[Video] New video with GTR Evo and Eyefinity

Here’s another video, this time of my friend Mark taking his first ride in the Evo3 a few weeks ago. He never gave PC race simulations a try before and was a little bit doubtful about it, but after a few minutes he was absolutely thrilled 😉 !

Track (as usual): Nurburgring Nordschleife
Car / Series: WTCC BMW E90 first, then Caterham
Screen-Setup: Eyefinity @ 5760×1080

EVO3 construction report – part 4

In this last part of the construction report you can see the EVO3 in its final position (lucky me, that it doesn’t take too much space in this room *fg*), a few pictures of my F1 wheel (Momo 27c) with the same quick release mechanism like the Rally wheel (OMP 330mm) and you will see the modified dampening concept. I mounted the actuator arms from the outer position into the simulators chassis. Now the whole sim is a bit shorter and the dampening bar isn’t visible any longer.

In part 3 of the „construction report“ you will mostly see the additional cage on the front where one of the computers is placed, the cover and front panel of the dashboard with all buttons, switches and the SLI Pro as well as the roof and the final back resp. housing of the subwoofer.

Let’s go on with part 2/4.

You will mostly see the construction of the dashboard and the side-arms of the Eyefinity-Screens (at first I began with 28″ TFTs, but then I switched to 37″ LCD screens).

Here we go – many users, visitors and racers asked me during the building process of my new Motion Simulator EVO3 for pictures, photographs, sketches, measurements and things like that and I asked all of you to be patient.

I took many pictures while building and constructing the new sim – only with my iPhone, so please don’t expect high-quality magazine-style pictures 😉 ! I won’t comment each photo, because I think they’re all self-explaining. I will publish 4 posts with the pictures.

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

EVO3 – work in progress…

Due to the founding of our new photography and graphics design company, the project EVO3 takes much more time than expected… Originally I planned to have the new motion sim finished when the 10.000th visitor comes to sim-parts.com – but now there have come nearly 13.000 visitors (unbelievable !!!) to my site, but the sim isn’t finished yet.

I’m getting so many emails and PNs and phone calls from sim maniacs all over the world who want to know what’s going on now, that I decided to post a so-called intermediate result 😉 !
