    Sure that would be fine, along with your plans to move the motors and connection point as far forward as possible.

    This is how you find the COG: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/find-the-center-of-gravity-to-balance-a-motion-simulator.55/

    Move motors a bit further forward if you can to give them 5-10 angle if possible
    and out to the side a bit if you can as well

    Very neat and tidy. Have you considered having some sort of exhaust hole so there is air circulation?

    Brilliant job @jimmytm3, I really like the checker plate PSU covers :thumbs

    We will all be looking forward to a video of your rig in action when you get time to do one.

    I think this is a really good extension/adaptation of @bsft's Desk Racer layout idea for use with an existing static rig.

    Looking good @jimmytm3 :thumbs

    You may want to try tweaking heave, in the Tuning Centre you often need to manually enter a heave value of less than 1, like 0.5.
