    Dissapointment!!!
    After i have been to the workshop we have concluded that the 3 platforms that i was thinkig of will be to heavy for the motors, wich sadens me. Will be close to 145kgs without me wich aint moovable :)
    So it will probably be made as Pit have done it as i really like that setup. My friend said it would be easier if we just did the seat mooving on the tube chassie and the traction on a base. We found out it would have been to clumsy and accurire more space than im willing to sacrifice....read my wife :)
    I can with this setup fasten the screens wich i intended from start aswell so there is something good with it.
    Just waiting on my wheel and seat so we can get bashing.
    Recived my MM, pots, breadboards etc today so just the chipset coolers and the motors left on the electrics.

    Take your time, with soldering it pays off in the long run.

    Yeah thnx i know ive done quite a lot of soldering in my youth heheh. So ive goten all the moto monsters done.......i didnt get the solder wire fasterners for the
    Plus and ground in and out wich irritates me otherwise i could have hooked it up :).....
    Well its a day tomorrow aswell. The suzuki vitara unijoint is ordered.
    Motors are ordered and payed, they have the delrin gears!!!! just be warned, so i ordered the brass gears separately so they ended up at 75£ plus vat and freight wich was a lill more than i expected. They only have left and right ones for thoose interested.
    Sparco Evo 2 seat (used and red) is beeing picked up on firday and hopefully the thrustmaster wheel gets delivered this week.....YUMMY.
    Jens my workshop friend thought i should make a wooden constuction first :( its a lill cheaper but we get measures right according to him and hes probably righ as its easier to do adjustments in wood :)

    Cheers fellas

    @Fredrik J glad to hear that you have success. Obviously you got some working MMs so please would you share the source where you bought them?

    I got the hp dps750rb to work weeeeha!
    A little 1000ohm resistor fixed it so i tricked it to start
    But i need to moove the connections for the outpot on the MotoMonsters to the underside as the fan will interfer with the coolers even if i cut it like pit. I think i have different connectors as they might be a little bigger.
    Keep ya posted
    cheers

    Pit i bought them form your source (Moto Monsters), and the PSU´s was for free from a friend who works as a server admin the ards was from a Aliexpress i deleted the adress though as i thought i didnt had to use it no more but i can dig it up in my basket i guess.
