2 DOF With Traction Loss D.P.S. Simulator Concept By Zappadoc

Hi,

The Double Pivot Structure simulator is the most easy way to build a 2 DOF simulator with a traction loss layer. This kind of simulator are compatible with MotionMax 2 DOF.

For your personal DIY motion project feel free to use, improve, share, build this simulator and create a showcase video on your YT channel to show your creation.

IMPORTANT:  The top first pivot (for TL Layer) must turn at 360° *FLAT* like a boat seat swivel base for example.

Podium DD1 And DD2 QR Issue The Z-Ring Solution

Z-Ring version 14
2019 On an original idea by Zappadoc – EKSIMRacing.com

The Z-Ring increases the stability of you Fanatec rim loaded onto the Fanatec Podium DD1/DD2 QR system WITHOUT THE NEED TO USE THE LOCKING SCREW which is much more convenient when you have more than one wheel and want to change it quickly and that’s also the big interest of a QR system. Your rim feel more sturdy to get a better ffb feedback.

Changelog:

v14a 08/26/2019: first release to general public

v14b 08/30/2019: a little bit smaller channel for the internal QR guide bracket

v14b 10/22/2019: 2 versions of the Z-Ring 3D stl available, standard and 1mm deeper

 

INSTALLATION:

(the operation is totally safe and reversible)

Changing_QR_DD2-Manual-EN PDF Page 16

– follow the Podium manual (page 16) to remove the QR System


– unload the metal locking ring and the pressure ring (put the pressure ring in safe place we no longer using it)


– to be able to remove easily big black rubber (put the black rubber in safe place we no longer using it), the big rubber is the main cause of the flex of your rim.

 

– insert the Z-Ring (see the image)
– load the locking ring IN REVERSE
– follow again the Podium manual to put back the QR system
– Tighten the locking ring over the Z-Ring

once installed and when changing the rim on the Podium base you have nothing to do other than remove the current rim and put the new rim.

It is therefore more stable (no lateral flex anymore) but also faster when changing rim.

That’s it!

Cheers,
z

 

Z-Ring Podium QR Mod Review By Sim Racing Garage:

Published on Sep 5, 2019


Attention, the big locking ring in video is not reversed be sure to load it on the QR shaft in reverse
(see the installation above)

 

 

 

 

We still hope Fanatec is going to create a new shaft for the Podium like the one below:
