    Looking some advice, was considering buying this Playseat and a T300rs GT edition wheel? Your thoughts please.

    I don't find it causes any problem, however I currently only have a 2 pedal set. When I finally upgrade to a 3 pedal set we will see. I absolutely love the seat.

    I've have a Playseat Evolution, for about 10 years, similiar to this ones design, the steering wheel mount bar is a none-issue. Once you sit in it, you'll see its a none-issue.

    I had one, years ago, for about one week...
    The seat may have changed by now, but the one I had was really uncomfortable.
    The central post bugged me a lot (using a three pedal set), if only for getting in and out (I'm "a bit" older, mind you).
    The pedal plate was not stiff enough and bended under hard braking.
    No inclination possible for the steering plate.
    But it is better than no rig, that's for sure...
    Still, there are better rigs for the same money.

    I had one, the alcantara edition, very disappointed with the build quality, the plate the wheel mounts on wasn't level and the whole rig is too flexible, especially as stated the plate that holds the pedals flexing a lot under braking, i thought the folding aspect was going to be useful, in real terms it was pointless, was too much of a pain folding it down and trying to get it back in the same place... also it is not adjustable enough, could never get it just right.. If you go for a T300 i would suggest you also get the alcantara add on wheel, the stock wheel is a horrible affair, plastic with a rubber grip on the rim.....
    with a bit of lateral thinking it is easy to build a rig for similar money

    Building a rig like that with some basic tools is really simple easy and cheap. Some steel bars you can bolt/ weld together.
    Slap a comfortable aftermarket/2ND hand car seat + rails on it and you're done.

    The hard part might be to engineer the adjustment into the rig.

    I don't see the centre bar being an issue: I'll never clutch/brake with my right foot or throttle with my left foot. So if you offset the pedals you'll never hit the center post.
    "Slow is smooth, smooth is fast."
    You put your left pedal in, You take your left pedal out,
    You put your right pedal in, And you slide it all about...

    I went one of these to avoid the whole centre bar problem. Served me very well so far.

    Playseat with the center post is for me a clear no go, you can't really use a 3 pedal setup. There are enough alternatives like GT Omega https://www.gtomegaracing.com/art-ra...ckpit-rs9-seat or Raceroom https://www.raceroomstore.com/shop_d...at-rr3055.html
