Insane/Hero Japanese Arcade Turned A Real RX-7, AE86, And 22B Into An Incredible Drifting Game

How sick is this?!

An arcade company has bolted on a Mazda RX-7 FD, an AE86 Trueno, and a Subaru Impreza 22B STI onto a moving platform and attached a gigantic screen in front of it. The arcade/driving simulator is an Initial D 4th Stage game located in an arcade in Odaiba, Japan. We’ve seen racing “simulators” like this in the auto shows with a Dodge Viper, but it doesn’t quite have the level of articulation such as the one seen in this video. The cars’ details look spot on from what we’ve seen from the manga and anime. The Hachi-Roku looks as if there would be a crate of tofu in the hatch, while the RX-7 wide body makes it look like you can actually get drifting sensations out of this simulator.

We want to book a ticket to Japan now so we can try this out, IMMEDIATELY!
