MotionMax Manager 2DOF to 6DOF Car Racing Motion Simulator

MotionMax SCN Edition – 6DOF Simulator – Track Imola (90s) Car Ferrari F1 (click image to zoom)

I started the MotionMax Manager project in 2015 and include the full support of 6DOF motion simulator platform (and its 2/3/4/5DOF declination) in 2018, From PRO to casual with a full 1:1 level motion driving simulator to a simple cockpit or VR rig the 6DOF (or 2/3/4/5DOF version) of MotionMax Manager is easy and powerful and supports a maximum of games and simulations.

MotionMax Manager is definitively a PRO Racing driving simulator software even if it can be use for flying-sim. The internal vehicle physics interpreter (V.P.I.) provides an ultra-realistic motion result in all car categories (Formula 1 and other open wheel categories/Endurance/Proto/GT/Rally/Kart).

 

MotionMax Manager FREX Edition 6DOF and 2DOF is available for purchase to general public from FREX Japan.

It is included with simulators manufactured by private motorsports companies, OEM hardware motion simulator companies and actuator manufacturers who are in partnership with us.

MotionMax Manager SCN Edition is also available with a full support of Dyadic SCN actuators. contact us if you’re interested by this software edition.

MotionMax Quick tutorial: Tweak The Traction Loss Settings to match your car’s behavior

MotionMax Quick tutorial: Tweak The Traction Loss Settings to match your car’s behavior

MotionMax Manager (MMX) do all the hard stuff for you to deliver a smooth, accurate and fast motion behaviors to your simulator but as for any race car you need to tweak settings and create your setup to match the combo track/car you drive.

This quick tutorial is focused on TL (traction loss) settings.

Please refer to the MotionMax Dashboard Information to learn how to create and save a new setup.

Getting Started With MMX 6DOF/2DOF:

http://www.eksimracing.com/motionmax-frex-edition/

 

Tweak The Traction Loss settings:

Set the TL with a maximum amplitude by setup the minimum speed at 5 (m/s) and the Sensitivity at 80%.

Start to spin on your race track (curvy track obviously for testing TL) with your favorite car,

Be sure the amplitude limiter is at it MAX value

And adjust the amount of Yaw Dynamics (ratio of TL acceleration/amplitude)  as you make the laps,

Then decrease the Sensitivity until this matches the behavior of your car (value should be between 24 to 54%), as soon as you feel perfectly the oversteer/understeer recovery you’re almost done,

Then go back on minimum speed setting and increase the value a little until the TL is hard to trigger,

Finally decrease this speed again to get the full TL effect back.

That’s it!

Congrats your combo track/car is now perfectly setup! do not forget to save your setup.

 

FREX 2DOF+TL Simulator And Yaw Dynamics (TL):

Yaw Dynamics (TL) Invert setting must be unchecked (click the image below to zoom).

 

Racing Driving Course:

Compared to games it’s hard to lose the traction with a regular production car, I suggest to do a racing driving course to get the essential of the TL this will help you a lot for setting up correctly your simulator with a real behavior and not making it a pinball machine…
