    ok, thanks Ljanen. As it is not that expensive, I think I will buy it.

    Yesterday we could test our new approach: I removed the wooden structure and we build a compact frame out of steel (my friend helped me as he is experienced in welding). I bought a new lightweight seat (~ 7 kg) as well.
    It is much more stable and ~ 13 kg lighter as before.
    See pictures and videos here (with LFS running on a laptop). Later I want to use it with my PS4 and PC2 :)

    I have to smoothen the movement, as especially when shifting the movement is to heavy and to sharp.
    So next days I have to investigate in Tuningcenter and "Trial and Error".
    I also ordered some rubber feet for mounting below the construction for a stable position.

    So here is the result after hard work :) But it was fun !



    Some fine tuning needs to be done, but it's working good with the PS4.

    Looks very good!
    What is the dimension of the steel tubes in your frame? 30x30x2mm?

    Thanks :)
    I'm in the design phase of my frame and haven't decided yet what dimensions to use.

    New problem arose: When playing PC2 and there is heavy action, mostly one motors goes off. First I checked, if it was out of it limits and goes off by intention (SMC3 code). But that wasn`t the case. I made a few tests and find out, that the MonsterMoto gets too hot (both pgsaw motors connected to one MM) and shuts down the motor for a few seconds.
    I ordered the sabertooth 2x32 motordriver and have to adapt the setup when it arrives :)
