Hello, I have a sc2 sport, P1-X rig and three wheels and I’m looking to get an extension (60 or 100mm) to allow me to get my screen to sit in front of the motor nicely. Is there a solution to use the simucube QR system with a wheel side extension?
I have only seen it work where the wheel side QR is connected to the extension tube and joined to the motor side QC. Then a Q1R quick release is used between extension and wheel. I would prefer not to go down this route of buying 3 new types of QR. I will try and find a simucube QR based solution if possible?
Yes that would be my back up option, to do it per wheel but would prefer not to if possible. Seems strange there isn’t an option to extend the motor shaft officially. I only ever see wheel side adapters.
The industrial servo motors are not designed to take loads from the direction that gets applied from the end of long extension. Thats why endorsing one ourselves would put us into difficult position IF motor bearings started to fail.
We asked our resellers on how long extensions people usually use, and whether an extended solution would be good with standard SQR parts, but nobody answered so we think it is just not commercially viable to offer one.
I have 100mm extension from hybrid racing simulations which has 70mm bolt pattern and replaces the standard clamp on the servo shaft. I then have one of Martin Ascher adapters to still use the simucube quick release.
Wheel extensions mounts are standardized by automotive industry. You can find hundreds of them on amazon and ebay, they all fit 70mm pattern, and guess 50mm as well.
I believe only HRS designs its own, but they have custom designs for everything.
