guys, “2nd of august” means 2/8 or 2nd week of august?


#791

It means a date, not week number.


#792

thanks Mika, also because that means 1 week earlier than I was told from my reseller :slight_smile:
another thing, is it possible to get the premium style estop for Sport model or not yet? if not, will it be possible to purchase it in the future for that sc2 model? thankz


#793

It will be possible to buy in the future, but I’m not knowledgeable on why it is not in production for consumer sales yet.

Hey Mika
I need two extra motor side QR wedges. Can I order directly from you? or maybe can I get 3D model so I can print it. It’s just for wall muting extra steering wheels.


#796

Hello,

Yes, that is possible but you will need to rewire.

I am looking to offload mine but no takers. I ended up with a Martin Ascher USB button plate.

No more converting for me :slight_smile:

Hi Damian and everyone else!

Just a quick heads up since this is my first public forum post: my name is Joonas and I’ve been helping Mika out with SC2 firmware and now I try to fill in for Mika with questions where I can.

I need two extra motor side QR wedges. Can I order directly from you?

I asked our sales and the response was: Our motor side QR units are available through our distributors mentioned at https://simucu.be.

[…] can I get 3D model so I can print it. It’s just for wall muting extra steering wheels.

Currently we have no plans to offer this part or part of it for 3D printing or such wall mounting accessories but I’ll be sure to bring this wall mounting use case up for the part for future planning. No promises though on the outcome.

Hi all, just a short and simple question : I need to know if SC2 Sport motor is smaller (in lenght) than the small MiGe motor, if it weights less than that and if the two have the same front mounting holes pattern and measures. I am waiting for the 2nd batch delivery and in the meantime, to alleviate this sad non-simracing period, I am preparing my rig and triple monitor mount to be ready to wellcome the new motor; because of that, I would need to know the motor dimensions and also if I can still use the SimLab motor mounting bracket I was using before with a small MiGe. For the weight, I am asking because I was having some flexes with the OSW on my rig (SimLab GT1-Evo), and I am hoping the Sport will be lighter than the small MiGe for that reason.
Another thing, can I place the power supply in contact with alu profiles (I was thinking of securing it with classical cable ties around the profile) or could it cause some issues, like emi or what else?
Thanks!

Simplified cad drawings for all the Simucube models are found on the Support section of the www.simucu.be website.

Hi Mate,
The Sport is shorter than the small Mige, same diameter though. You can reuse your existing Mige-mount, will work fine.

Yes, you can cable-tie the psu to your rig, but why not print some nice mounting-brackets for it instead?

Cheers,
Beano


#801

that’s actually a nice idea :slight_smile:
good news for the mounting, thanks!


#802

Cheers Mate, it will look sweet :wink:


#803

My sc2 pro is ordered, and I would like to know if a remote switch would be possible to add ? (like on premium torque off switch but from my button box)
The power button at the back may be hard to reach on my rig.

I didn’t find information on ‘torque off’ and ‘sc accessory port’ pinouts. I do understand it is not as open as sc1 or argon was, but it will be a nice addition to the support section of your website.


#804

One reseller has them listed for 100EUR. A DIY solution doesn’t seem to be (easily) possible, see here.


#805

shouldn’t be possible to do something like this for the SC2 estop?

Hi. What happened to the FFB outpute curve / sensitivity filter? I think you guys call it “Non-Linear Force Saturation.” I know some games (maybe most) allow you to adjust this but this is also supposed to be a setting from the SC2 Pro and Ultimate models. I still have not seen anyone mention it nor seen it in any of the TrueDrive pics…

Also, is there a possibility of developing a setting that’s like the Torque Reduction Filter - maybe in combination with the FFB curve/sensitivity filter - but which only applies to SAT (self-aligning torque)? I think this may be one of the most important settings for people like myself who like very high forces but have a difficult and frustrating time using high forces because of too much unrealism and pain when using high forces with a DD wheel.


#808

We have developed a “first release” set of filters and features, and are right now fixing the issues that have been encountered in them. There will be a round of new filters once the summer holiday season is over and things have stabilized.

Without telemetry knowledge from each game, it is quite hard to get a sense of what is self-aligning torque. We are thinking of ways to improve in this regard.


#809

Yes, that’s what I was thinking, without accessing telemetry (like the Accuforce), it’s probably extremely difficult if not impossible to achieve a SAT filter. Hopefully there’s some way to achieve something similiar with tricks and such but I can understand if this isn’t possible without telemetry.
