The cockpit for race sims is a high hurdle... We recommend "Playseat Challenge"!

レースシム用コックピットはハードルが高い…それなら「Playseat Challenge」がオススメ!
Review

At funglr Games, we use several gaming chairs.
They are used not only for gaming, but also for breaks and meetings, so we know firsthand how versatile gaming chairs are, but there is one man who complains...
The " GTRACING GT-BEE " gaming chair we use at funglr Games looks great and has back and lumbar support. It also has a rocking function, so what's not to like?
Let's hear what Yu-chan, a man who loves racing games, has to say.

一番気に入ったのは…値段だ。GTRACINGのゲーミングチェア「GTBEE-BLACK」開封式&レビュー!

Are gaming chairs unsuitable for racing games?

Yu-chan enjoys playing " Gran Turismo SPORT " while sitting in the gaming chair.
However, she is not satisfied.

"When I step on the pedals, the casters pull me backwards..." "When I turn the wheel, the chair turns around..."

"When I turn the steering wheel, the chair spins around and it's hard to play! "

Normally, casters and swivel functions are convenient, but they seem to become inconvenient when enjoying racing games with so-called " handicomputers " that have handles and pedals.
So we decided to buy a new cockpit for racing sims!

Easy to assemble, no tools required!

So I bought a "Playseat Challenge ".
Many cockpits for racing sims are expensive, costing 50,000 yen or 100,000 yen or more, but the "Playseat Challenge" is relatively inexpensive at just under 30,000 yen.
Moreover, it can be folded up and stored when not in use, making it perfect for the funglr Games office, where a variety of games are played.

The contents include the seat, frame, handle base, other included auxiliary parts, and instructions.
Since it is mainly composed of pipes, it looks like all you have to do to assemble it is to insert it.

Included parts are cable ties and hook and loop fasteners. It looks like they can be used for putting together wiring.

The instructions are illustrated, so even those who find it difficult to visualize the work in words can rest assured.

The back contact can also be adjusted with the hook and loop fastener.
Driving position changes with body shape and height. It is very nice that there are so many adjustable points.

Wires can get caught and tangled if left hanging down, so use the included cable ties to tie them together.

Considering the opening and closing of the handlebar base, it would be better to leave a little room for the wiring to crawl into the frame.

The pedal base can be adjusted forward and backward, so make sure there is plenty of room here as well and wrap the cable ties around it.

The red line on the back side is useful for aligning the length of the left and right sides. It is quite clever.
