    Hi all,
    I'm french, I'm building a simulator with a real kart chassis.
    This simulator is not dynamic, maybe a possible evolution in the future.
    My desire is to keep all the originals command of the kart.
    I put some picture of the project to show the evolution.
    I'm a karting coach, so this project will be a tool with Kartkraft to make virtuals sessions.
    The next step is the installation of the Simucube 2 Sport.

    I found Sim Dashboard, very fun to make a home made "AIM" or "Alfano"

    Endpoint project !
    Bodyworks is the last step.
    Firsts testings are so promising. Some littles settings and it will be 100% functional.
    My firsts tests drivers are very happy with this simulator.
    Great thanks to NSH Racing, a very professional partner

    That's really cool! I raced karts for a few years and having that physical force required to turn the front wheels and jack up the frame would be a great learning tool over just a static wheel and pedals.

    Oh but now that I think of it . It makes sense because karts dont have a suspension
