    Hey guys,

    still in the planning area for my Motion sim and will post up pictures of my current one.

    But looking at Design's Why do people do 2DOF that is only the chair and then solid mount the steering+Pedals.

    I've never had in IRL racing just my seat move, and if it did I would be extremely worried. just trying to understand if I'm missing something here.

    Mainly due to lowest budget and ease of build.
