    @yobuddy is working toward a SimTools 2.0 release candidate, as development is at the tail end of beta testing.

    Soldered 560uf capacitors to the Monster Moto H bridges. I will be testing them before using and if they fail I will use the 100A H bridges bought recently. The Sabertooth H bridges will be last go to for motor control because of the cost. 20210330_222414[1].jpg 100A DC Motor Drive.jpg 100A DC Motor Drive.jpg

    Hi @MagicEdge good to see ya back in the game as they say , sometimes life gets in the way but sooner or later were back LOL. one word of caution , i guess many members have managed to get decent performance out of those Motomonster controllers but even though i have now switched to AC servo motors , the Sabertooths were and are great value , reliable and with decent , tech after service ..it was the a case of money well spent and i would have stayed with them had the price of AC servo gear not fallen into mid level pc pricing for 6 sets) .. but hey if these monstermotor units work and can take the abuse then money well spent , loving your workmanship and cant wait to see next stages , looking damm fine even at this erly stage .:) Great Stuff

    Thanks for the welcome back and I will do everything to get the 3 simulators working, Lots of work while helping my friend with his C3 Corvette rebuild to make 500hp. Got the 2 ply conveyer rubber today and will be cutting it tomorrow to bond to the remaining platforms and installing the motor mounts and motors.
