    Anyone can provide me a car chair reference(or ebay link)? I like the car chair used in this 6dof with a weightless 9 KG. I'm using a real car chair but the weigh is over 40 KG.

    hey @SilentChill sorry if i make u repeat.. i like to ask what is the black poly material you use, it looks like ABS slabs that you put at the top of your actuator and bases, and connected your bearings as guides...

    Hello, I have a question about the wiring.
    You are definitely using a shielded cable for motors and pots. Did you earth the shield or treat it differently? I'm having trouble with engines, so soon as I put my ring on load so the engines start to turn back and forth easily. So everything vibrates.

    Nice work SilentChill! I saw a video on youtube were you drove Dirt Rally using OpenVr. How did you get the game running so it`s possible to open OpenVr inside the game? Im trying to get vr compensation working. it works vell on LFS but when trying to run Dirt Rally it allways start
    through oculus app and I can`t open OpenVR? Steam say it`s not a VR game?
