    Hi chaps

    I currently have my DxRacer office chair modded as a G seat and set on my Sim lab p1x rig. But as its a movable back im finding it's moving and sits skewed/offset and its difficult to center it as ive had to mod some bolts etc. Thats why im considering just redoing it. Any bucket seats that are excellent for setting up a Gseat?

    Thanks. Been thinking about doing that myself but I think I'll connect some perferated steel band with the upper and lower part and bracing it that way as I'm moving it on sliders for my fligsim setup . I'm in Norway.

    you can indicate your location in your profile, it's always nice to click and see how worldwide the community is.

    you have some pictures of your existing modded seat?

    It's not been updated for a long time but it just has gotten a belt tensioneer in the meantime so its not much. Also it now sits on a Simlabs P1x rig . Gonna throw on a few new pics sometime today
