You hook audio cables (red and white) from the PS3 to the amp. Then 12awg cable from the amp to the Bass Shaker. Mount it to the metal stands of the chair, I just drilled some holes and used nuts and bolts.

Basically, it turns the bass of the game into vibrations in the chair. It vibrates when you rev, hit something, run over the rumble strips, even when a car is just next to you.

Version 2.02 is up and there are 2 great changes, wheels for Standard Cars, and Toyota 86 GT's for everyone!!! I had to take some time out of Forza to tryout the new 86, and I must say it's pretty sweet. There is also 4 new cars to download if you so desire (one is a '11 MINI Cooper s)

2.02 sounds are drastically different too, now you can hear exactly what the throttle is doing and you can also tell when your in a slipstream because the wind noise wanes!

Also, if you complete any of the seasonals you are awarded with a car certificate!

Great update!

They also updated where you can tell home many races you completed in each event. Also made navigation a little bit easier.

Some of the certificates they gave in the update are kinda of a waste but I will use them because I have some cars that I bought used that need a little bit of help.

Well, I didn't back anything up and I can't migrate saves from on PS3 HD to the other without a back up or the the original PS3 working. This sucks! I've got to start all over again. I lost all cars, including the free promotional X2010. That's just for this game.

I have top start all my games over again. With a baby now, I'll never get back to where I was.

FYI, BACK UP YOUR STUFF. JUST DO IT!
