    7. 03 jaw coupler (for mount shaft motor with wormgear)
    8. 03 potentiometer
    9. 03 helical coupler (for mount out shaft wormgear witch potentiometer)
    --------------
    Yesterday, I tried connecting the engine and gearbox, and happily, the lift was strong and fast.

    Today I will continue to draw the structure of the rig

    A lot of editing is needed before doing this.
    I try to start doing the mechanical part this weekend

    nice project.. how do you connect upper platform with the base to get the movement for traction loss? what software you are using for 3d design?

    I connect as attachment picture , I use sketchup software for the design

    I'm hoping 1:10 will be enough. Try to get the correct balance to reduce the pressure on the gearbox

    Great to see your rig in action :thumbs

    Plugins for all games are installed via the SimTools PluginUpdater, make sure SimTools is closed, open the PluginUpdator, and drag the plugin zip file on to the PluginUpdator, which will then install it.

    It is a good idea to grab a copy of the SimTools manual, which explains plugin installation and everything else about SimTools and its configuration: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/rtfm-start-with-the-official-simtools-documentation.117/

    You can also find hand tips in the FAQs, like how to refine a motion profile: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/steps-to-create-a-motion-profile.228/

    Speaking of which, sway should lean away from a corner, yours seems to be opposite in the video, this is what SimTools expects in terms of axis configuration: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/which-way-to-set-simtool-axis-movements.230/

    Thanks for reply

    I followed the instructions you suggested and ran it successfully with dirt4 game (steam version)
