the cooling fan inside is making one a hell of a racket, cant even hear my dirty rattley old 06 xbox over it lol
even the guy at fanatec said it will be the smaller version fan and that it has come apart

stoked that it looks like im able to buy one here, now the one sized hex key i need i dont have, off to get one in the morning

looking up now thats for sure Smile, now i need another sequential shifter for a handbrake Wink, but will drill a hole and put an extra plug for it on the side in the meantime

Grabbed a copy of Dirt 3 today (Big W - $62), the down side and the reason i chose this thread to post in.

No support for clutch pedal
No support for the H pattern, or the sequential shifters. I can only use the paddle shifters Sad

The force feedback seems a bit strange too. When I first started up the game, the GT2 made some VERY strange noises, may have been the rumble motors going off thier nut. I turned the SHo setting down to about 20 and it seemed a bit better, but still as you turn the wheel it makes very strange noises. I hope it is not doing any damage.

Thought I should add, these noises are while in the menus, they seem to go away once the race starts.

OK DID MY FIRST MOD,
got annoyed with the sound of the H- shifter, so it needed to be quietened

tools
small phillips screwdriver, and a file

unscrewed the shifter, popped the stick and white thingy right out and simply filed down the 2 bumps the little silver ball runs over, and reassemble,
now much better, seems alot nicer to move also, took me all of about 10min



now contemplating flogging the momo gearknob from my project car to replace the stick

Finally!

got my Shi# together and finished of the RU-GT2 cockpit

Naked (cockpit)


Fully dressed - H patten shifter


Ive created 2 shifter posts, the H patten sits low, very similar to a normal gear position in a centre console and the Sequential sits closer to the wheel.


Oh, dont forget the hanger for the Turtle Beach H/Set


Now all Ive got to do is turn it on.... happy racing

funny thing Mr T, it cost me a can of spray paint and a couple of bolts.

an old (roof rack) client, owed my a few favours, so they bent and supplied the steel for free!



didn't use all the bits,

I just made it to measure, re bent a few angles, a couple of bolts n screws before welding it.

I have a pdf of the plan, if anyone want it, just pm me

Well done RU, now we wait for the posts withTeeroy, blaming the unfair advantage of your new rig for you beating him on track.

@ stoner, Im going to have to give that shifter mod a go, that clicking given me the Shi#s too....

Noticed, you have move you clutch pedal (plate) to the left. Ive move the brake closer to the right. I found that I was foot lagg'n from the brake to the accelerator.

has anyone changed the the support bolt connecting the pedal at the back , higher or lower, I assume it will change the angle of the pedal, but not sure if it changes the feel under use?

yeah contemplating moving the plate, doesnt seem to bother me yet and i use big shoes lol sometimes i push both at the same time is annoying
im having problems with this setup, im slower sitting up rather than sitting on the floor lol bit of getting use to and may start looking at moving the T bar etc to get the feel back,
kinda wish i didnt play GT5 the other night since then ive been slower on forza also, and hope they have some decent FFB on FM4 too

RU-GT2 verII

need to go back to the body shop for a cut and tuck!, basically the wheel position was too low.

so I cut the diagonals above the support bar and placed a over-sleeve, re-braced it, and made it adjustable, thxs to a quick release bike axle.

Ive now got up to an extra 100mm height adjustment, but Ive set it to 50mm at this point
