    why did you get a 330mm wheel and not a 300mm?

    Such a big change in diamater requires to lengthen the shifter paddles-if you use them(i see too many extra shifter knobs :)).

    Can you give us some feedback on how the g27 motors "handle" the larger wheel?

    Thanks.

    Because the steering wheel 330 mm price is lower and much better finish :thumbs
    The paddles shifter will be changed soon (during delivery).

    I did not understand the last question but the force feed back appears softer, less hard. Sure, this is not the FFB of a Fanatec but not disturbing ;)

    I mean how is the force feedback with the new wheel?
    Stock vs 330mm?

    Ok, the FFB will not change. It's just less powerful than originally (google translate :confused:), seem to have the force to 50% in settings.
    Otherwise the driving experience is more immersive with 330mm. I love that :cool::thumbs

    Bon boulot , les sensations doivent excellente.
    Combien fait d'épaisseur ton adaptateur ?
    Good job, sensations are excellent. How thick is your adapter?

    I did not measure it but I think it is about 1 cm, not more. It is aluminum and the screws are supplied with.

    Pour l'adaptateur il y a encore mieux (malheureusement j'avais déjà commandé l'autre avant :(). C'est mazak515 qui les fait, il est du métier. Astucieux les 2 ouvertures pour passer les câbles (j'ai dû découper le plastique du support d'origine de mon côté :confused:)

    I want to know which hardware do you people use for your control of motors?
    Also which type of motors do you use?
    Can you please post here some specifications of the hardware you people use?
    Also do you use any kind of software for the simulation purpose? Which one?

    @TiffWiding you need to ask such questions in your own thread in the appropriate section, not clutter the thread of another member: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/diy-motion-simulator-building-q-a-faq.31/

    In preparation to asking a question first have a good look through the FAQs, as they cover things like motors with supplier links, control boards of different types, power supplies, building tips and tricks, plus a whole lot more: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/

    Very nice, I hesitate to make a mod on my driving but I'm afraid that with a wheel 330 force feedback is low on a logitech DFGT

    Awesome sim, will be using your plans for my system as it is very neat. Will be using wheelchair motors so will need to make some changes to the mounting brackets.
