    Thanks for sharing your rig :thumbs

    Can you please give a bit more detail, where did you source the motors and what is the control hardware/code used with them?

    Keen to hear more about the FFB shifter and handbrake.

    Do you have a link for the Aliexpress wheel and DIY shifter kit?

    (IBT_2 burning out for less than one second with this motor).

    Simtools. And a bit modificated SMC3 firmware. I used precision potentiometers with 1000 degrees work zone. So default SMC3 firmware need in correction. Also I added the potentiometer filter to SMC3 (typical averaging).

    Handbrake - nothing extraordinary. Just different vibration level depends on axis level + car motor rpms taking into account.

    Shifter - I like drive with manual shifters and hate when I can select the gear without clutch pedal. Shifter taking into account clutch status, data from sim. Vibrations (car motor rpms and wrong gears shifting) and it do not keep the stick if sim didnt confirmed successfull gear shift. Also shifter holds the stick without clutch pressing.
