    I use a Granstand as my cockpit. It's a pretty good price, extremely sturdy when all the bolts are tightened down completely adjustable for any person, and it;s made from 80/20 aluminum extrusion tubing, so you can easily make mounts for just about anything, The only downsides that I can think of that the depth tray where the wheel mounts leaves little room to mount a button box.

    The buttkicker will work on any system with a sound output. But as you can't really choose what sounds what's going to activate the buttkicker you will also feel it rumble by music in menus etc.
    On the PC i have a software called Simvibe that uses a dedicated sound card for all the rumble-sounds instead. So that means it only rumbles on the sounds i choose in the software.

    It does work and surprisingly well with xbox one and project cars.. Sim vibe is not an option with consoles but the buttkicker can still be pretty good by adjusting high and low pass through on the buttkicker amp. Also project cars has a good mono signal so you do get right and left curb effects. My advice is to isolate your chasis so you can run the buttkicker at a low volume.. This allows low engine rumble, curbs, large bumps and the ability to feel a thump during hard gear changes without hearing the constant rumble from wind or every bump. Race room gameseat already comes with built in isolators around the chasis but playseat requires the gamer 2 isolation kit and you will need 2 additional isolators to properly float the chasis.

    Some wireless headsets will work as well. Older headsets that like that that use optical should work good. Some of the older turtle beach units have been rumored to produce better effects than the cheap 20 dollar converters.
