    Motors come from french website https://simukit.com/. They work well, but I have no elements of comparison.

    I developed a custom launcher. Basically it starts automatically if it detects the steering wheel for example, possibly switching screen and audio device, but I did not put keyboard shortcuts or shortcuts by a device key. If I have several requests, I will upload and add options. Launcher.png

    New tachometer. IMG_20190813_204145.jpg

    I warn you, cheap tachymeters like that are not accurate at all.
