Ford hasn’t allowed to actually drive the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor, though our main man, Wert, was driven around in the Vegas desert. That all changed this week at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. Sorta.

Okay, so we didn’t actually get to drive the real 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor, but they provided us some exclusive seat time in their 3D-axis simulator. The awesome desert racing SVT Raptor simulator was created by small family-owned, Force Dynamics out of Trumansburg, NY. David Wiernicki, the president of Force Dynamics, challenged us to a race and proceeded to rip us a new one. We managed a 68.72 time our first time out while Wiernicki ripped a 63.33, a 5-second difference that had us eating our words.

Can the simulator replicate having the rear end weighed down with 1,500 kilos? I mean, we need it to be realistic.
