Hi All, my dash is working also!

I will take a look at all the available codes for the TM1638 and see if i can make some new effects.

@Vicpopo, tnxs, i will use the KM/H also.

@Ferslash, you need X-sim to get the data from a game...

Hi guys,
well done everybody. Tronic - inspiring like every time!

I want to build this too. But the boards of the link are not available atm... Someone a "cheap" alternative?

@ dearn what do you use? something you bought in the netherlands?

I like this thing really much - instead of the crazy price... [url]insidesimracing.tv/videos/view/868/0/Inside-Sim-Racing-Episodes[/url]

Hi Yoko,

Use the first link for Tm1638 display and when you are on dealextreme website search arduino nano v3 in the website and you will get it.
Total amount 6,99 + 12 = 19 USD!!
That's it ;)
Best Regards

Hi Yoko!

I have it also bought from DealExtreme. It took about 3 weeks before i got it. :)

I think any arduino will do the job, but i bought a nano, just like Thanos did.

Grtz,
Arno

Im thinking that I will desolder the board and arrange them in a way that allows me to put them where I want them. I have a botton box on one side and 3 monitors so I cant put them above the wheel, think I will put it to the left of the weel in an inclosure.
