Mini racing cabinet

Here’s another small arcade cabinet. This time around it’s the racing simulator Daytona USA. [Pocket_lucho's] cabinet work has been featured before and he did some fine work with the control interface on this build. The wheel is from the controller of an RC car and the gear lever from a heavily used toy. He fashioned two pedals using gate hinges and a couple of leaf switches. The guts pack quite a punch with a mini ITX motherboard running the show. This will look great next to Ms. Pac-Man. Check out the video after the break.

    I love this guys builds. He does it so differently from the way I attack new mini arcade cabinet builds but his results are no less spectacular.

    This was called ‘OUT RUN’ in the UK and France, possibly over all europe.
    Man that brings back the memories.

    @The Don….

    Huh?

    Outrun released 1986.
    Daytona released 1994.

    Nope, outrun was a much older arcade series:

    I have many happy memories playing the sit-down 2 player linked Daytona USA in my now closed local laser tag arcade (Bedford, UK). Absolutely awesome fun!

    he plays a few games on that video, that’s where the confusion comes from. he plays daytona, the original outrun and by the looks of things, a newer outrun from the last decade, and some other stuff at the end.

    ive only now realised, watching the video with my netbook muted, how great their idea for a catchy theme tune was for their game. all you could hear in a 90s arcade above the chaos was the daytona theme song and ryu’s hadouken

    What front end is being used? It’s hard to see in the video.
