Because i lost overview of all my post in the "Show your rig" topic and a lot of pictures where not working anymore, it's time for my own topic. HoiHman Race Rig & Rims Showcase The purpose of this topic is: - Show case of my rig - Show case of steeringwheel collection - Future updates My rig is not permanent, but temporary. The rig is in my office and is stored during the day. This is my office "race mode" (at night and in weekends) This is my office during the day. Thanks to years of optimization, setting up the rig is now a piece of cake. My 80/20 rig is made of 3 sections: - The pedal section (is bolted down in the ground under my desk) - Seat section (NLMv3 motion rig + GS-4 seat+HE-shifter+Handbrake) - Steering wheel section (AccuForce + Dashboard + Windsim) To set up the rig i have to - Place the seat and steering wheel section - Thighten 4 handscrews - connect 2 power connectors - connect 3 USB connectors - connect 2 multi connnectors This takes 3-4 minutes on average The seat section is on a cart during the day The steering wheel section is in the cupboard behind my rig during the day, this is also the place where all (13) rims are hanging. PC Hardware MOtherboard : Asus Maximus Hero 9 CPU: I7-7700K @4500mhz GPU: Asus ROG 1080Ti OC Strix MEM: 16GB HD: 2x samsum 850SSD Sound: Onboard + Logitech Z5500 Simvibe: Creative X-fi en Asus Xonar DGX Display -Philips 40" 4k monitor -55" Samsung TV ( on a tv lift behind the desk ) -Oculus Rift Race Sim Hardware -AccuForce -Heusinkveld Pro Pedals -Curved carbon fiber dashboard -Curved carbon fiber center console -HE sequential shifter -Fanatec Handbrake Tactile feedback and motion -Simvibe chassis -4x Simvibe extension -NLMv3 motion seatmover -GS-4 seat -Windsimulator Despite all the hardware that has been added over the years, including motion, 8 buttkickers, buttonboxes etc etc, setting up my rig takes just as long as when I raced in my office chair 8) Simvibe From the moment that I was a Beta tester of Simvibe, I knew that this is something very special. You can compare it with the FFB of a steering wheel. Actually essential for every rig. I am a true enthusiast and have the maximum number of simvibe channels - 4 buttkicker mini LFE's in chassismode (small bumps, rpm, road-feel) - 1 buttkicker mini LFE at the HE-shifter ( rpm, gearshift effect) - 2 buttkickers mini LFE on the bakc of the GS-4 (rpm, gearshift effect) - 1 buttkicker Advance at the pedals (big bumps, impacts) - 1 buttkicker LFE under the seat (big bumps, impacts) The pedals section with left and right the "chassis buttkickers" and in the middle the larger BK Advance The large LFE under GS-4 seat and the NLMv3 Left and right : the "chassis buttkickers" . In the middle : 2 buttkickers for rpm (cooled by a fan) Below: 12v powersupply and arduino housing for the WindSimulator. Due to the large number of buttkickers, the "tuning" of this is quite a lot of work, but once you've done it, it's great fun The small buttkickers do road noise and small bumps much better than a big buttkicker. A bigger buttkicker you just want again for impacts and curbs. Especially the LFE under the chair has a lot of impact. [The GS-4 seat[/b] Top left and bottom right of the picture the 2 connection points with which the seat section is attached to the desk and the pedal section. Due Due to the construction there is no to negligible flex The GS-4 is perhaps the best purchase I have made in the simrace field. The GS-4 has 4 panels that simulate the G-forces in the corners. A motion simulator only simulates the G-forces at the start of the corner, the GS-4 will do its job throughout the corner. Long turners are a pleasure every time . The GS-4 has no damping on the panels. For some extra comfort I made 10mm hardfoam on the panels. On the sides I have made a raised edge on the panels myself. This ensures that the "G-forces" come more from the side instead of the back and that the chair pushes better into your side. Let's call it a GS-4,5. Beginning this year, all servos have been upgraded to "metal gears" for extra reliability. The GS-4 in combination with the NLMv3 is a golden combination, but I always use my 4-point belt. If you are firmly secured in the seat, the effect of the G-panels, motion and simvibe can be felt much better Next Level Motion V3 Motion on a non-permanent rig seems impossible. In 2015 I briefly had a SimXperience motion kit. This was broken due to incorrect mounting angles because the footprint had to remain small. I had given up my dream of motionrig until the NLMv3 came out. This compact unit fits right under the seat and is super quiet. It may not be at the level of SimXperience motion simulators, but you can use this unit at night without everyone waking up. From my own experience I know that this is not the case with SimXperience seatmovers. Below a video of the NLMv3 and the moving panels of the GS-4 in combination with SimWind. SimWind I only race in VR. It gets pretty hot with VR glasses on your head. The ideal solution is a Wind Simulator. Speed-dependent fans controlled by sim tools. At maximum speed the Seaflows Bilge Blowers are quite powerful and also make a lot of noise. Speed-based sim wind gives a huge sense of speed, acceleration and really creates an extra dimension in VR. I usually put the fans on 80-85% during the day and 60% during the night. A lap F1 with the fans at 100% speed remains great. I usually use about 50% for tin tops Because the seat moves I get automatically in the corners on one side more wind as the other side so the curve effect is amplified. The fan's can be switched on and off via the toggle switches on the dashboard WindSim in Assetto Corsa Center console / Dashboard / HE-shifter I have made both the dashboard and the center console myself and even in VR, every button is easy to find because of the curved shape. On the left a mobile cabinet with a pair of amplifiers for simvibe and at the same time a nice place for the mouse. HE-shifter en Fanatec handbrake right next to the wheel and underneath a compact center console Left below the steering wheel 1 of 2 brackets with which the steeringwheel section is firmly clamped on the desk. I am currently experimenting with special support that my new 40 "4k monitor places directly on top of my AccuForce, for that single racing game that still does not have VR support. Sound insulation To race at night with buttkickers, motion and wind simulator, I made 2 panels that are insulated at the back. These panels are placed in front of the door and these keep all the noises in the nightly hours. At first they were simply "brown" from MDF. I sprayed them white and made a number of trackmaps on them. During the day the panels are in the cupboard, together with the rim collection and the AccuForce. On this photo you can also see how little space there is directly behind my rig. The above movies and a lot of other uploads can also be found at my youtube channel: YouTube: HoiHman?
