    Hey man, Really Like how compact your one ended up.

    Any chance you got any design specs and measurements you would like to share?

    Also really keen to see a video of it.

    Maybe I could put some specs after I finnished it. I don't have any on "paper" right now so I have to mesure everyting afterwards. I will try to uppload an video soon.

    I use pitch, roll, sway and surge... think it´s working nice now. So it`s more like 2 axis and 4 dof:think

    This is really a very nicely looking and moving rig. Congratulations!!
    I recommend adding a small amount of 'heave' (same direction as 'surge') for feeling the road bumps and jumps. Just a little bit may already be sufficient. On my 2 DOF rig it made a huge difference, and you get it without any additional effort. And finally some transducers will definitely further improve the immersion.

    Hey man, Just wanted to follow up,

    Finally upgraded my Gear and Rift arrived, Time to upgrade my frame, and once that's built will raise it and add the motion underneath it.

    Hoping you might have had time to do a quick napkin sketch with some measurements on it.
