    Hello everyone,

    So I have decided to move on from the mainstream sim racing, coming from a Logitech G920. I decided the first step is to upgrade to a Direct Drive wheel -(and DIY load cell pedals, load cell handbrake, and a realistic sequential shifter) . I am a rally racer, so my hardware and software goals focus on Rally. Eventually, when my wallet allows I will continue with a DIY motion setup.

    I am EU based and decided that a DIY OSW is what I need, but I need some advice/clarification. Based on the granite devices and simucube guides and wiki, and some build threads I found, I composed a list of parts I will need for my wheel build.

    The list:

    - large MiGe with Biss-C Encoder(+2x 3m cables (?) included):
    I got a price offer for ~345 EUR shipped for the small MiGe, still waiting for a price on the large MiGe,I assume it will be around 400 EUR max.

    - Ioni Pro / Pro HC:
    179 EUR /199 EUR . Is there a real difference? (going for the 30nm mige)

    - Power Supply, 48V.
    I sourced 2 PSU in my country that seems to fit the requirements. Are these ok? Is 600W enough or should I go for 1000W ?(big mige):

    https://variometrum.hu/tapegysegek-kategoria/Stabilizalt_tapegyseg_230V_48V_600W

    - I will make my own mounting brackets, and steering wheel adapter.
    - do I need any specific cables, adapters, ect. ? Do I need the emergency stop button, where to get it from? Anything else not on my list?

    Thanks in advance!
