    successfully tested and confirmed definitely

    only (Edit) 60$ including the Ard (wiring and cooler extra) and you get an insane motor driver for two motors on a high level -> 60A/120A - what else!!!!!!!!!!!
    The durability of the half bridge has been successfully tested, as a dual half bridge driver the durability is not yet known.

    @Bobsyouruncle187 yesterday all my car fuses (directly after the PSU) have been blown, I have no replacement. Today I will go to my local dealer to buy some fuses and in the afternoon I will "shoot" the video.

    Uploading, from now you have to wait some minutes until the video is uploaded an rendered by youtube.
    One round Nord, BTW Snoopy Nord has not the same surface like the laser scanned tracks but the biggest bumbs...

    This afternoon I will upload a laser scanned track, there is a different shaking due to the detailed surface.

    Correct a very important factor to get the best immersion while driving a simulator.

    I also had this idea that kept running through my head but not daring to try it. Glad to see that it works very well.
    @Pit beautiful work :thumbs

    @value1 your are welcome! If you will upgrade I am please to help you :) BTW thank you for compliments, I am not a developer but an "experimenter".:thumbs

    Same car Pagani Zonda R now on Nurburgring track. This track has some nasty bumps and holes. Cant wait to drive Nord, I believe after 2 or 3 rounds my rig will be destroyed (probably some weld seams will be broken)
