CONGRATULATIONS!

Before you start playing, please calibrate the position of the simulator.

It is recommended to do the calibration before every gameplay.

Holding "C" will calibrate ALL axes, Tapping "C" will only calibrate YAW axis.

AFTER YOU OR SOMEONE ELSE SIT IN THE SIMULATOR

Tap the “START” button and your simulator is ready to play.

WARNINGS

TO AVOID ANY DAMAGES TO THE SIMULATOR PLEASE START TO PLAY WITH LOWER DEGREE LIMITATIONS AND INCREASE THE DEGREE STEP BY STEP CAREFULLY!

We suggest to start at 12° limitation on each axes and 50% of power.

ALWAYS KEEP THE RIGHT BALANCE TO AVOID WHEEL SLIPPING. IT CAN DAMAGE THE SHELL.

After the player has sat in the simulator and the shell doesn't move by itself, but it's easy to move it by hand in any direction, the shell is balanced well. You can adjust the balance if it is necessary. The seat balance can be adjusted by sitting forward or backward. 

To keep the balance during the game, please don't make large movements with your body.

BEFORE YOU GET OUT OF THE SIMULATOR

Push “STOP” button or turn off the position tracker’s power button.
