    Tell me - all TVs have such a lens sheet reflector?
    This one is sold for a penny, is there one in it?

    Hello there. Are you being able to use simhub and simtools simultaneously by now? Thumbs up for your evolving rig.

    I like the lego parts and the dumbell as the extra weight method. Couldn't think about this before. Gonna starts building mine soon or later, as your thread create some inspiration for me. Now I am still gathering parts, got 2 used wiper motors and the ibt 2, were trying to upload the smc3 files into pro micro without success, as the timers on both board are different. As for now I only have pro micro, will try on nano when it's arrived. Will start a new thread if success.

    One questions, how long does this cheap pot survived for intensive playing?
    Thank you

    thank you!
    nope, I don't play LFS anymore, and never get both of them works simultaneously. but in another game, it works well, such as AC or Dirt rally 2. a side from simtools, simhub is another software that I really need to give a lot immersion (bass shaker)

    glad it helps you.
    actually, the dumbell for extra weight is a temporary solution on my incomplete design. right now I don't use it anymore.
    right now, the weight of me and the rig it self is enough to make overall rig stay on place.

    and the cheap pot durability is so good. from the start I build this, never once I change the pot. Lets see how long it would survive. lol

    Hello everyone.
    been a while, I wanna share another DIY project that I made.
    its a DIY transducer/bass shaker for pedal, to give more immersion on your setup.
    here's the video, its in Bahasa, but you can use the automatic translation. if there's a question, you can ask me here or on my channel.
    hope it can inspire you all.
