    here is a picture of the original version and then the recent one with the modifications in red. Basically, just made it wider allowing the tie rods to go on the outside of the motor arms rather than on the inside. You can also see the pivot point for the traction and the arch on the rear where I will attach scooter wheels. The final step is to make the platform and 3rd motor mount. I hope to do that by the end of next week

    Looks like you are getting close, have you hooked everything up to the new frame yet?

    I made some progress, painted, reassembled, and tested. Everything is working :)
    I still need to work on the third motor and platform for the back wheels to roll on. I've been tinkering with ideas for a structure to hold the monitor/computer that at the same time has wheels to move around and lift everything vertically when not in use. I am thinking of an arm either from the front or from the side with a swivel point for the monitor.

    Just finished welding most of the platform for the 3rd motor and plate for the wheels to roll on. The bar on the left side is where I plan to put dolly wheels and arms to support the monitor and pc. I am eager to fully finish it but it takes time. At least I can play with it now, I most say learning to drive a sim is quite different and difficult. I keep spinning and missing the apex every turn lol platform.jpg
