  1. I'm reserving this top part to pin my latest build which will be an 80/20 extrusion chassis running a 3DoF seat mover with rear traction loss. My detailed build will be documented and most posted on xsim which links below in my signature. Here is the prototype sketch of the rig itself. The rig will not have triples monitors as it is being built for VR. ************************************************************************************** ************************************************************************************** I've finally decided to throw in the towel on the console racing era and move over to PC. This thread will describe my current and new DIY wooden racing chassis. I'll document what I can and I'm happy to field any questions and welcome any comments you may have on my progress and finished project. Thanks go out to Darin and Shaun for this community and to everyone here that inspired me in different areas of this project. I'll keep this post updated with any new additions and pictures while the posts below will detail the build. Happy racing!

  2. Good morning all... I have my setup up and running thanks to all the great info in this thread... Parts list 1. Sure Electronics AA-AB33182 4x100W at 4 Ohm Class D Digital Audio Amplifier Board and power supply 4. Dayton Audio BST-1 High Power Pro Tactile Bass Shaker 50 Watts 1. Sound blaster z series sound card (but using onboard audio for the shakers) Onboard set to quadraphonic both in Windows sound and Realtec Audio manager and volumes all set correctly. Wired as the photo shows.... I believe I have everything set up correctly in Sim Commander Chassis mode and I'm getting the correct feed back when clicking on each tire. My Problem is the feeling and strength of the shakers is completely underwhelming. I'm pretty new to this and no expert at tuning simvibe so I mostly use the the Output Tuning Wizard for now. I'm at a loss... Wondering if my current amp is just not powerful enough. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    R-Pod MkII : VR Enabled

    Current state of the build: Main build log starts ... Since Assetto Corsa came out, I've got the itch to build an updated version of my existing rig and I've now assembled all the parts necessary to start. My g25 has been replaced by Fanatec ClubSport Wheel base, both rims, the CSP v2s and the CSS Seq shifter. The shifter broke on my g25 unfortunately so I considerd that an excuse to upgrade. I've acquired a new seat and a new ulrawide monitor also. My previous rig looked like this: It's had a fair few modifications since then though with a monitor positioned behind the wheel and a shfter mount attached to the seat base. New Seat: Mini LFEs for Simvibe: Buttkicker amp: The amp and Mini LFEs were actually bought for me by a colleague who recently left my team. I asked him to reconsider but he insisted on me keeping them. So, this first job for the new build was to attach the Mini LFE's to the seat. In R-Pod Mk1, I had tested them by bolting them to the inside of the MDF seat base. I was singularly unimpressed so I thought long and hard about how to approach it for the new build. The seat can be mounted from the side or underneath. This allowed me to apprach the issue more directly. I bought a plate of 4mm aluminium, drilled some holes in it, Attached the Mini LFE's and bolted it to the bottom of the seat. The resulting experience is what I was hoping for with the vibreations being channeled through the whole frame: Aluminium plate: Holes drilled: Test mounting: Plate covered with blackboard vinyl and Buttkickers attached: Side mounts and seat rails bolted on: Hope to have more updates on the build next weekend.
  4. 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.
