    Hi there.
    Mike from Canada here.
    As life has the way of getting away on us at times, it’s finally time for me to start doing some of the things I love and enjoy. I grew up with big dreams of being involved in Motorsports and fabrication side of things in the sports. Well, life happened and living in western Canada, there was so little chance to get involved in my passions. Never imagined how real simulators, and availability to us family folk, would ever become the reality of enjoying these sports via racing SIM’s. I recently just got an MSI Aegis Gaming PC and a Logitech wheel and pedal package to get started. In searching for practical racing sims here in Canada, which is difficult and unfortunately overpriced, I came across this site, it’s fantastic I hope to learn a tremendous amount and build my own motion sim in the near future. Thanks for having me in the club

    Hello group,
    I just decided that I want to build a racing sim. I think it's gonna be a 2 doa, or a 3 or heck maybe even a 4 lol. I am looking at builds, finding out the costs, and seeing what build is right for me. I want it to be universal, flight, racing and who knows what else. Thanks for all you guys post. Can't wait to start. O I am located in central California near Bakersfield, if anyone local hit me up.
