Speaking of racing simulations, I got to drive this bad boy at the LeMay Auto Museum in Tacoma, WA.



It had a full motion platform that replicated g-forces in all directions, including acceleration and braking. The braking effect was accomplished by using springs mounted on the harness that, when the platform leaned forward under braking, would pull the harness tight, giving the illusion that your body was pushing forward. Neat stuff.
