Sturdy, future proof entry race rig
Reviewed in Canada on November 30, 2020
I have now had my FGT Lite for over a month. I put about 2-4 hours of racing in per day on this rig and so far I like it a lot. If you are going to be spending around 300 on a playset, save the extra bit of money and get one of these.
I'll break it down into 3 areas.
1. Comfort. This is a pretty comfortable seat if you want to feel like you are in the car. It's like a hammock kind of sling so it feels very different in the various positions. Overall though it gives where it needs to and stays firm enough to really smash the brakes when you need to. The chair is adjustable into a bunch of positions, you can find a good one, it just takes some time and adjusting.
2. Future use. FGT Lite has space for anything and everything. I currently have it mounted with a t150 wheel and t3pa pedals. Both sit nicely on the mounts, screws supplied with the rig fit nicely in both.
I have since ordered a fanatec setup and I do not have to worry about changing or modifying my chair. It's all there to be mounted, and comes with the bolts that will fit the rig nicely.
3. Feel. The whole thing feels really nice when you get it dialed into your size and the position you want to be in. It took me a while to adjust everything, but overall now that I am in the same position every time I race, I am getting better, faster. The sling part of the chair makes for an interesting experience, sometimes I find myself leaning slightly into corners and the chair sort of leans with me a few degrees. Feels very good to drive in. I play gt sport and F1 on a ps4 and it's been excellent.
If I could have given it 4.5 I would have, only because the little orange holes in the headrest part of my seat aren't glued on well, so they move around a bit, but outside of that the whole thing is pretty well built.
For all the people who read and worry about putting it together, make usre you have the tools that are needed to do the job. An Ikea wrench isn't going to do you any favors here, make sure you use a good set of sockets and no electric tools at all. It goes together nice and tight, I have zero issues with the self assembly of this product.
Hope this all helps other people with a decision.
