    Racing seat advice

    Hey,

    I currently have the Logitech Driving Force Pro Wheel but my seat set-up at the moment is rather well not suitable for long races. Is there any good racing seat that can be compacted so it can fit behind a sofa? I currently use a shelf that holds the SKY box to mount the steering wheel to and I sit on a fold up chair and have the pedals right in front of me. Also not wanting to go too far into the price range however if it can be made to fit behind a sofa I will pay anything!

    Thanks! :D

    That looks great. I have been looking at stuff like these to build a stand for my 3 year old Son. Will have to modify the base to raise the pedals so he can start learning to use throttle n brake.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the links. At the moment I'll probably build one to keep me occupied :p. I have the money though now to get the Gameracer Pro seat but I'll have to get a relative to bring it to me as they won't deliver to where I live.
