    Small upgrade with this new pedal.
    Change of my G29 by this Fanatec clubsport V3.

    After a few hours of driving, I find this pedal excellent.

    Very good update Damien. The brake have the load cell?
    Today I receive the prosimu scn6 similar to your rig the next few days I installed.

    Hi Giorgio.
    You will not be disappointed, once well adjusted, the SCN6 are great.
    You have a link on the manufacture of your simulator on this site?
    If you have any questions, do not hesitate ... ;-)

    Yes the V3 crankset uses a load cell for the brake, it's really great.
    My next purchase will be the formula V2 steering wheel (which comes out at the end of February) with a base V2.5 clubsport or a DD1 if my budget allows me ...
    it will replace my G29 which allowed me to start in simracing


    French
    Salut Giorgio.
    Tu ne vas pas être déçu, une fois bien réglé, les SCN6 sont supers.
    Tu as un lien sur la fabrication de ton simulateur sur ce site?
    Si tu as des questions, n'hésites surtout pas... ;-)

    Oui le pédalier V3 utilise un capteur de pression pour le frein, c'est vraiment génial.
    Mon prochain achat sera le volant formula V2 (qui sort fin février) avec une base clubsport V2.5 ou une DD1(fin avril) si mon budget me le permet...
    ça remplacera mon G29 qui m'a permis de débuter dans le simracing

    Great, I'll take a look at your work regularly. ;-)
    For sharing settings, it will be with pleasure.
    Yes the steering wheel Fanatec Formula V2 looks great, I can not wait to get it too ...


    French
    Super, je jetterai un œil sur ton travail régulièrement. ;-)
    Pour le partage des réglages, ça sera avec plaisir.
    Oui le volant Fanatec formula V2 a l'air génial, j'ai hâte de l'avoir aussi...

    Hi everybody.
    I just share the changes made to my simulator.
    First of all, as you can see on the 2 photos (img 6200 and img 6202), my G29 gave way to a Fanatec V2.5 base and a Formula V2 wheel.
    From my point of view, it's very good material.
    In addition, I put you video commented presentation of my simultaneous,
    but the comments are in my native language, in French so, here is what I present:
    - First, I show the jacks, then the subwoofer that I fixed under the simultateur, also making an opening in the floor so that the bass come to vibrate the seat.
    - Then I show the VR headset and the headphones.
    - After I talk about my pipe that allows me to drink during full grand prix or endurance races.
    Following the pipe, I arrive behind the seat where we see a bottle of water with an object inside.
    This is a small aquarium pump, it sends water into my mouth when I activate the black button to the right of the steering wheel (img6202).
    - Going back, I present the base, the steering wheel, my gloves and the seat.
    - To finish, I open the capot, I show the pedals Fanactec V3, the 2 power supplies, and I explain that I will redo the painting in 3 months (in black) and that the ventilator will be replaced by a blowing controlled with Simhub probably at the end of the year.
    Most of the equipment is presented in my previous posts.
    So much for the translation of comments:


    French
    Salut à tous.
    Je viens partager les changements apportés à mon simulateur.
    Tout d'abord, comme vous pouvez le voir sur les 2 photos (img 6200 et img 6202), mon G29 a laissé place à une base Fanatec V2.5 et à une roue Formula V2.
    De mon point de vue, c'est du très bon matériel.
    De plus, je vous mets la vidéo commentée de présentation de mon simulateur:

    Fantastic job my friend. I like too much the drink system
    I like too the coverage of the rig and i think after the painting and some adesive sponsor caming very beautiful.
    Fantastic step with fanatec components, i buy the podium DD1 and the F1 2019 wheel with podium paddle shift.
    I wait the fanatec delivery

    Thank you Giorgio
    I repeins all black and yes I would stick some adhesives ...
    Indeed, moving from G29 to Fanatec is an extraordinary gap.
    I take like you pallets podium but in September and I would also take the DD2 but only in 1 year or 2, I prefer to wait until everything is perfectly reliable and updated.
    The V2 steering wheel is great, you'll have fun, you just have to wait a little longer...

    French
    Merci Giorgio
    Je le repeins tout en noir et oui je lui collerais quelques adhésifs...
    Effectivement, passer du G29 à Fanatec est un gap extraordinaire.
    Je prends comme toi les pallettes podium mais en septembre et je prendrais aussi le DD2 mais seulement dans 1 an ou 2, je préfère attendre que tout soit parfaitement fiable et mis à jour.
    Le volant V2 est formidale, tu vas t'éclater, tu n'as plus qu'à patienter encore un petit peu...

    Hi. I took 3 years to do it but if I had the finances for all the materials from the beginning, I think that in 3 or 4 days everything would have been done

    French
    salut. j'ai mis 3 ans à le faire mais si j’avais eu les finances pour tous les materiaux dès le debut, je pense qu’en 3 ou 4 jours tout aurait été fait

    And finally here is the presentation of my room dedicated to simracing after a month of work.
    For not French speaking, here is what I explain in the video.
    The room is 6.70m ², so I have to add an air conditioner because with PCs, the temperature rises very quickly.
    In the video, I first introduce the cinema corner, stating that I would change obviously the TV.
    You can see the home cinema and the flycase house (with orange lid) which contains the mixer.
    And in the back, the other 2 speakers that I would fix directly to the wall to remove the feet.
    Then I mount the simulator side, with the foot I installed for laying my keyboard and mouse, the two screens, the Vive Pro base station and the fan that is now on the shelf, and not on the simu, which greatly reduces the vibrations.
    It's always on with a switch next to my steering wheel.
    Finally, I explain that would make a small base for the PC so that it is no longer on the ground and therefore sucks less dust.

    Et voici enfin la présentation de ma salle dédiée au simracing après un mois de travail.
