    I'm building a 2DOF race simulator for school.
    It's a project for my final exam.

    Inspired by other race simulators that were on xsimimulator I started sketching.
    At first i wanted to use a racing chair as seat but these are expensive and carseats are heavy.
    So i maked my own chair with wood and foam.
    Here are my sketches.

    I used the last skets for my frame.
    Then it was time to start building.

    I have purchased a right-hand drive axle from a Toyota hi-ace and I got 2 Volkswagon MK2 wiper motors.
    I'm gonna use an arduino leonardo with 2 IBT-2s and 2 LED powersuplies that deliver 12V DC and 5A.
    The wiper motors are 12V and with some testing and I think they where pretty strong and fast but I didn't check the speed with load.

    My grandfader did have some metal tubes.
    I used a angle grinder to cut them in the right lengts.

    Tonight I am going to upload photos that show that it is completely finished except for the software part.
