Overdue follow up to my previous review... about the chair folding and unfolding. It seems as though you have to fold it all the way closed before you try to open it. I broke it when I forced it open. But despite it being broken it has been working ok. The poles in the back of the seat stick into me so I need a cushion. I've been using it with my G27 for quite a while now and it's sturdy enough to resist the considerable force of the feedback given by the wheel. Might have issues if you are a short person.

What a great buy! Got this on special and so glad that I did. Assembly was quite easy, all parts were marked and well packed. Seat is of good quality and red stitching gives it that racing feel. For the price it is definitely worth it. For real racing fans this will really improve your gaming experience. Delivery was super fast - well done Takealot! The only small issue is that you might feel it in your back after long sessions, but I just put a pillow behind my lower back and that helps a lot. Overall good race rig for affordable price!

Bought it on a sale, what a bargain. Quite heavy, but that adds to the stability. I must say the quality is quite a bit higher than I expected. A solid unit.
It is not 100% compatible with XBox 360 wheel though, but a few cable ties sorted that out in no-time.

This is a decent rig, however I paid a lot less when it was on sale as a daily deal. I'm not sure if I would pay the full price for it to be honest, but then again decent gaming rigs are generally not cheap.
The seat is fairly comfortable and the entire rig is sturdy, but also quite heavy. The ergonomics are somewhat cramped and I found that it is much more comfortable if you asemble the seat with the steering mount the wrong way round - this means that the wheel will move up and away from you as you adjust its height. This also has the added benefit of making more room for you legs to move if you right foot brake (this is the achilles heel of most rigs that have a post between your legs to support the steering wheel).
It is easy to make up a custom shifter mount since nobody stocks the Cambio attachment in SA. I used a few generic brackets I bought from the hardware store and only had to drill one hole to make it all work quite well.
The fact that it can fold up and be stored vertically is a nice feature since I can leave it in the living room without taking up too much space or looking to distracting.
I would give it 4 stars if it was a bit cheaper, say R2500. For the listed price of R3200, I can only give it 3 stars.

This racing seat makes playing racing games much easier. The price is quite high, but hardcore racing gamers would definitely enjoy this. The seating position is comfortable, but after playing for long sessions at a time, your back tends to hurt. The fact that you can change the position of the steering wheel and pedals also makes it much easier, whether you're tall or short, you can adjust it to your preference. It's easy to assemble, and you can store it easily as it folds up. I am very happy with my racing seat, and would recommend it to anyone who likes playing racing games. Yes, it is expensive, but it is worth it. You will enjoy your racing games even more.

Great product. Good value. Works great with the Logitech G27 and GT6. You will need to make a mod for the separate gear shifter for the G27. Have spent hours in this chair.

Very heavy and takes time to put together. Takealot said that I can return it as the seat stitching was pulling apart, however after spending hours piecing it together and the thought of trying to fit it back into the box (quite a daunting task)..... check these issues before piecing it together. Otherwise good product and makes for enjoyable gaming.

Firstly the service and efficiency of takealot.com is amazing. Ordered it at around noon, delivered the next morning first thing. The first online shop that I have experienced this excellence.
The chair is great too, I assembled it without any complications and it is perfect for adult sized players, however for my kids I took it apart, turned the steering console around and placed the side bars in the back hole to shorten the seat to absolute minimum, then placed the footrest on the brace. The long and short of this is the kids use it perfectly and enjoy daily racing experience, the down is that dad doesn't fit in the chair.
I have looked and looked for a chair, seen many and this is the answer, bite the bullet if you are considering a unit and do it.
