If you're one of those souls who prize vintage arcade cabinets, you may want to look away. A group has torn into a pair of classic Sega Rally games to create something a little more creative. Using the old steering wheel and pedal inputs, the team created a virtual racing game that controls real radio-control cars. The cool part is that the driver can choose from either an on-car camera or a top-down view as a shout out to the racing games of old.

According to our friends at Engadget, the project only ran into one real challenge, which was getting the feed to pump through the old CRT monitors in the cabinets. In the end, the guys had to scrap using the old tubes in favor of a more modern screen.

Sure, it breaks our hearts a little to see Sega Rally get cut on, but we'd be lying if we said we didn't want to spend an hour or two behind the wheel of this duo. You can check out the creation in the video below.

      Behold the future of F1. At least with this we can bring back 1100HP turbos, active-everytihng, 4-wheel steer, etc.

      You know with the right marketing, this could really take off as the future of RC racing.
