After years in the making, fine tuning and tweaking. The time has come to release our Bespoke Arcades Racer (Cue fanfare, fireworks and a Ferrari Testarossa)...

The Apex racer is designed to meet the needs of today's urban retro driver. You can either pick up people with aplomb in Crazy Taxi. Maybe you want to watch some Miami Vice, get into some flannel shoes, Porsche 928 Turbo and shunt the bad guys into the wall in Chase H.Q.- well now you can "Go Mr Driver" with the newest addition to our arcade repertoire.

    Using genuine Happ Suzo arcade pedals, wheels and shifters the arcade games feel exactly like they're meant to. You have the same weighty, sturdy steering wheel with solid, thick aluminium pedals which are designed to take a firm stamping. Every single shifter we offer were used in the most famous driving games of all time and are still used in today's current arcade games. And no matter which one you go for you have that same tactile feeling which takes you back to when flying down the sun drenched highways of Out Run was a genuine thrill. It still is- the music is just as iconic and you'll be whistling the tunes whilst driving to work the next day.

    Or if you want to opt for a more modern setup- you can choose the Logitech G29 which is great for the newer games as well as classics and comes with force feedback so you can feel every rut in the road and let the steering wheel fight you on every turn! Truth be told- here at Bespoke Arcades we love the traditional feel of the Happ setup every time.

    Just like all of our arcades, we offer full remote support if controls in a particular title needs some tweaking.

    You might want to have a particular setup. The main stumbling block is which shifter? Just give us a bell and we'll set up a configuration that's right for you.

    Some games like F-Zero you might just want to plug a joypad in (which you can choose from the upgrades above) or you just might also want someone to ride shotgun. Quite literally if you play Lucky and Wild and one person is driving while the other is shooting via the optional lightgun. You can also massively expand the number of games if you choose the lightgun upgrade, you'll then have access to over 100 lightgun games to play.

    Well the convenient usb ports are there for the above use and a whole lot more. Retro Cloud will be on hand to provide you with any game which takes your fancy and you're free to add whatever you want thanks to the hot swappable hard drive feature.

    But let's be clear on what you're getting. The traditional arcade games came in 2 flavours- one was a traditional steering wheel with 270 degrees of turn and springs back to the center. The other was a steering wheel attached to a spinner (like Arkanoid)- these wheels just spun and spun infinitely. If you remember Pole Position or Super Sprint- these arcades ran on those setups. We've painstakingly gone through each game so the titles run as great as can be on a 270 degree steering wheel.

    If you want the best of both worlds- we can install a spinner so you can play both types of game perfectly- as they should be and one can unscrew the spinner wheel so you can have one central wheel. Whatever you need- we can customise the machine so it's perfect for you. Everyone is different :)

    So which PC would suit your needs? The standard PC supplied with the racer is perfect for your traditional retro arcade racers like Super Monaco GP or Power Drift for example. Enough processing power is available to play the Golden age of arcade gaming perfectly.

    If you need a little more oomph to play the later 3D titles like Daytona, Crazy Taxi or Sega Rally then a Pro Spec PC will fit the bill. This PC will also open the floodgates to allow more console based games to be played (although you might need to use a joypad due to the unique controls).

    For example Out Run's shifter is all driven via one microswitch so its ether on (for hi gear) or off (for low) when its disengaged- great for Out Run, Chase HQ but not so cool for the rest.

    But you might want to go up and down a range of gears- like in Super Monaco GP etc (better as you can sequentially go up and down the gears) then our standard hi/low shifter will be best.

    Along with that- what about a turbo boost button on the sequentially geared shifter? No worries- we've got your six. During the ordering process we can advise you on the best setup and you can be clear on what you're wanting. I would opt for this as it covers all the bases and still harks back to the best days of arcade racing.

    So many great games to play, exactly as you remember but brand spanking new (cigarette burns and cat pee odour an optional extra).
