    Yes, its probably one of the most complex bits of kit that I have built and now I am modifying (from what I have learnt in testing) and re-building it all out of steel. Unfortunately the aluminum parts just were not up to all the stresses of throwing around my full weight. Will also be adding some extra bits for the thigh pressure system to make it even more complex..:rolleyes:.

    New ball transfers turned up, way better quality then the furniture ones that I purchased locally and they have a nylon ball = quiet.

    I'm glad they turned out to be much better ones. I'll have to keep these in mind myself.

    Do you feel that wiper motors would have enough torque with the required range of motion to give good feedback in the lateral G direction. In particular be able to drag a harness left/right and actuate thight paddles. Fast enough with sufficient force?

    Cannot answer, as I have never used wiper motors.
