FREX SimSYNCHRO – First Photos

Japanese sim hardware experts FREX are working on a new product in their line of professional sim racing equipment, answering a popular customer request. The SimSYNCHRO unit will add another touch of realism as it prevents the FREX Hshifter mechanically from shifting unless the clutch pedal is pressed.

Below are two photos of the prototype unit, the FREX product portfolio includes pedals, shifters and their flagship product, the SimWHEEL steering wheel that sells for $2000+. More info on all their products can be found on the FREX website.

    that cost is just stupid.
    i have a 1000cc racing mini and that cost me $1,9010 with spare parts. i know this makes it more realistic but for that price what would any of you choose. a peice of computer harwere for racing sims or a real race car

    That’s TWICE what some of the best sim racing cockpits cost! Madness!

    I think I am in the wrong biz. Hahaha. I built my cockpit for about $70. If I built a second one I think I could get it down to $50. This doesn’t include the cost of the seat which came out of my race car but you could probably pick up a seat at a junk yard real cheap. I have considered making a second cockpit and then bring it with me to the 12 hours of Sebring and the Petite Le Mans along with my wheel, computer and generator and just have it around for fun but have a price tag of $300 on it. If someone buys it they buy it. If they don’t then I will give it away to a friend. :)

    This is madness. For that kind of money I can run a year of amateur rallies (maybe more, never actually counted it… one rule of motorsport is ‘never count how much you spent! else you might hang yourself’ ;) ). So OK, maybe I run a 300$ junker, but it does have a racing seat and Sabelt 4-point camlock harness and it’s 1000% more fun than any sim in the world.

    For that price you could probably get a REAL Mini gearbox and mod it to use it in racesims:)

    You could probably get a WHOLE Mini and use it as a sim rig.

    Unfortunately, too many cars that we currently drive in mods and full sims do not require clutch use. This is great for GPL/GTL and the Power and the glory – and for say the Solstice in iRacing, but for most cars in other mods/sims it’s really not necessary.

    I find it interesting however…will be looking at it (though it appears pretty costly).
