    Hi everyone.
    I’ve been sim racing for a while and during this pandemic o have my Dad a shot in my sim. A few days later he showed me this site and had got this idea that he wants to build a motion rig. He’s already way into planning and building. He’s designed a system that will run on 7 motors very similar to this. it’s a very cool idea and from what I’ve seen it all works pretty well. The problem is neither of us are very deep into coding or could write software. We are hoping to be able to use this software to make it work. Is it possible to use this with what he is building?

    I haven’t seen that one. The big question is if the software can run a rig with all 4 corners front and rear traction loss and surge.

    Thanks! I’m sure I’ll have more questions.
