    It is my school project. Plan was 2dof playseat, but it would have been to expencive.

    Old Mercedes Benz seat, really comfortable.
    The frame is made of steel.

    Button box, ebrake, shifter are connected to keyboard chip.
    For displays(tm1638 and MAX7219) im using Arduino UNO and SimHub

    Pedals are working with 2potentiometers and they are connected to my logitech wheel. I took em from my old pedals which came with wheel and used hot glue for (mounting?!?!)For more realistic feel i made my own pedals. Gas is made with 2springs what were in old pedals. For the brake i found stronger spring.
