    Hi all,

    A couple of weeks a go i begin sim world.
    I bought a Logitech G920, but i hate make a big handbrake with a simple button, and same story for the gearbox ... horeful

    So i made a shifter and a handbrake by myself.

    Based on aluminium part recycle from my work, i just bought a shift knob, a 12 bit DSD controller and a carbon pin to create the entire system.

    Here are the picture :

    Now it's even more realistic !!!

    Next step is to made a dashboard ( shiflight, rpm meter, ... ) with an arduino

    Some news asap.

    En espérant voir une vidéo un de ces jours, ce serait génial. J'aimerai faire le mien aussi petit. :p
