The Most Unique Sim Racing PC EVER? Simulator Giantruck “Wheel” PC

Big wheel PC

I was browsing Twitter today, when I saw something from DrivingItalia that caught my eye. Apparently, an Italian company, Simulator Giantruck, has possibly created one of the most unique Sim Racing computers ever! They have taken a gaming pc, and have inserted it into a race car tire!

Small Wheel PC

Simulator Giantruck is an Italian simulator manufacturer, that is known for making some unique motion sim setups. I had honestly never heard of them until today, but it looks like they have some really interesting things! One warning though, if you visit their website, “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC will start every time you load the page (It’s up to you on if that’s a good things or a bad thing 😉 ).

This computer is definitely one of the most unique I’ve seen, and I had to do a double take at first! The PC components are mounted in the middle of an actual race car tire! From what I could gather, the system comes in “Big Wheel” and “Small Wheel” configurations:

Big Wheel: €1,900 ($2,000 USD)

  • Z  Series 1151 Socket Motherboard
  • i7 Processor
  • 16 GB DDR4 RAM
  • 1TB Western Digital Blue Hard Drive
  • 256 GB Solid State Drive
  • Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB Graphics Card
  • Liquid Cooling System with RGB Lighting
  • LED RGB Lighting

Small Wheel: €1,700 ($1,800 USD)

  • H Series 1151 Socket Motherboard
  • i5 Processor
  • 16GB DDR4 RAM
  • 1TB Western Digital Blue Hard Drive
  • 256 GB Solid State Drive
  • Nvidia GTX 1050 4GB Graphics Card (The website says 6GB, but the 1050 does NOT come in a 6GB option)
  • Liquid Cooling System with RGB Lighting
  • LED RGB Lighting

These seem to be fairly decent computers, with the comparable components to the Big Wheel’s retailing around $1,000. Whether the “Cool Factor” of having your computer in a race car tire is worth the extra $1,000 will end up being up to the consumer. I, for one, would proudly display that for my setup.

Another question I would have is if this could be upgraded/repaired. If this is a fully enclosed system, I could see some concerns about if a component failed or became unseated.

All things considered, this is a pretty awesome computer, and I’m glad I stumbled upon this! What are your thoughts on Simulator Giantruck’s unique PC?
