    Welcome @shahm87.

    Don't worry, many members here, including myself, started with little knowledge and skills, but big ambitions to build our own motion simulator. Thankfully we a really active community here who freely give of their time and expertise.

    I found this forum while searching for information on a DIY force feedback steering wheel project. I am just getting into simulator programs with Assetto Corsa and looking forward to making it more fun and realistic. I have basic electronic skills and very good fabrication and soldering skills. Also some programming background, so messing with Arduino-based FFB wheels looks interesting.
