    its a decent looking rig, but criticism from me is the monitor stand looks not so good as the screen is miles away and the pedal deck looks like it will have flex in it, it htink their price tag is a little optimistic personally

    Actually, that's a TV stand. By its nature it kind of makes sense to not have it right up in your face.

    They do have a 3-monitor stand, but I only found it in the Brazilian site, so I can't tell if it is already being offered abroad. As to the pedal deck, it is adjustable but pretty rigid. I own a similar rig from Extreme and I find it very sturdy.

    Hi, we are planning to start sales in Europe in the second half of next year. But in January we'll see how to ship these products from the United States to Europe. Soon we will have more information.

    @Kiko Tocci how much of force is the pedal deck designed to handle? It really looks a bit flimsy as @whip mentioned.

    Holds about 100 kg. Some customers who have pedals with more pressure they mount a steel plate to reinforce, but these cases are very rare.

    If you don't like fwd maybe they are boring for you to drive but as a competition, that's a different story.

    Thanks for your reply, really appreciated!

    About the guys talking about the rig quality without trying it I will say it looks good, I love their rigs appearance, even interesting than other models we usually see due their approach (most are copy and paste between brands). One rig like this will look good in a house with limited space or in a living room in my opinion, very clean and compact.

    People no offense but stop complaining this is a free prize that both racers and viewers can win, if you win it and then you don't like it you can definitely sell it and post your opinions then.
    So thank you @RaceDepartment and @extremesimracing

    For those asking about the quality... I own one of their cockpits (not this particular model), and I can say it is pretty sturdy. Some things of note: get the version without the monitor stand, it is really too far from the wheel. Also, it's important to say that the wheel stands, at least the models sold here in Brazil, are NOT built for DD wheels, they're geared towards Fanatec/Logitech/Thrustmaster.
