4.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable, almost perfect. May 22, 2011
By kkalp77

I have had my Playseat WRC for about 4 months now and can say it was worth every penny. Extremely comfortable, even for those multi-hour Gran Turismo endurance races. Solid feeling when you are in the unit -- I had my doubts about the pressure locks when I first got it and can say that the unit does not move a bit during play, even with multiple drivers rotating through 7 hours of Suzuka in the rain.

Getting in and out of the seat can be challenging, especially with the optional gear shift holder in place. The wheel support coming up from the seat makes the positioning very stable, but also limits your positioning options (since height and distance from your seating position are tied together) and can be tricky to get your leg around when getting in. I've seen other reviews saying it interferes with pedal operation but nobody using my WRC has noticed that problem.

This unit was obviously designed for the Logitech G25/G27; my G27 mounted perfectly with the included screws. Cable routing can be a little tight but with a few zip ties or velcro straps you can keep everything nice and neat (A shame Logitech does not build longer/detachable cables into their devices...). A tray for holding the AC adapter would be nice, but you can zip tie that to the crossmember under the chair to keep it out of the way.

Recently upgraded to a Thrustmaster T500RS; the wheel fit perfectly, but the pedals did not line up to the foot plate. I have heard Playseat is working on an adapter kit, but in the meantime a few zip ties will hold the pedals solidly in place.

In all, very impressed, just a few rough edges - would easily recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars close to perfect!!! December 25, 2011
Verified Purchase
A pleasant surprise: The seat worked just as promised, and just as good as the other reviewers said. The wheel I am using is the new Fanatec GT2 wheel and the clubsport pedals.

Assembly:
The unit assembled with little difficulty. All of the parts and tools are included. The items were wrapped well and NO scratches on anything! I would say it took abut 15 minutes to assemble and faster if you have a ratchet driver. The upholstery on the seat smoothed better than I thought a folding design would, and the fasteners appear to be of good quality.

Comfort:
A solid fit for a 190lb person.The padding is fine in the seat and there are no rough spots. I will be adding a small lumbar pad to make it "just right". All of the metal parts are well finished as well.

Quality/solidity:
Quite good. No creaking and only a small amount of flex. No demerits here. The clamps on the sliders are VERY solid and secure.

Cons:
A few nits to pick: 1) the bottom of the seat's rails should have rubber feet. You cannot just drop the chair on a hardwood floor and go racing. It would be a disaster. Rugs would be damaged over time as well.
2) there should be mounting plates for different wheels. Lets be honest, there are only 3 or 4 wheels that anyone would use with this. (logitech, thrustmaster, and fanatec) Why can't they have a kit that accepts all of the models?
3) angle of the pedals. It should be adjustable. but, it is not hard to just shim and modify it a bit for a better fit. Still, it would have been nice to have it included in the kit!

I only give 5 stars if the item goes "above and beyond". This item does not, but it is very much a satisfactory product that is only a few small nits from perfection!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tons of wiggle and lots of adjusting required. May 15, 2012
This is a review i wrote for a better version of this playseat cockpit but the construction and quality are all the same.

This racing seat/cockpit/mount is amazing. I need as much space as i can get, so out of all the available cockpits that are on the market now, none can be as compact as this. Not saying that it doesnt extend for us tall people, im 6'3" and ive got room to grow in this seat. I find the seat to be a little snug and not have much back support, but i doubt your gonna be sitting in this for over 5 hours.

Ive tried out tons of cockpits and done a bunch of research. This by far gives you the most bang for your buck. It does everything the other cockpits and more. But just like everything in this world there are downsides and room for improvement.

You cant adjust the angle of the steering wheel's mount. You can adjust the elevation and how close it is to you but not the angle at which it faces you.
The pedal mount will also require constant maintenance unless you buy some loctite in which case you run the risk of stripping your screws. There is a very inconveniently placed screw that requires and allen wrench and doesnt have a lot of room for you to apply down pressure to make sure you dont strip the screw. In my case, i most likely wont be removing that screw and if i need to, the construction is made of metal and heat allows loctite to dissolve/melt away so you can remove screws or what have you easier. The reason for all of this is because if you dont use loctite, or constantly tighten this screw, and the one next to it you will have a lot of play on the pedal mount. Eventually just pressing your foot on the throttle will cause the entire pedal mount to rotate to the right and same goes for the left side.
