DTRSC simulators

Post by camsbad » Fri Oct 02, 2015 1:39 pm

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
If at first you don't succeed, then maybe skydiving isn't for you!

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?

This is the place where brilliant minds assemble to willfully pool ignorance with questionable logic in order to reach absurd conclusions.


The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it.
