    I drive in the Pacific F2000 series in California . The last few years have had no measurable amounts of rain. 2016 is an El Niño year and the dry race days will be limited. This awesome piece or equipment ( along with iRacing) will allow me to get the seat time I must have in order to stay competitive. I took the measurements out of my car and duplicated them for the sim .. I added an expired harness and it feels like I'm at Laguna Seca

    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.

    First off i was really surprised how fast it was shipped and delivered less than 72 hours and would have been quicker if it wasn't held up in France due to an issue with FedEx. Seat came securely packaged in 2 boxes with all the hardware, tools and installation instructions. It was easy to put together about 35 minutes by myself. This seat is made of high quality material really solid with multiple adjustments for just about anyone and i was happy that they sent extra screw to hard mount my steering and pedals. My one issues is comfort when i'm playing for an extended period the backrest is a bit too straight but I know complain because the design is replicating what the seating position is like in an F1 machine. I'll be spending most of my time in this seat even when i'm playing non driving games.

    If you like formula racing, you must buy it and for any other type of race car take a look in the store, there is a model for you.

    The quality is there, it's done to last.
    I don't regret my buy.

    After an age considering this chair I finally took the plunge and regret not buying it sooner. Games are so much more involving and I intend to buy the motion kit very soon! If you're sat on the fence, or even considering a competitor's product, get this bought!

    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.

    We bought this seat as a Christmas present for my son (and me!). The quality of the product is better than anything we have purchased in a long time. The frame is made of quality metal construction, Even the seat back is made of pressed steel making it extremely sturdy.

    All the parts appear to be a powder coated finish, giving them a uniform quality paint finish which should be extremely durable. The seat padding is of equal quality finish and fit. The seat took me approximately 20 minutes to assemble. All the screws go into captive nuts so there are no fiddly spanners needed. Just 3 types of Hex key are needed to assemble the complete seat (all supplied). There were additional screws provided which fitted the TX300 Thrustmaster steering wheel and pedals which we purchased separately to use with the Playseat.

    Once assembled, adjusting it to suit my son and me should be simple. It's just 3 quick release levers (One on the steering column, one on the column slider, and one final one on the pedal slider assembly)

    Overall, we couldn't have been more pleased. Worth every penny..............really!

    I've been playing racegames since I was little but always with controller.
    Now with Forza 5 releasing in my country I decided to go for the full experience and bought this F1 chair and a Logitech wheel. Great combo and I really love the experience.

    The quality is great, very easy to assemble and it comes with the tools to do it. Now it comes the time to test it, though feels very solid.
    The position simulates the seating of a formula car, that helps giving you a great feeling

    As near as you going to get racing a F1. Attached to a hydraulic platform it is even better.

    The F1 is comfortable even over long periods of racing.
    Forgot to mention I also use the Thrustmaster T500 pedals and the
    Ferrari wheel.

    A great racing experience, well done Playseat.

    excellent design, stability, comfort and racing accuracy.

    there was an issue with the pedal mount, which was rectified, resent, and double welded without having to return the faulty component, in under a week. excellent service and communication.
