  • We now know the resistance of the potentiometers SHOULDN'T have mattered. They're used as voltage dividers, so even if the resistance is different, it should have worked fine. However, while testing, when using the stock pedal's pots, we'd either have 100% or 0 throttle and nothing in between - hence why we tried to use matching pots. As this is just a proof of concept, basically just to figure out if this is as cool as we imagined (and it is), we just needed the car to accelerate and brake in a controllable manner. The rest will be figured out for the actual final build. :D

    • Hey Linus you didn't calibrate the ESC. That might give you the full power of the pedals. Do it and then thank me or hire me.

    • Aaah, okay. I was sitting here saying to myself, "the resistance shouldn't matter!" Good to know the reason why you were trying to match resistance.

  • I guess i have to test this. Let see if it's possible to drive car at higher speed with FPV, at least i need more FOV to camera i think. I have a rc racing TRvision Channel and if anybody is interested for it, please leave a comment and subscribe to it.

  • I'm just starting to watch this and have to wonder how many existing solutions for RC aircraft controls and motion tracking goggles will be applied to the VR aspect of this. Polhemus has really cool magnetic motion tracking sensors that can be used to track just about every part of the human body as well as transponders and locomotion tracking equipment.

  • There was an easier way to make the 10K potentiometer in the steering wheel work as a 5K. From what I saw you used an extreme and the middle, just solder a 10K resistance in parallel to the potentiometer. That way it should vary from 0 to 5K, instead 0 to 10K And the modification would be minimal
