    Hello everyone.
    My name is Ricardo Moraes and I am developing a 2D compact sim for use with the Oculus Rift in Flight Simulators, Car and especially for NoLimits2.
    I've done another project a long time ago using the Velleman k8055 with the Sabertooth 1x12 for x-sim. But I noticed that x-sim is outdated and I decided to migrate to SimTools.
    I am following the post of RufusDufus whom I already thank immensely for the detailed scheme, UNO code and SMC3 software. I was impressed with my first tests. I still have a lot to pack but I'm already very satisfied with the result. Here are some pictures.

    I'll do it as soon as possible, but I'm testing Live for Speed, I need to collect coins or donate (but the money is short) to be able to download the other plugins. For now it's working with x-sim on arduino.

    Hey Ricardo, it's looking good! One thing I noticed though is that it looks like your power supply fan grill seems blocked and it doesn't look like you have any heat sinks or fans on your motor controllers. Those all may need some better cooling to keep from having thermal protection cut in. Or maybe you are already on all that and just aren't showing it in your photos. Have fun!

    I saw your project and I confess I was inspired by it to do mine. Wonderful. It's a shame that Aluminum is so expensive here in Brazil.

    I've been thinking about that, I decided to put these CPU coolers I've been here for a long time and they're working perfectly well on the engines like in the images below.

    Sorry I did not understand your question but here are some pictures of the ventilation system I made for the 12V, Arduino and Ibt_2 source. I put 2 coolers one pulls the air in and the other removes it.

    Follows a short video of running my 2dof motion at the request of the friend noorbeast. There are still some adjustments but it is a small demonstration of how the structure works as a whole. I left the forces of acceleration and braking more intentional on purpose. I'm still learning how SimTools works slowly. As the purpose is a 2dof sim for flight simulators and NoLimits2 I have not yet made the G27 structure. But I'll be starting to do it soon enough.

    Kudos to @Zed who also made a hefty donation, you now have plenty of credit for quite some time.

    Please do post some updates once you get some other games sorted.

    As soon as I get the other plugins I will do the video updates without a doubt. What I can help with in the community can count on me. Once again my most sincere thanks @Zed and @noorbeast.
