    Imagine have a apple vision instead of a screen 🤯

    • @Nutty...

      May 9, 2024 at 11:34 am

      Now this is where tech like apple vision would be useful.

    Skyrim has better graphics

  3. @Keji839

    What a terrible comparison. For $15k you could get something that rivals the drive quality by fathoms in the dynusma. And also has a motion rig

  4. @MerePasser-by-7482

    Or, we call it ‘what pewdiepie does daily.’

    The advantage of buying the 2 million dollar simulator is you’ll be able to drive your wife really quickly to the divorce lawyer.

  6. @justinwilkinson1966

    That first “simulator” is more of an art piece than a simulator. You’re paying for the aesthetic way more than the actual sim racing hardware. You can absolutely tell they conformed the steering wheel and monitor setup to the chassis design rather than the other way around. Just look at how awkward the steering wheel angle is. Thats going to wear out your wrist super quick. Its a $60,000 piece of art that happens to have sim racing equipment in it.

  7. @NootNoot.

    May 9, 2024 at 11:38 am

    Honestly, @ProjectSimRacing and @boostedmedia have sim setups that are are better than the 63k setup and are just as entertaining as the 2M one

  8. @nathangregory_

    May 9, 2024 at 12:03 pm

    It’s like a professional flight simulator where real pilots train, except for racing cars. (simulated)

  9. @blaircox1589

    You failed me YouTube algorythm – you know I can’t even afford to waste money on a VR headset.

  10. @jgyuri

    May 9, 2024 at 12:32 pm

    Did you really have to tape your car logo on the steering wheel?

  11. @ashutoshbehera4283

    May 9, 2024 at 12:39 pm

    For 2 mil i would rather buy a Ferrari instead of simulator

  12. @zZiL341yRj736

    May 9, 2024 at 1:31 pm

    For a million I better be driving around a hyper realistic looking city.

    • @_ben_sisko

      May 9, 2024 at 7:34 pm

      This set-up is built for a specific title. The title you are asking for doesn’t exist 🤦🏽‍♂️

  13. @dfgaJK

    May 9, 2024 at 1:34 pm

    60k for a static seat and a single screen, what a rip-off!

  14. @djwindkind

    May 9, 2024 at 1:36 pm

    You could replicate the dynisma experience for the price of the pro driver.

  15. @lonestranger

    May 9, 2024 at 1:37 pm

    $2M rig with a helmet cam, and it’s only recording at about 15 FPS :/

  16. @ANMOL.91

    May 9, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    Oh, I love you guys, the best market analysis! Seriously, why not mention Eledator?

  17. @RamuKumar-fr2vy

    May 9, 2024 at 2:00 pm

    Apparently the guy doesn’t know about the Eledator platform, where you can passively earn money on cryptocurrency

  18. @mr_sahil_ahirwar_

    May 9, 2024 at 2:01 pm

    Thank you for your research. I find your videos are well done. RIght now I’m keeping an eye on Eledator

  19. @2sidefighter389

    May 9, 2024 at 2:01 pm

    Wait, do you think cryptocurrency will crash? I don’t think so. I’m using Eledator, traders just do business instead of me 🙂 I don’t afraid even if crypto will crash

  20. @KristianKumpula

    May 9, 2024 at 2:43 pm

    If you can afford to blow that kind of money on a simulator, you might as buy yourself a fast bike or car and do it for real

    • @SquiggyWigginz

      May 9, 2024 at 2:56 pm

      Agreed. Bought a full motion sim and ended up getting a Lotus car myself.

  21. @KristianKumpula

    May 9, 2024 at 2:43 pm

    If you can afford to blow that kind of money on a simulator, you might as well buy yourself a fast bike or car and do it for real

  22. @sixgunfilms

    The MrBeastification of vanity!

  23. @nicholas6789

    May 9, 2024 at 4:01 pm

    Why bother taping over the logo on the steering wheel? We know you are driving a Vauxhall Insignia.

  24. @pirotehs

    May 9, 2024 at 4:21 pm

    Both rigs are for rich costumers. But I will say that 8:30 graph is total BS 🙂

  25. @klintonkacatin

    May 9, 2024 at 5:39 pm

    You can build a proper triple wide monitor setup with haptics and a fourth monitor on top of the triples for half the price of the Jag.

  26. @acommon

    May 9, 2024 at 5:47 pm

    “I’m going to get in very gingerly” * kicks monitor *

  27. @Rostol

    May 9, 2024 at 10:04 pm

    wait. let me get this straight, it costs 60.000 and does not even move ? GTFO. that’s no simulator, that’s just a gaming rig with a beech roof.

  28. @dealscale

    May 9, 2024 at 10:20 pm

    Even Max verstappen dont need a $2m rig let alone a $65k rig. He drives on a $15k rig at best.

  29. @jayrathore7500

    May 10, 2024 at 2:40 am

    what did you do with brent rose

  30. @AndySouvlakis

    May 10, 2024 at 3:16 am

    “Im Jeremy White” well, thats pretty obvious.

  31. @oldcowbb

    May 10, 2024 at 3:22 am

    just get a real race car at this point

  32. @om_is_hobby

    May 10, 2024 at 6:26 am

    what a rip off! with a 500 bucks I build my own motion simrig. Sim racing not have to loaded like a real racing though.

  33. @michaelpeachey7563

    May 10, 2024 at 11:25 am

    Yea the 63k one is nice looking but no triple screens or significant motion rig??? You can get something better for at least half that price 😂

  34. @RanmaSyaoranSaotome

    May 10, 2024 at 11:52 am

    All of these can be massively outclassed with a simple VR headset rather than a screen.

  35. @anjo2

    May 10, 2024 at 2:44 pm

    Doesn’t know how to hold the wheel on the sim also doesn’t know how to hold the wheel on the real car, win-win.
    First of all, the latency he is talking is only the motion, for example Qubic claims less than 8ms, so not sure where he got the 50/60ms, maybe for the very low cost motion?!?
    I had to search, but the Dynisma is a driving simulator, the main objective of a racing simulator is to race.

  36. @alecmillea4539

    May 10, 2024 at 3:16 pm

    The video is terrible. It starts out by saying how racing is unaffordable for most people and that the answer to that problem is racing simulators. Then goes on to show two of the most stupidly overpriced and unrepresentative racing simulators that exist.

  37. @channelvr1293

    May 10, 2024 at 4:16 pm

    I’m the happy owner of 2 race rigs. One prosimu T1000 3 DOF and a MotionXP 6DOF rig. This with the latest VR headsets and monster pc’s and their cheaper than the prodrive LOL 😆 😂 NOTHING beats a VR HMD…

  38. @invox9490

    May 11, 2024 at 5:23 am

    For that amount of money ypu could buy a sports car and rent, or even build, your own race track. 😅

  39. @qwerty2020100

    May 11, 2024 at 11:33 am

    You could very well get a used racing car for less than 60k. The host is nuts

  40. @andychicago8295

    May 12, 2024 at 9:19 am

    60K and no motion! 🤣

  41. @zbot2123

    May 14, 2024 at 2:05 am

    The 60k one was a toy… The 2M one a professional tool. There’s a cheaper version of the 60k one, approachable to all (not “luxury”, but “luxury tech” is a dumb idea) 20k will get you over 90% of the information provided by the 2M dollar rig.

    There is a lack of complete research here at the lower end

  42. @dan271291

    May 16, 2024 at 9:36 am

    Spend 2 million on a driving simulator, or less that 1/4 of the price on a literal supercar. hmm
