I know this has probably been discussed in the past but I would like to put together 2 sprint car frames and set them up like the guys at the speedway do the simulators. Has anyone done this at home before? My plan is to use 2 computers with lcd screens mounted where the windscreen would be. I have access to a couple of bent frames and would really like to have them give feedback. When you go into the corner the frame tilts to the right, then when going down the straights it sits down on the left.

Am I making any sense here?

Hopefully someone can steer me in the right direction.

Thanks,
Camsbad

Get your wallet out if you looking for motion. Mine doesn't move but with 3 27" screen you get the feeling for a lot less money.

What operating system are you going to use so the sim runs with out crashing?
