WARNINGS

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

We suggest to start 12° limitations 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 and easy to move by hand in any direction, the shell is balanced well. You can adjust the balance if it is necessary. If the player sit forward or backward in the seat the balance can be adjusted. 

During the game please don't make big movement by your body to keep the balance.

BEFORE YOU GET OUT OF THE SIMULATOR

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