    Hey Everybody!

    Just joined and getting into simracing. I am currently looking at purchasing a PT actuator setup (4 actuators, with traction loss in the future). I have been a track day driver and instructor for over 15 years but after my track car ended up being hit I decided to take the insurance money to invest in a sim rig. Hoping to learn as much as I can and hopefully help other in the future.

    Hi, I'm a race fan and I'm planning to build a simulator that would give me driving suggestions.
    I want to create a thread for my building, I already have some documents for building.
    Sorry, my english = google translator. Please be patient.
    Is there someone from Slovakia or Czechs?

    Hi all. I'm a 37 yo electronics and simracing enthusiast from the Netherlands. I like anything with buttons, blinky little lights and motors. I'm also a big computer nerd :cool:. So it was only a matter of time (and money) before i got into the simracing hobby. And now that i'm here i couldn't be happier hug:

    Hi!

    My current "simulator" is a wooden static wheel/pedal stand and a G920 I've played with long enough to know I eventually want to upgrade.

    I've been wanting to build something interesting and develop machining/welding/embedded electronics skills forever (since I skipped out on starting an engineering degree to practice medicine) and now I finally have (a bit) of time for a hobby. I'm hoping to build a static frame then add a 2DOF system to get my feet wet, then move into building some custom pedals, handbrakes etc and eventually DIY FFB controls.

    hello everyone :)
    i am actually 3 guys 60+ with very different backgrounds, but what we have in common is we have been fanatic race-gamers for 3 decades.
    favourite games today are DIRT Rallye and Project Cars, all on PS4.
    we intend to build a 2DOF or 3DOF project.
    of course we are still in the orienting phase, but it will be fun.
    so much to learn...
