    Hey Guys,
    My name is Greg and I am a member of the USA Skeleton (headfirst solo bobsled) Team. I have been using VR Racing as a training tool for almost a year now and have found that it is incredibly helpful. It started with a crappy computer and an old Xbox 360 wheel from Microsoft. It has turned into my first ever PC build (Amd FX series CPU and RX480 8gb GPU) rig running 4 screens. Then came the custom battle station chair. This led to the Thrustmaster T300 (although the Fanatec looks pretty impressive as well) Then came Oculus DK2 quickly followed by CV1. I am a lucky man and with my gf getting into the racing as well for training purposes, we just purchased a Prosimu T1000 3dof rig. (Merry Christmas to us). I've been trolling along here for a while and there seems to be an overwhelming amount of information kind of all over the place. I don't have any experience with SimTools so obviously I need to get up to speed on that. I was curious if anyone had any tips, tricks, advice, or any other pointers or thoughts of note that could provide helpful as my rig undergoes this upgrade and overhaul.

    Thanks

    Greg

    Hi XSim community!

    I'm Darryl from Whitby, New Zealand. I'm a Euro Truck 2 Sim, American Truck Sim and Dirt Rally junkie.
    I have no experience in electronics other than very basic stuff from College - 16 years ago :confused:

    Found this amazing place after searching for DIY wheels. Using my DS4 for tilt controls and a keyboard for everything else just isn't cutting it anymore.

    After cruising the forums i've decided i'll give a button board a go first to make life a bucket load easier. If that works out, well... There'll be no stopping me from trying out a FFB wheel and motion sim.

    Thank you to all the contributors here. Your work is truly astounding and inspiring.

    Hey just checking out this forum and oping to get some insight on getting some bass shakers setup in Project Cars 2. Currently I have been playing around with Simvibe to no avail. Hopefully Simtools will be a worthwhile endeavor. Thanks for all the hard work!

    Hello! I'm profetadelmus from Spain. I'm comming from xsim (seems a bit dead) and i hope that i can improve my sim here.

    I have a question. So, i already have a DIY 2DOF xsim based, i'm eligible for a DIY license if i publish my construction thread and 30 days community activity?

    Thanks!

    Hello all, my name is Moe and I live in NJ/USA. I currently have a 3 dof ProSimu rig on order, but came over here to do some research on building a 6 dof in the next year or so. I race cars in real life as a hobby ( ASA Stock Car in the V8 Road Racing Series ) and I also own a High Performance Driving School. I used to be a flight sim junky back in the 90's when Warbirds was the sim of choice. I hope to put together a rig for racing and flight sims.

    I'm a very experienced fabricator and have pretty much everything at my disposal to weld/mill/etc but I'm completely clueless as to the electrical and software interface. I'd appreciate any info or links for choosing motors, controllers, boards, etc. I'm hoping to learn here!

    Hi Thomas here you go: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/diy-motion-simulator-projects.22/
    It is your first project? If so, a 6DOF is very demanding, ntl I wish you success with your ambitious scheme.
