After moving to antother city and my exams there's now time again for hackin'!

So expect frequent updates from now on.

I've bought a real dashboard from a VW Polo 6R and I want to build something like a desk out of it. So you can play great racing games and work on it.

I'm really excited about the next months and hope to get everything working :D

After a long and painful standstill I found a new sponsor. He`s going to produce an adapter so I can connect my Truck Steering Wheel to my USB Racing Wheel. Once this is complete my sim has the essential needs for driving. Next would be my gear-shifter. I Expect to start updating my logs in one month from now.

Game on bro! Love to follow your progress. I`m still struggeling with my Steering Wheel. Are you going to use a real VW Polo Wheel or the G27?

I'm going to use the G27 wheel.
So you're trying the real Polo steering wheel?
