    Hi
    I’m now happy with my 4 DOF system( PT actuators, Dbox style).
    Thanks to this community I’m improving my knowledge of this tools.
    Ok I want to ask, for driving sim, what is the most important DOF of the 6 we have?
    In the documentations it says sway and Surge then pitch heave then Surge.
    Personally I think Heave is the most important because it makes you feel the road bumps then pitch because it makes you feel the altitude changes of the road, then Surge because it makes you feel braking and gear changing .
    What do you think?

    I only really use Sway and Surge with a small amount of heave for this kind of setup myself.
    Take care,
