I hesitated for a long time on moving to VR, so when a used Oculus Rift CV1 showed up on Iracings forum for $150 bucks I jumped on them. Granted they are the "original" customer version and things have improved (screen door effect) they still provide enough of a mental break to get the immersion. Will be upgrading them to either the new Rift S, or the HP Reverb in the next couple of month's. Would really love to get the Pimax, but can't justify the cost.

Just started watching Le Man the series on Amazon Prime. About 20 minutes in they show Porche's simulator. You might want to look at that. It is laid out like your simulator is, but with 6 actuators.

Great. I didn't know you were committing that much money to the project. But, hopefully it will actually work. I think it is just a matter of the right hardware, ie, heavy duty enough to do the job without straining. And the right kind of software to interface the programmed motions to your servo setup. Good luck with your project.

i bought this controller due to it has software to do what i want it to do and i figure i will have from $2000 to $2500 in it but that is much less than the $6000 + they want for one and you still need to put a seating cockpit on top of their platform .

Look for a local makerspace perhaps one of them could help or you could pay for a few days and make it yourself.

well it looks like the rest of my ball screw tables will be to me on monday but i will need to stay after work if i want to mount them and make the steel pads to weld the radius rod mounts to and bolt to the actuator tables i also need to weld the adjustable feet to the base so it can be leveled and not scratch up the floors then it all comes down to getting those servo motors and drivers the disassembly paint or have powder coated
