Hello, there! I am building my own steering wheel with force feedback. I've planned out most of the setup, but there are a few things that I don't know for sure what are better options. One of them is motor. Since I will use gear to attach wheel to the motor, I'll need the mottor to be able to turn faster by itself than it's supposed to turn wheel(the ratio will be around 2:1 - motor turns 2x faster than wheel-, but I can still adjust this). What I need to know is: what kind of motor will work. I assume that 12V motor is enaugh? But what other specifications? What speed, what torque, what else parameters? Thanks!
Hello I just finished my homemade steering wheel. Wheel is made from layers of mdf, hydrodipped for carbon finish. Handles are mdf too, finished with rubber spray. "display" is just a dummy cause i use VR but its exactly real size, easy to install lcd if needed. 3 x 12 pos rotary switches 2 x thumbwheel rotary encoders 8 x Knitter switces Martin Ascher Paddle Shifters You can see some build pictures here http://s121.photobucket.com/user/PahaMaku/library/F1 steering wheel
Timmy P posted a topic in Sim Racing Rigs / CockpitDont hate me.. I combined the two! Does this make my sim games feel arcadie? lol. It had to fit the theme of the room. And it's far enough along to call "done". But there are a lot more gauges and LED indicators I would like to install. I made a video of it in its current state and would like to share it. I have lots of photos as well, of the build process.. There is a thread "Hydro Thunder sim Cockpit, the build thread". But it has been Archived and closed? So I'll get to the build photos later but for now here is my custom arcade racing machine in its current state . Its all Fanatec controls.. CSR wheel and Clubsport pedals and shifter. My shifter is the H shift only version. The switchable unit was 2 month backorder when I bought it over a year ago. But I love in nonetheless. My button controls are read by a Symprojects JC32 and my gauge control is Symprojects ProGauge. Their products are awesome. And have great support.
This Project is currently on Hold for a few months. It is roughly half complete. Everything was built using hand power tools. Most materials were cheap, excluding plexiglass and vinyls. I'm choosing the VR route, so triples won't apply for my rig. Not getting into details this time around ,but stay posted. PS: Do you like my plexiglass Air foil? Its connected to my G29 brake pedal. Works as a brake light It Glows Red, or any other color programmed.
