    Been able to bring the vibrations back to the profile.?
    You will be missing a lot of resolution without them. Wouldn't feel right to me but we all different.

    Yes and much better! Later I will upload a video the seat is moving like the hell. I am afraid to go to the limit of the hardware don't know what will break first - my neck or the seat or anything else.

    Cool! :cool:
    Congratulations! You've come a long way from your first steps, @Pit! Sounds like a great, successful design you've implemented here.:thumbs
    Looking forward to having a ride on your sim :)

    @value1 thank you and I hope the rig will survive until our upcoming meeting :) I have two Monster Motos in reserve so I think you do not need to hurry up ;)

    Days after intensive testing the Nordschleife (AC) the rig did not crashed or damaged. The forces are really very very heavy for now.

    Next step: I bought the simvibe software 2 months ago due to simtools does not support (yet) any bass shaker and ordered 4 bass shakers extra to the existing butt kicker:

    o 100 Watt
    o 4 Ohm
    o 28-55Hz

    Finally I bought the app dashmeter pro. New pictures or videos to be uploaded soon.

    Update: waiting for an amplifier bought at ricardo.ch (like ebay), built in two of 4 tactile transducers or bass shaker or whatever this piece of more reality is named...

    Furthermore mounted a kill switch or "mushroom emergency button" (LOL).

    Finally the original clutch by Logitech has been replaced by a bike damper. After modifying it the clutch works really impressively:

    Need that Oh S&*T switch can save your sim or even you.

    Pedal mod what a top little addition, I had been tossing up of a hydraulic mod or just changing the springs, convinced me that a better idea and I know where I can get those parts for almost nothing, mmm now where are me kids bikes , heehee.

    Cheers ,

    Hey please take a video of Value1 taking it for a run and share , Cool to see, come along way and looking smart.

    Traction loss should not need too much power, by accident I purchased by auction a wiper motor for ~1$: Denso TGL 350 from a FIAT. I will try out if this motor could resist th load, if so it would be really worth the money.

    http://auto.ricardo.ch/kaufen/fahrz...at-punto-scheiber-wischermotor/v/an728501308/

    Now I am on vacancies, I will modify the rig later or at the end of the summer (or over the vacancies if weather and/or wife will displeasing me :p )

    PS: Historiker dropped me a kindly note if I am on vacation - lol. IMO this is a Freudian slip, isn't it? :grin

    vacancies = vacation (of expression !)

    So here we are with the latest news from the headquarter of high technology simulation of Switzerland :p, where I am sitting and stunning...after one Qumi was dead already after unpacking (only red colour), I found a loose screw inside of another Qumi. Not bad that fact, all the worse the lens of this Qumi has small scratches...already reclaimed and confirmed :-/ So I am waiting and waiting for once upon a time in future, when I can - eventually - drive using my 3 screens.
