    Bueno, por fin he encontrado un poco de ayuda en estos días y he estado construyendo mi simulador. Me utilizado motores de limpiaparabrisas, aunque tuvimos que modificar el eje para conectar el potenciómetro.

    Well, I've finally found some help these days and I've been building my simulator. I used wiper motors, although we had to modify the shaft to connect the potentiometer.

    Hice un agujero para atornillar un perno 6 mm donde puedo sostener mi potenciómetro

    I made a hole to screw a 6mm bolt where I can hold my potentiometer

    We have manufactured our own potentiometer with hall sensor using a small blender bearing with glue and thermal silicone. It does not stop a very fine work but I assure you that it is very effective

    For the chassis we modified an old cockpit and we added a cardan shaft extracted from the direction of a car, in any scrapping you get at a good price.

    The seat is made of fiberglass and is lined and padded

    He unmasked the floorboard of my G27 to separate gas and brake pedals to put one on each side of the steering shaft, soon I would like to change my g27 ring by one of Kart

    For the electrical part I used a sparkfun monster moto shield plate with a 600w power supply and Arduino Uno R3 with the SMC3 code in mode 1

    This is the result of my 2dof Kart simulator, it is a very simple and cheap system to build, the price of the materials for its construction approximately 400 €. Upload some video so you can see how it moves.
