    Hi everyone!

    Just a few facts first: I have a Thrustmaster T300RS GT and weigh about 260 lbs.

    So I have (had for 3 months) a Playseat Challenge that I broke yesterday (my fault). So I am considering a replacement. So far my choices are a (another) Playseat Challenge (https://www.playseatstore.com/playseat-challenge.html) or a Next Level Racing F-GT Lite (https://www.nextlevelracing.com/products/f-gt-lite/). I have also considered a Playseat Evolution but I am not sure about that one.

    Does anyone have any experience with the F-GT Lite? How does it compare with the Playseat Challenge?

    I am looking to buy soon...going back to racing at my desk just is not the same!

    Can anyone give any insight or recommendations for anything else in that price range ($200-$350) or can give pros and cons of what is out there?

    Any help is appreciated!!!!

    How often are you using your rig?
    I have the F-GT Lite and like it, but
    at 260 if you use it everyday and for a lot of hours, I would go with something more rigid. Just my .02.

    I race daily for maybe a hour. I may do another hour or so on the weekends.

    It would probably work. I don’t know the weight capacity of the FGT lite. It is tall and wide! My back and shoulders enjoy it as I’m 6’2 and was using a camping chair before.
