    Got working on the wind sim. Can't do much more until radioproffi comes up with a better mount for wheel. Just sitting here and looking at the rig. The mount is just to weak. image.jpeg

    The fans are for when I race open top cars, it really adds to immersion since the fan speed correlates with in game speed.

    nice wind blowers, too bad i'm not a fan of openwheellers..
    anyway, how bad wheel mount shakes? did you turn on max torque on the wheel?

    Max torque lol, the wheel base starts to drop when I just put wheel on there, I tried it with 10 percent torque and I thought I had an extra dof on the wheel mount stem. I think the builder is making a revised wheel mount.

    lol. i guess my rigidity with af may be caused by different mount of the wheel stand to the base

    image.jpeg Can you post a pic of you stand please. Also what holder are you using for your keyboard, can you post a pic of that, thanks. I think my wheel base is double the weight and torque of the Af. The MiGE servo with fans and mounts weighed 41 lbs or around 19kg. That's not even with wheel.

    Hi hazardic

    That is an awsome rig.

    Yes i did, it is getting so hot that i cannot touch it :/ no idea what to do.
    My friend say that it might be settings pushing motor/PWM board over its limits...
    Can i go into config some how to check it ? You can send me mail about it Radio :)
