Hey Guys, its has been awhile since I've posted here.
I wanted to share with you all what I just scored. A 1989 Sega Air Drive Super Monaco GP Cockpit.
I have never seen one in person in any of the arcades I've visited growing up.
Could not find any youtube vids on it. All I found were maybe 2 others if that online (in Europe) & on Flyers.

Has anyone here Physically played the cockpit version?

Today's Score:








Whats so awesome for me (As I a huge F1 Fan) The back mural has F1 Legend Aryton Senna & his famous Yellow & green helmet on the cab.

This thins weighs a Ton. Inside the front cab not only there is a 25" Monitor, But also a Truck Tire & a Air Compressor for the Air Drive system.




I seriously gotta Thank Klov members: Jared (jareedo) and Ian (ieure)
for setting this up & getting the Pics.

More pics & a vid coming soon.

Let me know if any of guys across the pond Have seen or played this in Person.

Yes,
The Air compressor gives the steering wheel & the "Seat" a force feedback.

finally found a video clip of the game here:

We had one in the operation for a couple of years.
I remember if you stepped on the brake the chair moved forward.
Very popular game and very reliable. Last location we had it operated  was in Walibi Lyon.
After that it got lost (stolen) if i remember correct.

Cool video, love the responses Smiley

Love that chair movement.

It's also handy, I'm sure you can also use the compressor to dust off cabs or spray paint them  Grin Grin

Yeps, a true a monster!
Congratulation, these beasts are the hardest ones to preserve due to their size!
I love the window on its back, for the spectators  Smiley
I would never spotted Ayrton Senna if you didn't mentioned it by the way. He is my all time favorite formula one pilot  Cool
