Gaelco's ATV Tracks
« on: May 10, 2018, 02:41:24 pm »
I never heard of this game before, but saw it in Demul.  Holy crap is it fun. I was playing on an X360 controller but it's bound to be even better with a wheel (even though I'm sure the arcade cab uses handle bars).

A really fun hidden gem of a game.

It's gaelco. It's a Spanish company producing arcade machines.

The Real arcade machines look pretty much like a quad and use a wide steering bar. It has it's gaz on the right and 2 brake levers. (Left and Right).

The steering bar has feedback control using a Happ Motor and a Gaelco made control circuit. The base itself can be pushed upwards left and right using 2 3-phaze motors and industrial speed controllers. They often had mechanical failures, so I doubt there are still many in exploitation.

I know the company I think my brain just combined them and Jaleco :)


Thanks for the write up on the cab, I assumed you given the game a go? I'm surprised at just how fun it is.

I had a pair of these for about 3 hours. One was operational and the other had a dead MPU or power supply. I got them from a guy who was dumping them. The guy who bought them had them for about a year and then called and asked if I wanted them back for free. I said no and they ended up in the dump. It's a sad situation, but I had no place to store those monsters. These units had full motion and everything. It was quite a shame, but truly unavoidable as no one would take them for free.


..but that story is nothing compared to the 5 late 80s and early 90s pinball machines that went straight to the dump.
