    Think the highest intensity games I'll be jumping into are Dirt series, F1, and maybe Roller Coaster.

    Any seasoned vets out there that key me in on if its a good combination, too much? too little?

    Why choose the lower speed motor in that list? Line 8 has the same specs but doubles the rpm, so would result in much faster sim speeds.

    NOORBEAST! hells yeah bro, I've gotta be blind as a bat! Yeah faster speeds for sure, I was envisioning 400mm/s for better realism. 40mm ctc lever arms, 100mm arms. Now, I had thought on going linear based off of @wannabeaflyer2 diy design, but figured the base platform may exceed space constraints. Definitely appreciate the thoughts and wisdom of those who have been there n done that!

    actually come to think of it, 40mm ctc lever arms, 100mm arm seems rather minuscule. Perhaps 150mm (6 inch), 300mm (12 inch) arms would be better?
