over 4 years that includes over 2000 components. The platform has been designed and developed purely for simulation rather than just using commercial actuators and adapting to simulation. The Traction Plus is incredibly more than just a rear traction loss system and designed to combine with the V3 motion platform to provide a ground breaking motion simulator experience.
PROVIDING VEHICLE FEEDBACK WITH PRECISION
The Traction Plus moves the whole cockpit and delivers both understeer and oversteer in the most realistic and precise way possible.
Based on feedback from professional drivers during product development the understeer component of a motion platform which is usually only found in 6DOF systems is absolutely critical in accurately and precisely simulating the vehicle. Feeling both understeer and oversteer the platform can be used effectively for driver/racer training particularly for cornering and rally, feeling what is happening with both rear and front of the vehicle. Even the differences between rear wheel drive, front wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles can be felt with the precise feedback delivered through the Traction Plus platform. The Motion Platform V3 and Traction Plus combine to provide accurate vehicle feedback for front wheel lock up meaning you will feel vibration as well as front of the vehicle sliding out of the corner when too much brake pressure is applied. (also applicable for rear wheel lock up depending on vehicle bias).
The Traction Plus combined with the Next Level Racing® Motion Platform V3 provides incredible levels of vehicle feedback to the driver to feel exactly what the vehicle is doing by precisely delivering sway, surge, roll, pitch, understeer and front traction loss (critical feature usually only experience in 6dof motion platforms), oversteer and rear traction loss, power slides and drifting, partial heave, vehicle and road effects such as road surface, bumps, wheel lock/spin, gear changes etc and shunting effects (to feel side impact contact from opponents/wall).
