The ButtKicker Simulation Kit is a great accessory for sim racers, adding a completely new level of immersion and really making you feel connected to the track. The ButtKicker Sim Kit is a powerful device which attaches to your sim racing rig, and emits powerful pulses/vibrations, simulating the connection between the car and the track through providing shaking the cockpit (i.e. haptic feedback). It is compatible with PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, Wii & MAC, but for Xbox and Playstation consoles you will need an additional mixing device that transforms the stereo audio output signal into mono for the Sim Kit device (costs £10-£20). When you are driving on track, the Sim Kit simulates the feeling of being on a physical track, that is, a track with bumps and undulations all over, and elevated kerbs and rumble strips - it transforms the track from a dull, unresponsive surface into a completely communicative, dynamic track surface, giving you lots of information that you previously missed out on. Especially in the context of sim racing, it means now you feel every time you clip a kerb, run off onto rumble strip or drive over a bump in the track. It adds a totally new layer of immersion to your sim racing experience, giving you valuable information that will be sure to help you - after all, the more information & feedback you are able to get about the behaviour of your car, the faster you can drive - it's that simple.
Compared to the ButtKicker Gamer2, the Sim Kit is very similiar, having the same BKA-130-Ci 240V amplifier, but the Sim Kit differs as it is mounted differently. The Gamer2 easily clamps on to office chairs and similar objects, whereas the Sim Kit is designed for sim racing cockpits. For maximum effect, customer frequently choose to buy multiple devices and attach them at different points on their rig - bulk discounts available. For Sim Racing, the standard software included with the ButtKicker isn't very good. Lots of sim racers will choose to buy third party software, such as SimVibe by simxperience, which allow you to tailor the Gamer2 with much more precision, and it really improves the experience you'll have when sim racing. But SimVibe does cost nearly 89$, which is quite a big extra cost, but it does really allow you to get the most out of your ButtKicker device(s), so most people do buy it, as the factory software included is not totally suitable for sim racing.
Once you've used a ButtKicker, you'll never want to play a game again without one! It is a lot cheaper than buying a motion platform, and adds a complete new level of immersion to your sim racing experience, letting you feel the track like never before!
The ButtKicker Simulation Kit delivers stunning realism, immersion and impact to your simulator installation.
Perfect for smaller, single seat applications, the simulation kit allows you to feel engine revs, braking, gear shifts, kerb hits and much, much more - it's like being in the car.
The ButtKicker Simulation Kit uses the existing audio signal to create the dynamic and musically accurate tactile feedback that brings simulations to life.
Similar in function to the Gamer2, the Mini-CT transducer included in the kit enables the unit to be mounted directly to a flat surface rather than an upright post. The latest version of the Mini-CT has received a major internal upgrade for improved performance.
The 2017 BKA-130-Ci 240V amplifier has also benefited from an internal upgrade and the kit comes complete with all the necessary *cables and a set of six RI-4 isolators are also included to maximise the tactile effect. *Optional quick-release XLR connector upgrade available at extra cost.
For sim racers, the Sim Kit adds the missing driver to car connection, bringing more realism and immersion to your sessions - haptic (felt) feedback is a must have for sim racing. It is also a must have for shooters, allowing you feel incoming fire, pinpoint other players even while your squadmates are talking giving you a game changing tactical advantage - so it is a versatile product that you can use with many different games!
