    Hey..

    When I look at this video and compair it with my setup it seems to be almost lieing down in the seat here. In my setup the angle of my seat is more straight up. Is this better/more fun/realistic to be lieing when playing?

    I've experimented with the angles on my seat as well. What I noticed is the more leaned back you are, especialliy when fully accelerating, the more G-sensation you get. At times I'm in 3rd gear at full throttle and the seat is pretty much upgright. It just didn't feel any special. By tilting the seat back more, your full throttle position would lean you even further, while braking would just put you upright. I also noticed by moving the pedals further away from your feet, you get more of the sensation of speed since the chair leans you back enough that you have to stretch to reach the pedals. This is the same sensation you get when running down the 1/4 mile where your fighting the G's to keep your foot planted and hands on the wheel.

    Try it.
