    My only issue with this cockpit is storage and the gear shift mount location - feels like your driving a 18-wheeler.

    Should be right at home when used with Euro Truck Simulator though :p

    Nice review! Will any bottom mount seat work with this rig?

    The 80/20 that the shifter is mounted to, cannot be lowered?

    The shifter location can be moved, but for the review, I was limited by a cord's length. That's being fixed though. :D

    Besides, I like to think of it as more of touring car, Civic Type R approach.

    I'll have to check, but I'm pretty sure it would. The base's mounting points can be altered to fit just about anything, I believe.

    It can, yes. It can also be moved back towards the driver too.

    I've owned one of these for several years and can honestly say it is a Great investment The modular construction makes it easy to be owner modified if need be. It's as good and loved as the day I ordered it.

    I have owned a GrandStand Cockpit for several years. It has been the key to my complete mental immersion in SIM Racing.

    Completely solid, never a problem in any regard. As in all racing, it is a logical routine to check & retighten periodically.

    Thanks to the Design and Manufacturing Team for excellent work.
