    I discovered Sim Racing few months ago and fallen in love with it! that i decided to build my DIY 2DOF simulator, i did my research and found dozens of Rig design but the one that got my attention was the CXC Simulator Racer design, to me it is the most sleek looking but at a $67k US dollars price tag it is just a little pricy for me, so! I decided to build a replica.

    Here is a picture of the original Rig i will post more of my progress on how i build my CXC Racer Replica Rig...

    @Milton Amaya , good stuff to see another sim builder here.
    Yes, CXC is $14k of parts with a 500-600% markup.
    Theres a few options for seat mover .
    SCN actuators, 12v 200 watt 25:1 box ratio motors.
    Control boards like the JRK or Arduino with h-bridges can be used also.
    Have a dig through the threads and ask as you need to .
    Cheers, David.

    Nice job, did you allow enough room for the computer to slide inside the frame?

    That is great progress for 1 day! Did you draw up your design first, or just start building?

    Can i Suggest some Triangle corner Gussets on the rear of the seat frame. Last thing you want is any torsional Twist on that part. Also the Higher up you have your Rod end mounts the More leverage you have. Lifting from below the shoulder's isn't exactly ideal as far as the mechanical leverage is concerned. Granted Its a seat mover so Its not like the motor's are lifting a Great deal of weight, But every wee bit of leverage counts.

    OK cool, the graphics card is a bit slow, so it may struggle with games, mind you, wind down the resolution and you should be ok.
