    This is one great and by far the best racing seat out there, especially if you're a F-I or Indy Car fan. The price was a little high for a game racing seat, but I must say I don't regret it. I asked a lot of questions vi this website before I decided to purchase and I had all many questions answered very quickly. Once ordered I received the seat two days sooner than promised and it wasn't that hard to put together. Some written instructions, as well as the pictures, would have been nice, but as long as you take your time and not rush it, it is pretty simple to put together. It took me about an hour and a half to get it all set up. The seat is very comfortable and since I'm getting to old to race the shifter cart, this Red Bull Racing Seat comes pretty close to satisfying my need for racing.

    I bought this a couple of weeks ago. I'm building a simulator for a friend who races, and he wanted a realistic seating position for a Formula 3 car, without the expense and hassle of an actual carbon fibre monocoque. This fit the bill perfectly.
    It arrived quickly, but initially came with the old pedal plate. A quick email, and the newer, stiffer plate was mailed out at no cost and arrived very quickly.

    The whole thing bolts together quite easily. Two people would make it easier but I did it on my own in less than thirty minutes. And it's rigid and doesn't squeak.

    I've got it up and running now with an Oculus Rift and Assetto Corsa, along with Fanatec Clubsport wheel and pedals, and frankly it's amazing. Several people at work have tried it, ranging from 5'1" women to 6'7" guys, and everyone fits. The tall guy finds the headrest presses into his back, but once he's driving he doesn't notice.

    Getting in and out is impossible to do elegantly - one has to stand over the seat, lower ones buttocks into it, and then wriggle ones legs down towards the pedals. Getting out is perhaps harder still, but I'm sure we'll all get better with practice. But I'm going to find a way to mount a sequential shifter on the right hand side, and that's going to make it much harder still.

    Things I'm not so keen on:
    The pedal plate is just a bit too flexible for my liking. If it was me, I'd have made the mounting bolts a little further apart to increase the rigidity, or added a support at the back somehow. The newer design of pedal plate is a big help, but it's still not perfect.
    The steering wheel mount isn't quite straight, but I've twisted it a little bit so the steering column is pretty much on the centerline.
    The screws that hold the seat back into place press against the inside of the padding and push it inwards. But you only notice that during assembly.

    The adjustment is great. Steering wheel reach and height are catered for, although the height adjustment can leave it a bit unsupported, so I wouldn't entirely recommend this to big or tall guys. The pedal adjustment is great though, for angle and distance, and once you've got the angle set it's easy to adjust the pedals for smaller or bigger people.

    It really needs rubber feet to stop it moving around, and perhaps a little more weight in the nose, as it has a tendency to turn slightly when getting in and out, but it's not a big problem.

    For cable management, I've run the wires from the steering base down the support column, and then under the pedals, so they don't catch on feels during entry and egress. A slightly more elegant solution, with tabs for cable ties perhaps, would be a small improvement, or a hope specifically for cables to be run down.

    But overall I like it a lot. I'd buy one for myself (I have a Playseat Challenge) if I had a bit more disposable income, and I think my friend will LOVE it when I install it in his house.

    Well done Playseat, and thanks for the great customer support.

    Highly recommended, with only very minor caveats.

    I feel like a Formula 1 driver! This seat is amazing. It has everything: looks great, puts you in that real F1 driving position, is comfy (also for hour long races), wheel and pedals are easy to install and sit very sturdy on the frame. I'm using it for almost two weeks now and haven't had a boring moment yet. I am very happy with this new Red Bull Racing chair!!

    I was impressed how fast it was delivered, days earlier the predicted time. The quality of the seat is amazing and the RedBull finish gives a touch of realism. I just used it once and still have to make some adjustments to find the optimal wheel and pedal positions.

    I absolutely love this cockpit. I have friends asking to come over so they can play with it. Even my NASCAR friends. Only problem for me is the curvature of the seatback. It is far too rounded for me as I like to sit with proper posture. I put and a thin pillow behind my back to straighten out my back and I am good to play for hours at a time. It is super sturdy and has no rattle or shaking when playing with aggressive force feedback.

    Rarely do I buy something online that is nicer than I expected, but this seat most certainly is NICE. All metal construction...extremely sturdy. Could not be happier. 2 day shipping to Texas. Trust me when I say that you can't go wrong with this seat.

    Thanks y'all.

    The seat was delivered in a very good package. It came with instructions that were easy to understand and the seat was assembled without much hassle. The package also came with some extra screws and nuts, which is always useful.

    The build-quality is great and its a fun seat to use (and even to lounge in at times ;-) )

    After staring at this chair for several months intimidated by the price I finally decided to get it after my cheap homemade rig finally broke. I was ready to face disappointment, but I never encountered any of it. The kit fit together perfectly and took me less than 40 minutes from unboxing to racing. The center pillar is perfect for masking wires coming to and from my wheelbase that I used to stumble over in my old rig. Overall my only regret with this is that I didn't get the monitor stand with it.

    I've recently graduated from karts to cars (F4 specifically) and needed something much better positioned. This setup is perfect. You can see the European quality immediately upon unpacking, and all the way thru assembly. I am 100% satisfied with this purchase and would recommend the setup to anyone looking for a great Sim seat!

    My wife and I searched for 2 days online for a racing simulator seat until we spotted this one. While it was out of our initial budget, it was well worth the additional cost. Very comfortable, looks amazing, and easy to adjust. The build quality is top notch and this will last for quite some time. It was very basic to put together and light enough to move around when necessary. The driving position is perfect for our entertainment room. I highly recommend anyone that is looking for racing seat to purchase this one. I just wish that I could have purchased a version with the Petronas/Mercedes F1 team colors and logo.

    been looking for many years about buying the f1 seat since launch and now I have one. they sent me the old/wrong design foot plate emailed and sent be with two weeks. so please check carefully as old plate can damage/ chip as it catches if pulled towards the driver.
    a very good starting rig towards direct drive wheels.

    top after sales care thats why I will be back again soon A**

    please playseat make a option for 4 actuators instead of the budget 2 system which won't sell people would easily upgrade even if it cost twice as much.
