    Hi! I am working from 9 months in a quadruped autonomous robot called Jizzy :|
    needless to say that without all the 3DOF platform experience I just could to think to face a project like this.
    The challenges about are fascinating and my passion to the BostonDynamics robots is too high so let's try!
    The main difference between my 3DOF and the actual project is that I had to learn to program a board control (Arduino MEGA2560) while with my 3DOF I had only to set the xsimulator parameteres of my 3 Jrk12v12.
    I could to speak about this project for hours but I think it's bettere to avoid to anoying here, just I like it and I hope to achieve big results before the end of the summer :)
    Here a little vid about (old vid, Jizzy first attempts of walk! but you can understand what is Jizzy):

    Ahhh bsft, you are the dream man mate!! Just some words and you giving me a lot of desire to get back on the seat with some powerful pistons to shake me in a damn racing track!! :D
    I notice it's all different now, xsimulator seems to be A LOT optimized and tested! and I feel how I am totally OUT of this world now :\
    Have you a youtube channel? Are you involved in some project now?

    Very cool project @AldoZ and I imagine it would be extremely challenging.

    albeit complex, and got great results! All peoples can got extremly hot achieves, just desire, (money..), and readings off course :)

    Ah great! I see you organizing racing events!!
    I can just imagine how much work you've done to achieve that!
    And I hope you going to produce something like a super 6DOF motion system for your events!
    You just can do it, you have the knowledge about and I am sure it should to be something of TOTAL!

    I am not organizing events, I am just the entertainment, and I charge a small fee for pay to play.
    I am filling a market for motion that no one else does, families , parties and small functions. The other sim guys in Sydney will not go to these events.
    My interest is not corporate events.
    No chance I am doing a 6DOF, 2 DOF is just fine and does the job nicely.
