    So I need a new racing seat...

    I have a regular Playseat Alcantara today but want something better and more stable together with easy add-on mounting options, shifter, e-brake etc.

    I found two so far(withing resonable price range).

    1. Next Level Racing GTultimate V2 Simulator Cockpit from Pagnian

    2. The GT Omega PRO Racing cockpits. or ART Racing

    Anyone that has any of the above and can tell me if they are any good or not.

    Cheers

    Here is my buddy's full RS1 setup (with the rSeat monitor stand):

    We had it at a car show (unfortunately running iRacing). I have the older Evo V2 and love it. The RS1 improves on a few shortcomings of the V2. I was very jealous after using it.

    If you can afford the rSeat then go for that, I haven't tried one personally but they are by all reports of the highest quality.

    I have the Next Level Racing Wheelstand without the seat. While it is a decent and very solid wheelstand and fit my purposes best of the options for a moveable foldable wheelstand, I would have a hard time recommending it based on the quality control issues they have had and the fact it has not aged as well as I would have liked. There is more movement in the pedal board and some squeaking rattles have reared their head.
    I should take a closer look and see if it is a particular bolt that might have just worked loose in one of the hinged folding parts.

    I have the GT Omega Art with the triple screen stand, was'nt expecting high quality kit for the price, but that was what I got!

    Easy to put together, and very sturdy piece of kit.

    Have logitech g27 kit attatched and everything fitted without needing modification.

    Bunch of upgrades available too.

    Not wanting to hijack Boskapongen's thread, but has anyone fitted a direct drive wheel to one of these, ie Leo Bodnar??

    Have a look at this (and don't let the low price fool you). It is built like a tank.
    Highly adjustable, heavy, nice finish, expandable.
    I have mine for a few months now, couldn't be more satisfied (even after my rather good RaceRoom 2000, which lacked the possibility to change the angle of the wheel base and pedals).
