He probably does a lot of stuff with sequential as I see no H-shifter either. To me, yes, it's "incomplete", lol, but that's the wonderfulness of our hobby. We all have different tastes and build our rigs accordingly. Me, I need the clutch and H-shifter because I love GT Legends and cars with manual transmissions.

A cracking setup like that and didn't go the whole shebang...

I must admit, Lower Level. I love the 80s and other classic cars in these games. Love the modern stuff as well but nothing beats throwing a Ford Escort about the place in these games.


I really love that seat of C3PO's.

My latest. Not much. Accuforce wheel is gone but back up and running!!

Well, after 3 weeks or so, a couple day job finally got done. 1 911 call, 2 hospital stays and a couple days working on it when I barely had strength to stand up but alas, it is done! Yup, converted my ECCI pedals to work with my Logitech G27 wheel.

First I had to set aside some space top work. Most of that wiring hadto be replaced with a different wiring harness and handy to have the laptop to follow instructions.



Basically, it's a simple project but I have no experience with this so easier said than done. I have to replace the blue Hall Sensor with the Potentiometers pictured.



I got the first one done and then ended up in hospital and of course while I was gone my family decided this corner was just a "bunch of junk" and piled it all on one end of the bench. OUCH!!



And so over the last few days as I get my strength back I started finishing things. Not after rewiring this connector will plug directly in place of the Logitech pedal connector.



Like this:



The we run the ground wire and go into calibration and calibrate everything up.



And it is done.



Then fire up GT Legends, get out the TR4 and onto Goodwood and all is well!! YAY!!



Now, I need to get up to finishing the motion rig.

Looks great! I bet getting in there for an intense racing is pretty good for you, too!

Yeah. Looking forward to it. I've spend most of the last 3 weeks in hospital but hope to get strong enough soon to do a few laps of GT Legends!.

Mine is a driver tower in the middle of a girl room!







P.s.: the 'mouchoirs' on the table, those are only for my never ending flu. I'm beyond that phase.

P.p.s.: Uh, in case you ask, the orange cd cover standing there it's this. Pretty interesting for a 'scientist of international politics'.

P.p.p.s.: Yes, I kept the F1 paddles mounted -- it's because of the 'JMB-Michelotto Project' you know...

It would be great to be able to play on something like these rigs but I have a to use my old PC for everything so it's just not feasible for me, I'll continue to hook up the G29 when I wanna drive and pull it off when I gotta do something else, but...

You guys are so talented, I just love looking at what you've been up to

it gives me ideas for if I win the lottery... if I did the lottery...lol
