    Hi. My name is Alexander. I built 2dof racing seat. I want to share with you the report. I don't want to torture people by my Googlish, so mostly is a photo report. These photos were taken at different times, so sometimes design on them varies.

    Article about this sim in russian. Google translate.

    I used wisper motors from Daewoo Lanos. 12V, 30W, ~45rpm
    Controller, firmware, motor drivers are self made.

    I finished the device about a year ago, but the decoration panels added a week ago. Now the device is as follows:

    Great job @Simal, thanks for sharing your sim.

    Can you tell me where you got the uni joint from as I have been searching for one like that.

    I think we would all like to know more about the custom controllers and firmware, though I appreciate Googlish makes that a bit of a challenge at times.

    Another custom controller , cool , yes agree @noorbeast would love to know more.
    As in I can see how its made by the schematic but it will have a code simular to an Ard I believe,
    Did you use AVR or C to code it. ?
    Nice rig for sure.

    I'm from Ukraine, so i bought joint here (~$4) and cross here (~$3)
    Yes, it's AVR atmega88. I never programed Arduino, it's C.

    Hi,
    I really like the joint that you are using but i can't found out where to buy them. The Cross "thing" is easy to find but i can't see the other part (this one). Maybe i only need the specific name of it so i would find them.
    Anyone know here where to get them together?

    That part is from old soviet car, so it's easy to find it in post-soviet countries (Russia, Ukraine, etc.). I'm not sure you can buy it in Vienna. But you can try to searsh that part by "part number" - 2101-2201023, or use similar part from some other RWD car.
