    Hi All,

    I googled motion rigs and got here,
    It's my first try with DIY motion addition (I did tactile shaker-car amp myself) and am inspired to do more to my simrig so please, be gentle, but firm on recomendations. If my learning curve will improve I will aim to buitld sfx-100, but for now, wiper motors.


    Looked at this article and this what I managed to supply/order(30.01.20):

    It all starts with junk yard wiper motors one from bwm e36 and another one bmw e46, I hope sliding is in their blood.

    If my understanding is correct at this point I have to manage hardware stage - (mounts) and software - and no I havent done any of that before, but my luck is with you guys, right ;)
