    Here is the interface preset file I use for my 2 DOF playseat:
    - 2 DOF
    - roll and pitch DOFs
    - wiper motors are at rear
    - arduino code in the DIY tutorial http://www.xsimulator.net/2dof-wiper-motor-playseat/

    No need to fiddle with your local directory! Simply drop your preset here to install them:

    @Daguru , also if you are fitting the motors towards the front, you will best modify the design so they are working to overcome centre of gravity.
    So make some extra motor mounts like I have drawn up

    Thank you @bsft I was going to do that as I seen you advise someone else the same thing. ;)

    Would it work ok if i moved those mounts even closer to the front ? so it wouldn't get in the way of getting in and out of the rig
    Regards

    If you mean like a foot motor mount
    2DOF racingmat playseat rear wiper motors foot.jpg
    Or this
    165612890_frontmotor1_122_37lo.jpg
    Then yes, thats fine, the overall travel of angle may be a little shorter, but a good profile with help sort the immersion feeling out.

    Thanks again @bsft, yes the Foot motor mount (first pic) was what i had floating around my mind (still not done any drawings yet but got the Ideas ready)

    I must say I am a member of some helpful forums on the net but this one is by far the best ive seen for the sheer level of help and passion thank you all ;)

    No worries man, Ive been through HEAPS of design builds so I can confidently say what needs to be done.
    Just curious , what other forums are you part of, sim or car related?
