Hi guys,

Just wanted your opinion in selecting one of the following rigs. I have bought the T300 RS Wheel for my PC.

1. CSL Seat (EUR300)
2. FK Automotive (EUR250)
3. GT Omega Pro (EUR450)
4. Playseat Challenge (EUR200)
5. Other?

Thank you in advance.

I can only speak for myself...

I have a Playseat and it's good Racing Seat for the relativ low Price.

But it has some things that i don't like.

The Seat is mounted without any angle on the mounting. -> Not so comfortable.
And you will sweat in this Seat because the Material can not breathe...

But it's a solid Racing Seat :)

The Playseat Evolution in Alacantara should provide more material "breathing" over the faux leather.

There's also the Obutto oZone/R3volution cockpits, which provide more accessories over your standard rig for a decent price.

I have the GT omega, lovely seat and very sturdy, is comfortable and the seat is on rails as well as ability to lay the seat back quite far.

Whatever you do, don't get the Obutto oZone.

On the outset it might look appealing but the build quality is sub-par to be honest. My triple monitor mounts don't line up properly and there's no way of moving the pedals closer to you and no way of sensibly moving the wheel further away. The further away you move your wheel, the lower it gets because of the way it is mounted.

I have heard amazing things about the Fanatec CSL seat, but it depends what you're looking for in a seat. If you just want somewhere to sit and hard-mount your wheel and pedals, that's where I'd go.

More expensive, but I would recommend rSeat. I have their older rSeat Evo v2 and love it.

Agreed. I have the Evo v3 I got on ebay for $400. I'd love the new RS1.
