    Nice! Id like to do something similar with my sprints, although I have them setup with fairly stuff bumpers so there may not be enough movement to use the damper properly? Could you take a few close up pics of how you have connected the damper to the pedal?

    If you check on last page I have the modding video linked, should be a few pics in there as well.

    Do you have experience with the Fanatec handbrake?

    edit: Nevermind. Just found a vid from you.

    @heppsan - How are you finding the DimSim F320? I'm back looking at options for GT style rims again..

    I'm liking it!
    Nice width and it's a bit thicker than many of my other wheels, the handles are of a rubbery foam but offer nice grip.

    Sounds good. - Does the rubber/foam have a bit of squish to it, or is it quite hard?

    It has a squish to it, but feels hard and firm.

    New wheel is ready to race. My version of a Lotus 107C/109 steering wheel. Based on a Momo Mod.11 in black suede, a saddler changed the color to red (Alcantara), because it's impossible to get a red suede Momo Mod.11 elsewhere. Carbon plate is done by myself, electronics are made with Arduino pro micro and Simhub. The 2 Led's are pieces of two 2.50€ chinese flashlights, right side is red for shifting and the left is blue for pit limiter.
    The hub with the magnetic paddels are made by Peter (PeterMakesThings on YT), thanks again Peter for your outstanding piece of 3d print! The Lotus badge on the center is custom made by BestStickers.net (great service!) and the button label are made by someone I found on ebay classified ads. Thats it. The wheel is 260mm in diameter, so perfect for any kind of open wheeler. Hardest thing was to get all the wires and arduino inside the hub, and made it look ok on the outside. It's perfectly ok for me, handles well and is a great steering wheel for the FR90 V8's or the 1993 F1 mod for AC. Pictures:

    Keep racing!

    Mostly DIY and second hand stuff, works very well. Only desire, better wheelbase.

    Nothing new to show, but a little WIP teaser...
    Very very basic ebay kit. Bad print quality, not compatible with Nextion display (I will fit one inside anyway...)
    Allready 100 problems fixed, and still another 100 to do. My first wheel with massiv LED's, Nextion display and a self printed single arm shifter.

    Still a long way to go...

    How are you going to do the grips?

    Both sides are 3d printed in two parts. I have self-adhesive upholstered fake Alcantara. The grip gets covered with this stuff, and after that the very thin layer of Alcantara is torn off. What you have now is a half of a grip with 3mm padding on it. This gets wraped in italian goad suede in black. Did this for my AMG GT3 wheel before, works and feels great!
