    Playseat RC.00002 Reviews

    Challenge Racing Seat is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from All it says it is. I was concerned that the seat might not be secure enough but every thing feels solid and secure once you sit in the seat. My previous seat was a DIY PVC seat that I made and this feels as solid as that did. And this folds up quick like a bunny and has much better build quality than the seat that I made. The only thing that prevents me from giving it 5 stars is that the frame's angle is not quite right for me personally. What I'm saying is that the angle of head tilt is fixed, as the frame that supports your back turns inward and supports your head, and I'd like it to be angled back just a little bit, but I'm not getting cramps or anything like that, I'm just noticing I'd like my head a little back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Small Living Spaces You have to have a racing seat if you are going to experience the game to its fullest.  This seat works great for the experience.  It is easy to set up and put away, and takes up hardly any space for storage.  Too small issues.  1) The arm rest buckles can dig into legs a little, but this only becomes noticeable after 30 to 45 minutes of playing (just add additional padding and issue is resolved).  2) The wheel can bounce up and down a little bit (this does not however affect game performance).  I just 3D printed a stabilizing bar from the wheel base to the lower seat bar and problem solved.  It is compact and the lowest price option for a racing seat that you can find.  (Human dimensions: 510 and 220 lbs ish.)

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good price and convenient, but far from perfect... I bought the Playseat Challenge because I don't have a dedicated location for a racing sim. I can move my desk chair out of the way, unfold this seat and be driving in a few minutes. It does those things well, but I rated it neutral because it has some deficiencies. First the pros.... It is sturdy and looks good. The fabric is very nice and the pedal setup works very well. It is a big improvement over my desk chair with the pedals wandering about on the floor. Now, the cons .... The first is the height. The seat sits very low. It is adjustable, but trying to raise the seat using the adjustment strap results in the head rest which is just a forward bend in the frame, being too far forward and hitting my head when I drive. In addition, the steering wheel ends up far too close to my chest. I noticed that it could be adjusted by removing the screws for the hinges and moving the hinges to a different set of holes. I wrote to Playseat to ensure that doing this wouldn't void my warranty. They never responded. There is no documentation for adjusting or using the seat, other than a very poor picture book for assembly. So, while the seat provides a sturdy and comfortable way to drive my sim racer, the poor documentation, poor support, and limited flexibility make it less than the 5 star experience I was hoping for. I would recommend it with some reservations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from B&H is super quick and I will buy from them again Set up was quick and easy. It makes driving games so much more fun. The only thing I did not like about it was how my Microsoft X-Box 360 Wireless Racing Wheel attached. The ad says it works with all wheels. Technically, that is true but to connect my wheel you either have to just use the supplied velcro or buy an adapter plate for another $32. The velcro works just OK - not as stable as I wanted so i will buy the adapter plate. Easy to move to the closet when you are done and the quality seems pretty good. B&H is super quick and I will buy from them again

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Small adult/child sized There should have been a disclaimer on this thing that said it is sized for small adult/child. I’m 6’3” and the top of the headrest sits solidly in the base of my skull. I don’t exceed the max weight for it but the angular hoops that hold the Velcro adjustment starts on each side of the seat dug deeply into the side of my thighs I only attempted to use it for a couple hours and still have deep bruises from it a week later. For a bigger person this seat is a torture device. Should be note on it saying not taller than 5’10

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good racing rig Im 62 and this fit perfectly. I wanted something I could move at my desk do a quick race then fold away and this fit this purpose perfectly. Only need 2 U-bolt + 1 L + 1 triangle bracket for a grand total of 5$ and you got a shifter stand!!!  Thanks B&H, fast shipping as usual, would buy again. J.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crazy immersive for a low price Bought this to set up my first sim-racing rig and have no complaints. At 61 and 240 im not small, yet i fit comfortably into this. for the low price point, it is very sturdy and is very immersive for the games. And that it folds away so small is an awesome bonus

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice It is a good product, comfortable for hours on end, it is adjustable to a point taller people may have an issue with it. My only complaint is that the steering wheel mount has play in it but not distracting at all. great product for the price
