Quoted from phantasmo:

I've never understood why people would drive to an arcade to play a car driving game

True. Probably easier to just order a Ferrari or Lamborghini and drive them around your own race track in real life.

Quoted from Cornelius:

There is this one rather recent racer, I think it's from Konami, that's nothing but drifting. It's not Initial D, it's... man I can't think of the name for it! It's awesome though.

A company called Walhap recently distributed a game through Sega, called Storm Racer G. All blue cabinet, camera takes your pic, all drifting. I have 2 of them. Just pulled them out of NYNY for refurb.

Quoted from PiperPinball:

How do you like them?
I am looking for a pair of good racers.
What do you think of MarioKarts?

I would avoid Wahlap equipment at this time. I own at least 8 of their games, and have had a lot of problems from day 1.

I own a pair of Mario Kart 2. IMO, Mario Carts are not really "racing" games. They're more of a fun, kiddie style game. They're plenty of fun, but not in a skill based way like an Initial D or Grid.

Quoted from Cornelius:

Oh yeah! I've played it at my local Round1. However, they're curiously unlinked, and even after asking the staff there, they remain so.
Are you going to put them back in NYNY or in Fremont?

One of them has a failed main computer. We've sent it out for repair. The other one is refurbed and ready for Fremont. I may wait until they are both ready before bringing them in. Maybe a month from now depending on how long the repair takes.

They're probably not linked because they require a network hub to link even just 2 games. Mine are linked.

Quoted from TRAMD:

I have owned a few sit down drivers. Cruisin Exotica gets a lot of play by my kids and guests. I've honestly never played it (I don't play most of my vids) but it is colorful and easy. I would recommend against Initial D3. They are realistic, challenging, have fun music and good graphics and a neat card save feature. But...they are too tough and realistic and never get played. I tried it once and hated it. It was so hard it seemed impossible. Also, they are VERY heavy, like 500 lbs, and don't freaking come apart! I want to get rid of them but am not sure how to get the monstrosities out of my basement. I will give them away to anyone that can get them out of my basement. No takers yet. Heck, I'd pay somebody $500 to get them out.

I owned them a few years ago. ID3 pair will separate. You need to remove the entire center console & cashbox to do it. A ton of wiring too. It sucks.

Quoted from TRAMD:

I am talking about each individual unit/seat. Tell me how to do it if that is what you mean.

Oh, I misunderstood. No, you can't separate the seat base from the main cabinet like most other games. Daytona USA 2 uses the same steel cabinet structure.
