Can’t afford one of those fancy racing simulators, but still want to inject a little bit of realism into your racing sessions? You could always try to emulate what this person did with an instrument cluster from a 1992 BMW. He managed to hook it up to interact with his racing simulator, taking the incoming data from the computer, and reflecting the data on the instrument cluster, giving you that sense of realism of looking at a real tachometer, instead of the boring digital one on your computer. He’s apparently also working to fit more parts into this mod, taking it one step closing to becoming a full blown simulator, and we wish him all the best. Check out the video in the full post.
