    Thanks!

    I was thinking about your rig when I thought maybe I could add a bunch of stuff to get the illusion of heave. I really like your thigh strap and how your paddles squeeze when you dip down. Its crazy to me how you (or at least I) just don't know how something will really work until you're driving it in vr. When my seat dipped down as I drove a valley I let out a noise of excitement for sure. I do hope to come back to heave as it's the ultimate sensation imho.

    Totally love your take on the push/pull SFX actuator... Very smart using the weld and seems to make the most sense. I sent you a message as I too am going this route for TL and surge and was hoping I could pick your brain a bit regarding some technical questions about printing files for your slider, extrusion length etc. I appreciate your contributions and time.

    Thanks for the kind words.
    I have thought about the backrest sliding up and down, maybe something for the future.


    I have been busy with a newborn for the last few months. Not much progress on the sim at the moment.
