I'm amazed you were able to get hold of original numbered panels in 2020.

It’s not the best game ever but I find it very very funny . Also has some good driving skills details and playing multiplayer is the most exciting :D

Now I’ve to fix 2 crt chassis which are not in the best shape , 2 force feedbacks not working and dismantling the 8 pedals boxes for a proper clean , grease and adjusting the VR’s

VR is highly underappreciated nowadays imo.

Could that thing be Europes only 8-player up and running? Amazing.

I agree .

Young guys usually don’t pay too much attention to it :D and they run away to play F355’s and Initial D.
Basically because the graphics.
My wife calls it “the triangles game “ :(

But behind the graphics , there’s a very interesting and fun game . I’ll try to keep it to be played for the next generations :awe:

Let’s see if after the virus outbreak , we can have a big arcade Otaku meeting here in Mikado celebrating the international grand opening

Until COVID-19 is over or in better condition than now :)

But if persist , I’ll maybe have to remove all to a cheaper storage warehouse. And try again once virus stops

I can’t wait forever here losing money with rent , electricity , neighbourhood tax , water ...

If you consider setting up some sort of crowdfunding campaign I'm sure you'll get support from all over Europe and beyond. Maybe have a word with head office about offering some Mikado Europe branded merchandise as rewards or something.

It would be an absolute tragedy if COVID put a stop to the best arcade Europe has seen in decades.

A crowdfunding campaign could work. Maybe offer a future entry as rewards? I live quite far away and even before Covid, I had no idea when I would be able to visit. But I would happily contribute to a campaign knowing I would be able to come over with a ticket in hand if I find a way in the months or years to come :)

I agree. Dunno if crowdfunding would scratch the sides but that’s a beautiful selection of machines and I’d love to visit.

Great video and the 8 way VR looks particularly amazing. I love VR. Hopefully things improve and the lockdown eases again soon to allow you to reopen. It would be a terrible pity if you’re forced to put everything in to storage.
