Direct drive wheels are as popular as never before in the sim racing community. Many different wheel bases from many different manufacturers are available, SimXperience is one of them. The SimXperience Accuforce Pro was very popular due to, of course, its performance and the fact that it offered a very complete and stress-free package. Now, SimXperience has announced version 2 of the AccuForce Pro and you even have the chance to become a pre-release tester.
SimXperience AccuForce Pro V2?
Compared to the original AccuForce Pro, version 2 does not really differ too much from its predecessor. There are some differences though: The slip ring / USB hub, the motor enclosure has been redesigned and most importantly the price has been dropped.
Three different packages of the SimXperience AccuForce Pro V2 will be available:
- AccuForce Pro V2 “Complete” ($1299)
- AccuForce Pro V2 “Your Way” ($899+)
- AccuForce V2 DIY ($704)
Many of you will be happy to see that prices have dropped by $450 – $700 and whilst saving money none of the wheels performance has to be sacrificed.
Here is what SimXperience had to say regarding the price:
By optimizing our supply chain, increasing our purchase volumes, removing the slip ring / USB hub and giving the motor enclosure a fresh new look, we’re able to offer the V2 at $450-$700 less than the V1 ($1749) without compromising performance.
Want to try it out?
Then you are in luck. SimXperience will choose five sim racers who will receive SimXperience AccuForce Pro V2 for testing.
