Racing seat and wheel recommendations...

    Hi guys,

    I am looking at creating myself a racing setup again, I previously had a G27 and Wheel Stand Pro but sold it due to space restraints. I have recently moved house and now have the ability to have another setup!

    I was looking at buying another G27 as I'm yet to see anything that compares for the price (unless you guys can tell me different?)

    In terms of racing seat I was looking at the playseat Alcantara?

    Can anyone recommend anything else or point me in the direction of the best place to buy one? Ideally I would like a seat that is easy to adjust so that when I have other people round to use it they can adjust it to suit their height etc without any hassle.

    thanks in advance for any help/advice you can offer.

  2. The problem i have my playset is adding equipment to it like when you add some heavy wheels to it like Fanatec Csw it gets very unstable almost wobbling and i´m planing Fanatec Css shifter when released so i might need update to a moore stable seat.Just my thoughts.
    Have a good one and keep looking around
     
  3. Hi, I'm looking into the same as well at the moment:
    my preference for a seat is a gtomega cockpit (look at first advice from Jari)
    the wheel I haven't sorted that out at all yet:
    my wet dream for the moment would be the csw with the csp's v2
    but I'm a bit afraid of having reliability issues with fanatec products although I'm really curious of trying out a fanatec wheel...

    If you buy the CSW + CSP V2, i'll come over to try it out:) and that's probably visa versa:D

  5. I didn't say I would buy it Boby,
    it's the setup I prefer at the moment
    maybe there is something better in a year when I finally go over to the purchase
    but you are certainly welcome mate! :)

  6. I personall have an rSeat EVO V3, which is a great seat :). It has no centre post, instead it has a unique side arm. It might look a little unstable, but I promise you it isn't. It also has great flexibility in adjustments and is pre-drilled for Logitech, Fanatec and Thrustmaster, so it is good if you would like to consider an upgrade in the future. I definitely recommend this :)
