    It is wonderfully adjustable but the big problem is the seat isn't fixed to the wheel so if you get a bit heavy footed the wheel stand will start to slide away from you. It's pretty good though and if I do get visitors I can move everything away to another room and it fits everyone ;)

    After a year or two deliberating, I pulled the trigger on black Friday last year and bought a G29, playseat and PS4. It's amazing how having this setup has increased how much I play sims, previously I'd have to get out an ironing board and setup my driving force GT!

    Argon your set up sounds like my latest set up having migrated from the sofa at Christmas... though so far my camping chair has not collapsed.......did manage to put the wheelstand on one 'leg' during Monday's manic 'banzai' sessions.....

    As a potential upgrade I recommend the Outwell Catamara XL Campers chair. Its very stable and gives good seating position - its available on Amazon in UK and pretty inexpensive.

    Thanks Richard, I've got a couple of chairs like that but I keep slamming my elbows into the arms when I get a bit too enthusiastic with my wheel. The comedy chair I have now has no arms and it's really comfy when it doesn't collapse on me :lol:

    @Argon add me to the metal folding chair cockpit club. It has a tiny bit of padding but I throw some pillows on for comfort. :lol:

    I second that, I had a Wheelstand Pro before, but the Playseat Challenge is so much better. It can also be folded and moved quite easily.

    Here is my setup...
    Logitech G29
    Playseat Challenge
    Panasonic 50" plasma
    Panasonic receiver
    Polk speakers
    The seat is very comfortable and it works well in our living room. I can just fold it up and put it away when not using. My wife would not approve for a more permanent area for my rig :D

    I might be in line for getting one of these, we are buying a new bigger house, and it has what they call a "game
    I have been hinting that I need one of these for the new house, it would look great in the game room. :lol::lol:

    Nice setup :bowdown:

    The seat is worth it Mike! It was only $50 US more than a wheel stand.

    @Never2fast1 thanks! I 2nd that, you do NEED one ;). I promise you won't regret it. I love the playseat. Only wish my TV was a little closer

    :lol:

    If you decide to get one, check the playseat store. Cheapest price I found, 30% less than Amazon

    Had to replace my samsung smart tv that gave up the ghost and decided on this one..

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-KD43X...=1532458555&sr=8-1&keywords=sony+kd43xe8004bu

    It's well built and has every function i ever need hopefully :tup: And for the first time I actually get to see GTS in HDR!! and damn my old eyes cant handle it haha :D Took me over an hour to set this tv up as it's like an iphone with the functions and security's but first impression is mind blowing seeing what I have been missing out on :bowdown:

    Wonder if it will make me any faster? [​IMG]

    Here is my set up!

    G29 with a 43' Sony X7000 TV.

    Built it with my Dad when GT4 came out!

    I've had a DFP, G25 and G27. Still got my G27. But upgraded to G29 because of Bloody PS4 and compatibility dramas.

    It is!!

    Before this I had an old chair out of a car that we bought from a wrecker.

    The current chair is 10 years old now and still going strong. I highly recommend getting a comfy chair, it makes long sessions much more bearable!

    If you are looking for comfortable seats from a wrecker I can highly recommend older Honda seats (Integra, CRX, Civic Si). If you don't mind the extra weight then just about any BMW sport seat (e46 for example).

    So this is my setup at home:

    DSC_0823.JPG

    That's a slightly older Fanatec GT3RS wheel with clubsport pedals. Works well with the drivehub in between.

    But I've swapped it for the weekend for this at the GTS world tour:

    DSC_0861.JPG

    And honestly, the tgt is good, but it doesn't have the build quality of the Fanatec, and my pedals are definitely better.

    P.S. I also got to meet @Doodle and watch him drop some bombs on us. :D
