    Hi everyone.
    Some years ago I made my own simulator, but after a breakdown in my computer's hard drive, I lost all the information and programs that made it work and did not use it again.
    After several years with the simulator catching dust I have decided to revive it, but this time, I want to modify the electronics to SMC3.
    To build the simulator use:
    -40mm square iron tube
    -2 windscreen wiper motors from Citroën Xara at 12v
    - Stabilizer bar rods from Citroën Xara
    -1 direction label for a Ford Fiesta
    -2 H bridges IBT-2
    -1 Arduino ONE clone
    -2 10k potentiometers
    -A Peugeot 207 seat
    -A Dell printer power supply
    As you can see, I used car scrap parts and although it is true that the engines lack some power, I can assure you, this simulator gave many hours of fun.
    Here I leave some photos of the manufacturing process of the Simulator.

    Good DIY hours we stuck on that date :grin. In the end you made a very solid and clean construction, in addition to a fantastic operating result for the components that were at hand :cheers

    hey vicente!
    looks great! simple, on a budget, but also effective and clean!

    i plan to build a similar styled sim for me...

    do you have a picture with the wiring ( motors, ibt‘s, arduino and pots?)
    would be great!

    and do you know how powerful your wipermotors are? ( how many watts?)
    was it necessary to ground them?

    and, do you have videos with your rig in motion?

    thank you in advance!
    and once again, very nice idea ;)
    i also like the way you connected the pots!

    greets
