Install A Handbrake And Shifter on Playseat Challenge ?!?!?!

By | December 19, 2017

decided to give my rig a breath of fresh air and upgrade it a bit, and keep the compact theme it needs!
Don’t forget I had to drill my holes in the square mounting plate as the holes provided are too close/too small
Edit:: at about five minutes in I state that the RAM mount plate comes with 4 bolts, what I meant was the RAM mount plate comes with 4 bolt holes. No bolts were included with the ram mounts except for the U-boats.

    You have a lot of thrustmasters in the past how would you say their reliability is, I'm considering on buying as TS-PC racer but people been saying thrustmaster can be unreliable, also do you know if TS-PC racer will fit onto the Playseat challenge? TY =)

    @RTA MOTORSPORTS – Love this rig, awesome set up. I have the same with a G29, and I've got RAM Mounts as you have. I just have a question. I have the RAM Double Socket ARM – Size C with a RAM plate thats mounted onto the shifter.. Now when I tried to use a RAM Double U BOLT – Size C to attach it to the play seat, it's too big, as in the nuts don't close all the way and its too loose. I'm just wondering what size U bolt you used? If you could link the exact bolt that would be awesome! I'm praying its size C so I don't have to replace the plate and double socket as well! Cheers man.

    Nice Rig I got a Rseat Rs1 mounting a hand brake and shifters are really stable on it i even added dual cup holders with led lights.

    Thank you for sharing your setup. I'm thinking about petitioning the wife for one of those seats and was wondering if I would be able to get that shifter as a future add-on. Very clever solution.

    Question man on The bottom of the thrust master shifter are the M6 bullets holes already there to accept the nuts

    Check out the Ricmotech short shifter for the TH8A. Makes the shifts feel much more natural and quicker. Also the lesser movement may resolve some of your shifter moving around on your rig. Also if you decide to go with a non motion rig that is a little more solid but still takes up minimal space, check out the GT Omega ART. Been using it for a while and it is a pretty solid rig for there not being much to it. See you on the track, or more than likely during the next ISR live show!

    Could you please post a link of that exact ram mount? Recently bought the playseat challenge and would like to mount my th8a shifter like how you've done.
