    Would something like this be a suitable replacement for an SCN5?

    Cost is certainly more desireable, and the specs look OK, but I am still new to this and still researching :)

    Thanks

    Someone will chime in soon, from what I know the scn5 are rated at 400mm/s and the firgelli are rated 50mm/s. I believe those with the scn5 do slow them down a bit, but I dont remember how much. Regardless I think 50mm/s is to slow for realistic movement. I remember seeing somewhere you need 100 to 150mm/ s for realistic movement.

    Yeah, we've had quite a few people ask these questions. For car sim racing you'll need fast movement. SCN5 actuators are going to be the better choice by a mile.
