Just curious if anyone has mounted a DD wheel base to an old Fanatec CSL Seat?

Been using the rig with a CSW for a couple of years, I'm happy with it but I'm growing interested in the zero deadzone responsiveness of a DD wheel. Thinking of eventually moving to one down the road but I'm not planning on also upgrading the seat for obvious budget reasons. Am concerned with the increased torque of a DD and the ability to properly connect it, does anyone have any experience trying to do this with this specific rig?

Thanks for any info.

From just looking at the seat & frame design, I would say it needs some reinforcement to improve strength at the mounting base-plate and of the wheel-stand up-rights (at a minimum). If you can do it yourself, it may be worth doing - otherwise, you may be better off going to a different frame that can handle the weight and torque without losing FFB energy to frame-flex.
