    OK, time for my own little thread.

    My Parts:
    Arduino Uno ( changed the clone with a original R3)

    12v 100a server power supply (HP DPS-1200FB)

    Link: HP DPS

    2 DC brushed motors (12v 370w 50:1)

    Link: 90ZYT

    2 contactless potentionmeters (RTP180LVEAA)

    Link:RTP180LVEAA

    for the potentiometers I needed two connectors

    For some first testing i bolted everything on a wooden plate.

    first the seat to find balance

    after that I added the bass shaker and the ball joints

    I mounted the motors a little bit higher so the lever can spin freely. I tried to get the magnets on the shaft by using wood but that din´t work out well an will lead to my profile avatar later on.

    Everything ready for smc utils! :D

    After everything worked well in smc, i booted up Sim Tools 2.4.1 for the first time and set up the software with help from bastiuscha.

    Of course I clicked on output testing without thinking. Motor one immediately lost his shit and started moving at high speed. The movement was so hard that the magnet fell off and I had to cut power to stop the motor.

    I rolled back to simtools 2.4.0 and found a better solution for my magnets.

    Everything works now, time for life for speed!

    I crasht in a wall and this time, motor two started spinning.
    With my weight on the seat, the motors wiggled so much, that the sensor lost the magnet for a short moment which leaded to the motor spinning around.
