    Like Playseat Challenge but with Shifter Mount?

    Hi all,

    I'm looking at getting a sim setup together, and I'd really like to have a shifter as part of it. The Playseat Challenge looks nearly perfect for my needs (don't have room for a full cockpit, sadly), the only problem being it has no good place to put a shifter. (I know Playseat sells what they call a shifter mount on their site. From the handful of pictures, I can't tell what exactly it is or how it would fit onto the seat.) I've seen some impressive improvised solutions around the internet, including on these forums, but I'm not very handy and ideally I would like to find a good mount rather than having to craft one myself.

    Does anyone know of a seat that is similar to the Playseat Challenge but has a shifter mount, or of a good pre-made mount that will work with the Challenge? (I'm considering going all-out and getting Fanatec gear once I can afford it; I've heard the Clubsport V2 shifter has a pretty powerful throw, and I'm not sure if this will be an issue with the Playseat Challenge or any potential mount.)

    Thanks!

    What do you mean, no place for a shifter mount?

    Hi Oscar, thanks for sharing. Is the metal piece the shifter is on something included with the Playseat Challenge (or the THP8A), or did you make it yourself? Were the straps and screws securing it to the chair also part of the package?

    No, I bought it myself from my DIY store, for about 10 or so (had to buy a big pack of screws which was the most expensive, and couldn't find packs with 3 or 4).

    So on the chair's arm I drilled two holes for the two screws you see underneath.

    You can use a different support, as long as is L shape and with a base big enough to hold the shifter.

    The bracket is really not needed, but I put it there just in case for those moments where I am more brute with the shifter

    I have to drill the right holes on the base, but I haven't got around it yet. It's on my plans though
