  6. SimuCUBE based OSW kit with Acrylic case Servo Motor: MiGE 130ST-M15015 30Nm 10000ppr (40000cpr). PSU: Mean Well 480w/720w Peak (noiseless) 30Nm. Everything you need to get started, including the Momo wheel, and emergency stop button. This runs fanstastic. The only issue with it is some surface rust that's ONLY on the coupling and wheel bolts (pictured). It was in storage for about a month while I moved. I'm selling because I haven't used it in about the last year, sadly. It's probably only seen about 5-10 hours of runtime. EDIT: Decided to keep, ad removed. Thanks for the interest!

  10. Hello I am facing a problem with setting up my osw steering with rfactor 2.... There always comes this crazy jerking motion from the steering when (it seems like) grip level is high. The sound it makes is worrying also... Can anyone help to see how to resolve this (or this is normal??) Thanks in advance Cheers VID_20180909_182528.mp4
  11. OSW Leo Bodnar Fanatec USB convert inkl. spiral cable Fanatec Rim Standalone USB Conversion PCB for F1/BMW/Porsche rim. (I’ve got two!) make an offer
  12. Hello again, Today I have a brand new SRM (sim racing machines) USB and quick release conversion kit for Fanatec Clubsport rims. This kit was given to me by a fellow sim racer in exchange for some repair work I did. The kit is 100% brand new and has never been installed. This kit comes with an adapter to mount an aftermarket quick release to your Clubsport rim as well as the teensy LC PCB for converting the Clubsport rim to USB. This kit is meant for a 70mm QR1 quick release. Please note the 70mm holes are threaded, so the quick release should not have threads itself. If the quick release you are using does have threads you can drill out the threads in this adapter and use the threads in the aftermarket quick release. Also includes the upgraded DIN connector for connecting the coiled cable to the USB cable as shown in the pictures. This kit is for the BMW/Porsche/Formula rims but it may also work with the universal hub with some light modification (the Universal Hub uses a 12 pin connector rather than the 8 pin used by all other clubsport rims). Please note that this does not work with elite line of rims. Installation is rather straight forward if you are comfortable working with this type of stuff and have a bit of mechanical/electronic service ability. The hardest part is removing the stock quick release without putting too much force on the internal wiring such as that for the joysticks, shifters etc. The second hardest part is unplugging the stock Fanatec harness from the stock Fanatec PCB inside the rim, it is possible to cause damage if you are not careful and put too much force on the connector or solder joints. If you are not confident performing the installtion yourself I do offer installtion services out of Connecticut USA. You could either ship your rim to me or meet me if you are local. If you are buying this kit from me, I would perform the installtion for an additional $40 USD. In this case you would receive your rim back with the kit fully installed and functional, I would also instal the quick release you are using if you send it along with the rim. I have been working on sim racing hardware for approximately 5 years now and have worked with similar technology for many more years so your rim would be in good hands This kit, with the included DIN connector normally costs $89 GBP (approximately $122 USD) plus postage (approx. $21 USD). I am offering this kit brand new shipped (within continental USA) for $115 USD. Link to this item on the SRM website:
  13. Full Carbon fiber Roso F1 wheel which is made in Europe and weights less than 1kg. Currently has dial labels on it but original laser prints are still on there (see last pic) Its been converted with Leo Bodnar sli + 2 12 position rotary switches and is currently running with usb cord as per picture. (original sli also included) Due to LB sli limitations 1 button is non functioning (yellow) Can be installed to run without cable with the lifeline quick release that's also included. Lifeline quick release can be mounted to Thrustmaster, Logitech wheels using the provided adapters. Includes everything in the photo and comes in a nice hard case. Let me know if you have any other questions. Item located Melbourne $1000 USD $50 USD international shipping Thanks Sam
  14. I am having problems with simvibe. If you look at my setup, you will notice I have a LOT of devices hooked up. I don't know where to start in trouble shooting this issue. Software running at same time when racing; Simucube, Fanaleds, JoyToKey, EVGA OCX and Flow Control, plus various racing sim software. Occasionally I also have crewchief running but not since having this problem. Hardware: Gigabyte Z170 Gaming 7 mobo, i7-6700K oc to 4.2ghz, 16gb ram, 2 mvme ssd, 3 HDD, Asus Sonar video card, Evga 1080 ti hybrid, Evga 280CLC cpu cooler, SIM Rig: OSW DD wheel, Fanatec V3 pedals, Fanatec shifter, Fanatec handbrake, 2 - DSD button boxes, SimRacing Machine USB adapter for fanatec wheels, Fanatec BMW rim, Oculus Rift, Touch , 2 sensors, Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse Issue: In both AC and PCARS2, after about 5 minutes of racing. I lose my steering and pedals and then the game hangs up. If I close simvibe, then restart the games, they work fine. In one instance during a session of PC2, I had turned all modes off in simvibe. The game ran fine. I then turned on chassis mode and my throttle, in game, suddenly went to maximum. I had to close simvibe and PC2 to get fix it. Is anyone else having this type of problems getting all your hardware and software to behave with each other? It seems that Simvibe is the common denominator when problems arise.

  16. Hello, If you're impatient just skip down to the questions bit. I've been lurking this community for a long time, but now I have a good reason to post. My old Fanatec GT3 RS V2 is dying and I've decided to go all out for an OSW (Open Sim Wheel) setup. I've spent weeks researching like crazy and reading literally hundreds of forum pages here and at many other forums. I've even been using Google Translate to read French, German, and Italian forums which seem to have a lot of good information as well, even though it is tedious. I'm a big computer geek, but I'm not an electrical engineer so I'm learning as I go when it comes to power supplies and motor specs. I'll present a summary of the things I've learned to help others as I learn myself. Here are some examples of forum resources I've found on OSW primarily contributed by the famous "Beano": That last link is of particular interest as it's a fairly recent summary from Beano on the current state of things and it makes it sound like I can use an AKM motor with Simucube. After all the research it looks like I've gone through the entire history of OSW and much of the information is no longer up to date. Today I'm looking at a Simucube based build hopefully using a Kollmorgen AKM motor. I want the highest quality OSW wheel I can reasonably build and ideally I want 1:1 torque. I've checked out a number of vendors who sell OSW kits and found lots of Mige stuff but no Kollmorgen kits aside from what Dennis Reimer sold using an Argon controller (he closed up shop so that isn't even an option now). I'm located in Canada and the cost of parts with shipping and currency exchange is high so I'm trying to be as smart as possible about how I source everything. I'm going to see what my options are for motors locally before buying everything else foreign. When it comes to picking a motor I know the Mige is a great option, however if I'm doing so much work to get this researched and built I might as well upgrade a notch and not have to upgrade again. The Lenze might be a good choice and I might actually go with that, but can I do better? So I watched Barry at "Sim Racing Garage" and his reviews of the high end Bodnar systems and here's what I learned: Sim Racing Garage: Bodnar SimSteering Specs: Bodnar SimSteering V1 Motor = Kollmorgen AKM52G-ANCNEJ00 - Encoder based (EJ encoder) Bodnar SimSteering V2 Motor = Kollmorgen AKM52G-ANCNC-00 - New resolver (C resolver – AKA "Smart feedback device") Both V1 and V2 use the XP DNR480 Power Supply for AKM52 based motor. Barry also tested an OSW kit with a Kollmorgan AKM53G-ANCNR-00 motor which was popular (also resolver based ("R-" in the part number), powered via Argon). Apparently this new Bodnar V2 system is a step ahead of the V1 system using the new "smart" Resolver based feedback according to Barry. How to read a Kollmorgen part number: AKM53G-ANCNC-00 translates to: AKM series Frame size 5 Rotor stack length 3 Winding Type G International Standard Mount (A) Smooth Shaft (N) IP65 connectors (C) No brake (N) Smart feedback device Resolver (SFD) (C-) Standard motor without shaft seal (00) The "C-" in the part number is the resolver. Or, if the motor has the "EJ" code instead that means "10000 PPR digital encoder". Where to find Kollmorgen motor details: I pulled the catalog and motor selection guide from here and dug in. The numbers are daunting, and this is where I'm starting to get lost. Power Supplies: The "Mean Well SDR-480-48" seems to be a popular choice that is packaged with kits, however I want a power supply that has no risk of straining. Beano presents some other options here: With that, I wonder about using something like this: However, it does appear that Bodnar is powering AKM motors with only 480 watts. SimuCube / IONI: Kollmorgen motors are not listed in the Simucube motor table here. Questions: I'm pretty sure I want more than an AKM52 for torque. Is an AKM53 enough, or do I dare consider an AKM54? As the motor gets bigger you get more torque, sure, but you also lose out on other aspects such as speed and responsiveness, I think. I don't know much about the motor winding type differences. It seems like most motors are using the "G" type winding (Like AKM53G), are there any other options I should consider? I hear the "G" winding is optimized for more torque. Beano has a setup that uses the "K" winding. What kind of power do these Kollmorgen motors take? From the spec documents I gathered they are "Brushless servo motors, AC". Can the Simucube / IONI power them? I think so...but I'm not positive. On page 61 of the Kollmorgen catalog they list the AKM specification numbers in a big table, with different columns under different voltage values. How does that voltage stuff work here? Suppose I have an 800 Watt PSU supplying 48 V to the Simucube with IONI Pro HC, and the IONI supplies a max amperage of 25 A to the something voltage? I know Watt = Amp X Volt, but I'm getting lost here. How do I read that fancy table? Simucube does not support resolvers, it only supports encoders so I would be forced to use an Argon for a Resolver motor. Should I stick with the encoder, or consider abandoning Simucube for Argon? Simucube seems like the better choice, I just wonder if I'd be missing out on something with the encoder. I understand it may be possible to get an encoder with even higher resolution than 10000 PPR? "You will get better positioning and thus feel finer FFB forces.....after 32k PPR though, no advantages......between 16k and 32k the best for is racing use I believe.... " - Beano Are there any other good forums or resources I haven't yet found that could help me out? I suppose that's enough for a first post. I haven't even begun to figure out wheel details yet, just getting this motor and Simucube stuff sorted out is my first step. Thanks. JonnyK

  18. Hi. 1. Does anyone know where I can purchase the cheapest adapter for a Thrustmaster Ferrari GTE F458 Wheel to an OSW wheel (exact OSW Motor shaft to Steering Wheel picture below) 2. Is there a USB external adapter/board for the Thrustmaster like the Fanatec wheel (picture below) Thanks!
  19. hi so i've been with my wheel and other things, for a few days now. mostly spent time with AC and PC2. i think... i think i haven't done something right with the configuration, or perhaps my expectations are too high. certainly it's not bad, and there was a race in a Lotus i had that was just amaazzzzzziiiinggggggg, as part of my messing around: i reduced the settings in AC to 0, other than gain, which i left at 70 (i wanted to isolate the Simucube settings) I have just started using my wheel as i got it - i haven't tried to get MMOS installed, or clicked through to the IONI drive on the Simucube configurator - so firstly could anybody please tell me if that is the wrong thing? i followed the instructions that were sent by SimRacingBay - (who, by the way,k have simply been incredibly helpful - and generally awesome people) - which was basically flash the firmware with the most current online, and use it. And so back to AC - I then play with various settings in the Simucube to get two particular reactions I think are lacking / below expectation 1) if i'm driving, say 2nd gear, revs very high, and i press the clutch, then as the revs start screaming, i'd expect to feel that; i don't. and then were i to let the clutch back up, i'd expect to feel a jolt as clutch engages, revs go down and we are powered by throttle agaiin 2) understeer. if i've buggered up a corner, and i'm now understeering, i'd expect to feel it in the wheel going a light lighter. i've had this with previous wheels do this.l screw up the corner, and it's like all resistance is gone on the wheel. with osw, in AC with the settings i've described (gain 70%) the wheel is as hard as it ever was to steer. it doesn't feel like i lost anything.
  20. hi there - so i've decided to take the plunge and go for a full on kit, and remarkably, within literally three or four days everything is on its way: prosim h shifter heusinkveld ultimate pedals small motor osw from sim racing bay what i don't have is a wheel and buttons to attach to the drive. i've been playing racing games for, well, decades now technically, but i've never bought serious kit, this is the first time i've gone outside the commercial sphere. this is how i'm justifying this intense cost: that over the timeline, i've been pretty thrifty since i've been on logitech and thrustmaster... what i'm trying to say is: i have no idea what i am doing. the less complicated the better when it comes to fitting this stuff together, and this becomes actual criteria for the wheel, needs to pretty simple to attach to the drive. i did ask for the fanatec QR adapter to come with the osw bundle, in case that's an easy option. but basically: what would u guys recommend for me to buy in order to finish off this potential masterpiece, regarding the rim / buttons? bearining in mind ease of installation is going to be more of a key factor than realistic touch or indeed price. any / all suggestions welcome. this is important i get right and this is the area i'm absolutely not confident. the other pieces i felt were easier to select because of the reviews. wheel + buttons, separate / combo, fanatec / custom etc. is much harder to get a good idea as to what would work best for me. thanks!
