More product info

The original SRB. 
Suits someone looking for stiffening at the lowest price and can accommodate less flexibility in positioning the wheel.
Works best for smaller steering wheel bases (e.g. Logitech G29/G920/G923) customers with larger steering wheel bases, we suggest Classic Plus.

Same as Classic, but adds an upgraded Pro Plate Clamp for drivers with larger steering wheel bases (e.g. Fanatec Podium), or racers who want just a little more

This new plate clamp uses carbon fibre filled plastic and offers increased stiffness compared to the standard clamp and is simpler to use day to day.
Positioning of the steering wheel is still less flexible than the Pro.

This enhanced SRB which can conform to a wide range of different Playseat Challenge configurations where the wheel plate may be moved forward or back and used at different angles. It can also be adjusted to offer greater knee room.

It also includes the upgraded Plate Clamp Pro which is better suited for larger wheel bases (e.g. Fanatec Podium). The Plate Clamp Pro uses carbon fibre filled plastic and offers increased stiffness compared to the standard clamp and is simpler to use day to day.

We know the main reason to have the Playseat Challenge is its ability to collapse up and store neatly out the way… we don’t affect that at all.

The braces easily swing out of the way with the loosening of one Allen key bolt

The main brace strut is made of 3D printed Carbon Fibre reinforced plastic, which has an awesome grey finish, are incredibly strong and light. WIN WIN WIN…

The black clamps that fit around the Challenge’s tubes and onto the steering wheel plate, are made of 3D printed Recycled plastic. The tube clamps are designed to be quickly released to allow for the strut to be swung out of the way when you want to store your rig, pivoting from the wheel plate clamps.

Designed to help reduce the movement between the main frame and the pedal location frame on the Playseat Challenge.

They effectively remove one pivot point at the joint and are much larger and stiffer than the standard joining piece.

All screws, nuts and a Hex key are included, along with 4 rubber feet.

The design still allows for the Playseat to be folded. When folded, the reinforcement blocks protrude slightly and care should be taken when folding and moving the Playseat as to not damage them. See pictures.

The blocks are made of recycled plastic, but may scratch wooden or vinyl/linoleum flooring if dragged.

If you feel the pedal unit moving during operation – particularly when braking – these pivot reinforcement clamps may help.

To get a better idea; sit in your Playseat Challenge and, while braking hard, look at or feel the double pivot clips between the main frame and the pedal mounting frame.  If this moves up from the floor noticeably you should be able to feel improvement fitting our clamps.

The movement on your seat depends on how loose your existing pivots are, what type of pedals you have and how they are setup, how you drive (especially how hard you push the brakes) and what type of flooring you have.

We have found the most benefit for users with specialist pedals (e.g. Fanatec, Heusinkveld) where forces are often larger and the pedals may be mounted higher above the frame.

We find the Playseat Challenge is a great gaming chair but some of our customers find this pivot can be loose affecting the fidelity of the steering. So we took on the task of designing and making reinforcement without compromising ease of use. 
 
It took us a bit of time to come up with something that was easy to use and worked well, but we did it. The reinforcement allows you to use your Playseat Challenge exactly as before. As you close the Wheel Plate down into the driving position, the shape of the reinforcement forces the inner and outer rings together, helping to strengthen the pivot and reduce unwanted movement. 
 
If you find an up and down movement of the wheel is affecting the accuracy of your driving have a look to see where the movement is coming from. Check the Pivot (see pictures) for play or slight looseness while driving – or lift the wheel up and down from outside the rig to see. 
 
What does it improve? 
 
The reinforcement reduces the vertical free movement at the pivot so it is difficult or impossible to detect. 
 
Can I still rotate the wheel frame to get into the seat? 
 
Yes – the adjustable design is tight when the seat is ready for use but automatically frees up as the pivot is rotated for access.

    Hey all!
    Recently, about a month ago I bought this kit for strengthening my Playseat Challenge. When I bought it, I definitely didn’t expected on fast delivery, especially considering the crisis in the delivery sector and my location (Ukraine). But to my surprise, the package was at the nearest post office within 7 days. Especially I want to thank Adam for organizing the delivery to my country, although initially the store’s functionality did not imply this. As for the product itself, it exceeded all my expectations. After installation (as simple and understandable as possible), the rigidity of my portable simrig has increased very noticeably. I think the only detail worth mentioning is that when my Playseat Challenge set up to the low seating position, the planks for the wheelbase mounting plane reduce the space for my knees a little. But of course you should consider your weight and height. My height is 187cm and weight is 110kg. This does not in any way prevents you from using the simrig, just a point that should be taken into account. Maybe this can be fixed by changing the position of the seat and the tilt of the base, but I have not tried it yet. Otherwise I am completely satisfied with the purchase and I think the guys at Indigolime did a fantastic job creating this amplification kit. Once more, thank you Adam!

    Awesome product! This kit totally stiffened up the slight wobbles of the Playseat Challenge. High quality and great instructions and install videos made it a breeze to install. Thanks guys!
