    Unnecessarily low to the ground and posts before the pedals seem like it would be difficult to climb into for us old folks. Can you add a video showing how you get in/out?

    I have a Hyper Stimulator (http://www.hyperstimulator.com/2013web/index.php/simulators/extreme-racer) which is similarly low to the ground. I've now tried a lot of rigs and for me it is by far the best of any consumer rig in terms of seating position and feeling like an actual racing cockpit.

    But just like an actual open wheeler it's hard to get in and out, and really frustrating when you get into the cocoon then realise you left something outside; having to then worm your way out again.

    At least with this Trak Racer you are not wedged in an enclosed cockpit and it looks like you can roll in and out of it which would be easier.

    It doesn't look too low to me, the seat is raised off the floor with plenty of room to to swing your legs in and out.

    I will be doing a full on review, I will add it to that. This should be out sometime in August! I personally don't find it to difficult to get in and out of.

    When you get into a single seater or kart you stand in the seat.
    Quite easy then, even for an old codger like me.

    Most of the F1 rig's I looked at seemed flimsy and would not take the forces from a decent set of pedal's or DD wheel..I just built my own in 45-90 profile.
