    My Motion Simulator:
    2DOF, DC motor, JRK
    Kit can be purchased here:
    http://sim-pli.city/collections/all/products/pre-tested-direct-drive-wheel-kit

    Kit includes everything you see except:
    - Computer Case
    - Power Cord
    - Steering Wheel

    The prices have been raised on kits. Ollie now sends it even more assembled than he used to and also tests each unit for 30min before packing and shipping it. Each kit comes with a checklist and print-out of these tests. For example the power supply was already fully wired so all you had to do was plug in connectors to boards. All boards came preinstalled with standoffs for easy mounting. Amazing workmanship by Ollie on all the details.

    Kit Cost: $1310 shipped to U.S. -> UPS Express

    This thread is still in progress, as I need to print some back plates and add some rear connectors on the panel.

    Ollie ships this ready to just plug and play, no soldering, etc, just connect things together and install the software.

    I used this guide by Troy Schulz for flashing and installing the software, that part of the process takes about 10-15 minutes.

    You can have this mounted in a case and running laps within 2-3 hours. The longest part was drilling holes in case.

    Here are some pictures I have at the moment. More to come once I finish the back panels and make it look good. But right now I'm having to much fun using it. :)
