100mm movement enough for traction loss?

    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, 3DOF, DC motor, Arduino, Motion platform

    I have a couple of worm gear motors from my old motion sim that I do not use anymore. So I decided to build a traction loss platform for my new sim.

    The motor arm is only 50mm. I'm not sure if 50mm travel to either side is sufficient for traction loss motion. That would be about 2.5 - 3 degree of angle either way for traction loss. 5 degree for yaw.

    I hope not to have to extend the arms because these motor are not that strong and can get really hot.
