    ONE FINAL UPDATE!

    Soon after I finished this I moved into a new house and my simulator was unfortunately banished to the garage. I really didn't use it much over the last two years because of other projects and lack of free time. Recently I got bit by the bug again and I want to get back into sim racing. I'm not really that happy with my current setup though and when I did use it I almost never used seat motion because it never worked as well as I hoped. After lots of debate I decided to rebuild my simulator specifically for VR with 3 dof motion (SFX-100 variant) and future traction loss. I am going to start a new thread for this updated build, but step one was disassembly of my existing simulator. It took the better part of a year to get it done and only a few hours to completely dismantle it.
