    Hey guys

    I got a G seat. i have a bowden that pulls on a wheel with a spring as an experiment. The rod arm om the motor moves around 3-4 cm. im wondering if you guys have any experience with the gear ratios and such for a gearbox . Also the dimensions of the roller for the belt. Im thinkin 12cm. I can modify things to fit better

    It would save me a lot of time and plastic from printing if i had some pointers to go on!

    Thanks!
