    I would love some of this kit on my desk/rig. The Steering robots would make great FFB wheels. The Gearchange kit could be used for an FFB Shifter. Notice the G25 at 7 minutes :)

    I am so confused by these designs. For testing a finished/unmodified car they are fine but they could do everything so much easier by intercepting things directly. Most gas pedals are drive by wire so just... wire that in. And you could electrically pump brakes with a literal pump. Steering could be done under the column with a gear system.

    In most modern vehicles, you can't just wire stuff in. It's a hell of a job to even replace small control units inside a modern car, because you have to fake their existence to other / higher-level control units.
    And the placement of stuff somewhere else than the driver seat is very hard, because of the tight packaging in the cars.

    Hey everyone,
    i will start participating in a small race-team the coming season.
    We race a close-to-series Ford Focus ST in the VLN races at the Nürburgring (in the VT2-class).
    [​IMG]
    After each VLN race, there is a report and some nice photos on our facebook site ( https://www.facebook.com/TICRacingTeam ). Last season, the reports were only in german, but i will try and persuade the guy in charge to write in english the coming season. Anyway, there are still some nice photos and videos to be seen ;)
    So if you guys want to support a small racingteam and are interested also in the lower-class cars at the VLN, like our facebook page and look forward to the coming season, which kicks off at the 29th of March.
