I looked around for a while, as I spend a lot of time at the computer. There isn't very many options out there, so after a while I decided to make my own. It isn't that hard to do, especially if you have an old office chair base. You can use just about any car seat also (trick is to use as light as possible, and to get the angle of the base right)
I have connected the bass engines to the sound card, so that seat vibrates.....
feels weird at first, similar to motor vibration in car, very realistic in car games...:s6:

Tha't's the problem, I have to be able to find the seat skins at the right price.....
It's a shame I can't source racing seats cheap.

yeah, that sux!

i remember seeing HSV had some of this stuff at their stand at the 1999 (i think) Sydney motor show. simply, they took a HSV seat and stuck it on an office chair base. they looked SWEET!

i wish someone did that for real, and didn't charge $1000+ for it! cuz car seats are made to be comfy, and to keep you comfy for hours! not like office chairs which make you sore after 30 mins!
