    Just heard from GT Omega that they will be launching their new Titan cockpit stateside by the end of February. This was made available in the UK last month, but in an incredibly limited supply of only 10 units. Looks like a really good offering for a mid-range cockpit that will be much sturdier than their Pro version.

    Looks nice, but it's gonna be their higher range option. £430 is about $560 USD. That's a lot. Their current options the ART and PRO cockpits are $410 and $420 respectively. That's the price including their cheapest seat, the RS6. Not a bad deal at all for a full cockpit, but another $100 on top of that better be worth it.

    I've got the Apex Wheel Stand that they sell a rear seat frame for and their racing seats are sold individually so I can buy those two things to upgrade my wheel stand to a cockpit. Free shipping is nice though so $284.90 is exactly what it will cost. Maybe with my tax return, the same excuse I used last year to by the wheel stand...

    Yes, this is their top of the line offering. Based on the construction it looks like it will be in the realm of the Sparco, RSEAT, and Trak Racer offerings while being a couple hundred bucks cheaper.

    The biggest concern I'll have is with the seat since I've heard that's GT Omega's weakest point. So it'll be interesting to see if the frame itself supports non-GT Omega seat bolt patterns as the seatless option will only be ~$400.

    That's my concern too, can I use other seats or is it their proprietary attachment setup.
