DIY 2DOF + ZTLS (Zappadoc Traction Loss System) simulator in action powered by MotionMax Manager using Automobilista 2 with McLaren GT3/Nordschleife combo. A great combo since the last update of AMS2.
Software and hardware requirements, parts list, mounting instructions,… Everything you need to build your own 2DOF+traction Loss motion simulator is now available at EKSIMRacing.
I’m happy to share with you this pure DIY project suitable for casual to PRO sim racer under CC-BY-NC-SA license (personal use only – commercial forbidden).

you get bored with your (too good) HE PRO or Sim3Pedal !
need to feel the good old days…
or simply pacing like a caged lion (maybe sick of working from home! )?
okay, don’t worry, here’s some cool stuff for you!
go to your kitchen (i.e. garage)
and prepare the diner (i.e. make a hardcore pedals set mod).
first, rummage through getting some broken, not functioning, unreliable, soft like “caramel custard” (flanby) parts from your old G25/27, T3PA Pro, CSP V1/V2, CSL Elite,…
then do your magical mix!
adding some screws, nuts, washers, a bit of elbow grease as usual in DIY project!, also a bit of 3D printing and after some hard work, feel happy like a teen getting his first date and get a pretty decent pedals set:
okay now the big challenge!
try to get a T.RJ12 USB adapter….
damn’! out of stock worldwide…
anyway, if you can’t find it use the big USB adapter provided with your T3PA Pro:
(no error here, the dust on it is also part of the adapter! keep it to increase reliability)
Many people contact me since 2019 to get more info on my DIY concept of motion simulator 2DOF+ZTLS (Zappadoc Traction Loss System) powered by MotionMax Manager software, A PRO grade car racing simulator at affordable price and suitable from casual to PRO driver. Thank you all for your interest and you patience.
Good news! the time to disclose this exiting project in details is arrived.

NEW Version 15 of the Z-Ring is available for download today!
Z-Ring v15 is available for download
The difference between versions 14 and 15 of the Z-Ring is a short heel and a recess bottom to make room for a lock nut (see installation for more information). This allows a complete stability of the QR even in the event of repeated big vibrations using your Fanatec Podium DD1 or DD2.

La v15 du Z-Ring est dispo au téléchargement
La différence entre les versions 14 et 15 du Z-Ring est un talon court et un fond évidé pour faire de la place pour un contre-écrou (voir l’installation pour plus d’informations). Cela permet une stabilité totale du QR de votre Fanatec Podium DD1 ou DD2 même en cas de grosses vibrations répétées.
