    What a waste of power and steel/alu. They could have done the same thing without adding an extra 1000lb at least. :D

    Not defending their construction, but it is clear in the photos that it is made with a lot of carbon fiber elements. It is also stated so, along with aluminum, in the article, and no mention of steel. Speed of response was a main objective. In the video it appears to react and move very quickly in braking. Built in conjunction with Ferrari, who's new sim is probably quite similar. We do not know their design targets and these guys are not dorks. They completely understand low moving mass...go figure, they build state-of-the-art racing cars!

    That said...very impressive actuators! Wish I had them. Probably MOOG, you think they'd settle for a couple hundred $ each? :lol:

    Carbon fiber would be even more expensive, but very light indeed. I still see no point in that construction, but they must have their reasons for it.

    Those actuators for a couple hundred? SIGN ME UP! :)

    They are indeed MOOG developed actuators. The little birdy tells me they are pneumatic assisted, electromechanical actuators. Very interesting tech.....
