    Love the gear stick and real brake calipers (not necessary but looks cool). Unfortunately there is allot wrong with the two actuators connected to the seat - my guess is that they are using the wrong universal joint which lets the seat twist allowing the oscillation that you can often see (those oscillations would drive me mad..).

    Yeah I reckon the traction loss is overdone, but horses for courses as they say.He has probably adapted a complete hydraulic braking system for the rig, probably has something rigged up under the calipers it would have to feel like the real thing because it is. Just my cursory observation. any other opinions?? Bloody great rig!!

    This guy must know his sh....t If you watch the other videos you can see it. I also would change some things but man that rig is a beast... I am sure he does not get faster laps on it but yeah, who cares if he is having as much fun as I think he is having.

    I found the 8 actuator He has two under the seat. I guess he tries to do oversteer and understeer??? Is that posible? Shouldnt be both farder away?
    Any ideas for this " weird" setup? Thanks
