Missing parts::

  • Optional screen mount incomplete, emails to Fasetech ignored until I posted on the forum, missing parts then sent out quickly

Assembly:

  • This order included the optional Sparco seat BUT NONE OF THE MOUNT HOLES on the seat slider fit that seat, in the end I pulled out a file…
  • Assembly is very simple

Software

Uses simtools which is fucking awful

Supplied axis mapping:

  • Supplied platform profile was wrong (Axis mapping) as Sway was mapped front to back, not sideways
