Wheel Plate Pivot Reinforcement for Playseat Challenge
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.
Why might I need this?
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.
Screws, Nuts, Hex key and installation guide all included.
