OK, Back in time on this  ;)

So in short :

The driving wheel & the gas/brake pedals are working 100% fine  8)

One more step : the hack of the buttons.... easy stuff (the hard work is far behind me now  :P:-*

Here's the boards from the Logitech Racing wheel :



See there three boards... this is where the buttons are connected  :arrow:



In the same manner than a usual Dreamcast pad by example, I'm scratching the contacts...



...in order to solder the wires...



I do that for all the buttons... even If I won't use all of them on the Daytona cab (this last has only 6 push buttons)... but It'll allow me the select the right ones, because they are all ready to be used  8)

The hack is complete :



Now, let's prepare the 6 buttons for the Sega racing cab #1 :

Ok, time to fix this 'Driving Wheel hack' inside the cab. It's also time for a good cleaning inside the cab :



I'm using an absolute *brand new* panel (thanks again JofJof  :-*)... and what a great pleasure when you can remove yourself the adhesive protection  ;D :





Let's fix the buttons panel :



Power on...





It's a dream come true.... Everything is perfect  :-* :-* :-* Let me prepare a video of this running, so you'll see by yourself  ;)

So stay tuned my friends  ::) :-*

*back on this*  ;)


...a mini road trip  ::) :arrow:

20th of March 2008 - 19h06 :



Let's measure it... as usual  ::) :



Daylight but rain   :ghost: ...



... then night  :P :



Back at home  :arrow: 21:16





Ok so why driving 2 hours/176km ? What is this ?

...


For this  :P  :arrow:



Remember, this project is about a TWIN cab, not a single ! I wanna play Out Run 2 in versus mode  :) !

I'm very happy with the first cab, and especially the quality of the display (Sony Trinitron TV in ... RGB mode of course), and I want for the other cab EXACTLY the same one  8) I've finally found one ... but of course I've to pick it up (no shipping)... so here's why this mini road trip  ;D (Please call this an 'ArcadeLifeStyle' story  ::) :P ;D)

Here's the details of that 'display device'  :)  :arrow:



The work on the 'empty' cab #2 can start  :-*  :arrow:

I would really be pleased to see how you plan to fix the monitor chassis, as i'm also in front of the same problem...
