    Hi !
    Here is a presentation of my finished simulator.
    I use 2 Smolka 24 V motors, arduino uno card, a sabertooth 2X25et card and a power supply 24V.

    Here first the patterns that I made to make the simulator :

    Here are two images of naked frame after welding :

    And here ended:

    Finally a video I made today to present my project :


    I also realized a sequential shifter DIY I use the Logitech G27 steering wheel but I think it must be presented in another section right?

    Otherwise I currently use X-SIM and wish to pass on SIMTOOLS. I course so the forum to understand its operation.

    Thank you :)

    Nice job @leaedman, thanks for sharing the photos and video.

    You will find all the code and resources on Xsimulator you need to run your rig with SimTools, plus plenty of help from community members. So do post a query if you have any questions.

    Simtools seems easier to use. My only problem is the English language. Happily there google translate :D

    SimTools is pretty easy to use and there is good documentation.

    Some people post in their native language plus google translate, if they are not sure if something important is clear. Often there is a member who is also fluent in both languages and can clarify if needed.

    I am working with him to help him to setup SimTools.

    I sent him my Arduino code (I am adding this resource :p). It seems that he need few coins to download some plugins :rolleyes:

    Ok, I'll do well (D'accord, je vais faire comme cela) thanks :)

    thank you for your help Wanegain, no problem for the shifter but I do not know if I can show here or if you have to open a new thread? (Merci pour ton aide Wanegain, pas de problème pour le shifter mais je ne sais pas si je peux montrer ici ou si il faut ouvrir un nouveau sujet ?)

    ... And Thank you prodige :D

    @leaedman you have enough coins now to access plugins. I am looking forward to seeing how your rig goes with SimTools.

    My pleasure @leaedman, I am sure many of us are keen to help you get started with SimTools and look forward to your impressions.

    Thank you RacingMat, You're one of the people who inspired me the most for my project initially. :)
    Then I learned about the French forum PCSHM.
    (Tu es l'une des personnes qui m'a le plus inspiré pour mon projet au départ, J'ai ensuite tout appris sur le forum français PCSHM)

    Good news, the simulator works with SIMTOOLS. I still have to make adjustments on the effects but it works :thumbs
    I tested with ELITE DANGEROUS and ASSETTO CORSA. However, I have not managed to run CityCarDriving for my children. I'll post a video with Elite :D

    SIMTOOLS is really easy, it's great! :cheers
