    Static can be a Bit*h of a thing to diagnose....try touching somewhere different before exiting the rig. Or try some Static guard on the seat. Is your household less humid or Dryer than normal ?

    I had a little bout of Static shutting down my Motion controllers. For a few days it seemed to be really bad, then sorta disappeared.....Im guessing it was the humidity in the house adding to the problem. I also discovered i Could touch my CF/Aluminum adjustable wheel deck and discharge myself.
