    Who uses a simulation cockpit ?

    I'm seriously thinking of getting one as I think it will add that next level of submersion.
    However I would love to hear the opinions of people that do use them and what you think you get out of it ?

    Thanks guys and Merry Christmas.

    I use the playseat alcantara

    I was a complete newbie to racing and went from pad through non ffb wheel to full playseat with ffb in about 3 weeks. I have found the use of a cockpit very good and does add to the overall feel of the game.

    Having used the playseat for 5 months now my only issues are

    the height, you are fairly low down so end up looking up at the screen so it's not the ideal view sometimes and

    it can be a bit of a pain if you are having to get in and out of the cockpit a few times in a short period

    Other than that no issues and glad I bought it as my first

    It's a different world,living the dream,it's no where near the same experience,
    Your in the zone behind any wheel,best thing in my life I've experienced,but that's only because I built a formula ford up in my loft out of an old f1 bed and mdf,full size I hasten to add,full racing harness,surround sound built into the car,ime a petrol head and a nutter I suppose,but hey what a thrill,but it all takes time,went from steering wheel on my lap to strapping my self in a car,it's stationary but didn't want a motion one anyway,my kids think I've lost the plot,can put some pics up later if anyone is interested,ime building another next year,side by side so I can challenge my mates,to cost it all up with Xbox,mad catz setup,52 inch tv,sound system,other stuff,2 grand I expect,
    But yes,go for as much as you can afford and build on it,it's the best experience ever,

    I had the Playseat GT for about 6 months and really enjoyed the experience, it was a little low in it's seating position, I upgraded to the GT ultimate from Next Level Racing and it is perfect now. I use a 55" Samsung LED TV and I have adjusted the FOV so that I am in the correct position, distance wise. I turned the driver wheel and hands animation off as it was more of a distraction, now the experience is perfect, like sitting in the actual car.
    I love the height and position of the seat and there are so many adjustments and options for this seat. Best buy I have made.
