A chair is something where you definitely get what you pay for. It is arguably the most important piece of your computer/peripherals because you spend literally the entire time you’re at your computer, in the chair. The reviews for it seem hit or miss. I doubt you will find someone who actually has one here on the forum due to there being so few reviews

My Build, v2.1 --- CPU: i7-8700K @ 5.2GHz/1.288v || MoBo: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E Gaming || RAM: 4x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666 14-14-14-33 || Cooler: Custom Loop || GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black, on water || PSU: EVGA G2 850W || Case: Corsair 450D || SSD: 850 Evo 250GB, Intel 660p 2TB || Storage: WD Blue 2TB || G502 & Glorious PCGR Fully Custom 80% Keyboard || MX34VQ, PG278Q, PB278Q

So you intentionally want a worse chair? I don't get it.

I have been inside a sports car and I have sat in many office chairs so I have a couple reasons 

 

1: the racing seat is a lot more comfortable to me

 

2: When I come home to play games or watch YouTube I don’t want to feel like I’m still at work. And no I don’t play games at work, but being in an office chair gives me the mentality that I am still there

You may have "been in" a sports car before, but a sports car generally doesn't have racing seats. Race cars do. I also doubt that you've sat in a racing seat for hours on end before, unless you're a semi professional driver (which I doubt.) as such, you're very likely to find that the racing seat is extremely uncomfortable for use hours at a time. If you like it, more power to you though.

 

If you REALLY want a racing seat, your best bet would probably be to buy a bucket and a seat base and figure out how to mount them yourself. Nobody (that I'm aware of) makes racing buckets for office chairs, and the only real exception to that is if you're also buying a sim cockpit at the same time.

Hey! New SIgnature! 

 

I'm supposedly a person on the Internet, but you'll never know if I'm human or not ;)
