    Hi everyone!, I just joined after a long hiccup and I'm trying to get back to speed in the simracing world.
    I've done some software/hardware work in the past, and I'm willing to start doing it again :)

    I hope I can start sharing what is going on soon!

    Hello from Spain!

    I am new here, but also in simracing. Actually looking for the best way yo start (probably it will be a T300...), but what I really find interesting are all those DIY projects that are here... Lets learn little by little and one day I will try to do something similar!

    Welcome @Mtrex.

    You will find plenty to get you started in the FAQs, from design software, dimension of sims, to PSUs, pots, motors, control hardware options, plus heaps more: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/

    There is a glossary for all those acronyms we tend to use, which will help you decipher some descriptions: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/glossary-of-acronyms-and-names.66/

    When you are ready please start your own project thread here: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/diy-motion-simulator-projects.22/

    Feel free to ask questions on your build thread, the members here give freely of both their time and expertise.

    Good luck with your project.

    Hey guys, I'm new here, my name is Faisal and I'm from Malaysia. I'm looking into making a diy belt driven wheel and hoping to upgrade it to a direct drive in the future. I've already compiled the prices for a lot of the parts and plan to make a post asking a bunch of stuff, so stay tuned for that if you're interested to help hehe

    P. S. I noticed there's only a dedicated DD wheel forum and non for belt driven ones for us on a extremely tight budget haha, might post there, hopefully it's not against the rules

    Thank you, I've done so, but I am still quite anxious about a few things, I've already read quite A few threads about them.
