Works well i like it advanced version of buttkicker and cheap alternative to a motion simulator the sim vibe pretty much vibrates for bumps and down shifting throttle response etc works well with iRacing with the laser scanned tracks but some other games such as ETS2 it does not work to well

I run them on my pedals further back than whats pictured also under my seat and one careful installed inside my seat one under where my wheel is mounted as well and three mounted to rig itself.

I hope later this year to get the DIY motion kit so i can finish my rig but the main issue is not using it so i can finish it
i was in process of building i bought it inside to try the seat fitment and it never went back out to the shed again to be finished and in need of some paint especially around the welds

Sim vibe is awesome bit of kit if you have the money and works for shooters like BF4 and other games to if setup correct i really hope it works for the crew so i can feel the jumps and bumps and crashes :auto-swerve:

i also forgot to mention my girlfriend likes it when she uses it on rather rare occasion but hates it most of the time because sh can feel it through the floor of our house

I always like builds. They can inspire others and yourself :2thumbsup:

New set of actuators that are not as expensive as a D-Box setup

I think this is a clever solution. But for me, only a couple of bolts like that would fail quickly, i think. (Heavyworlder here)
It looks like a smart piece of kit, that actually works when setup right. As you can hear in the video, you will need to setup the motion simulation for each game and even for separate tracks to get the max out of it. That is a big hassle if you just want to play. So software updates, profiles and fine tuning from the manufacturer are key. But they seem to be dedicated.
This might be one of those things i will consider buying in the future. :D

Did not want to start a new thread for this so I will drop it here. Here is your ultimate driving setup, just a little pricey.

The Most Realistic Racing Simulator.

it's a nice setup but I don't like the way those screens are set up, it just doesn't look right to me. :(
