Might try one of those playseats sometime.
My current chair has some screws poking trough which prohibit me changing my position.(ouch)

Cheers Bryan.

Ok pedals etc off. Next up some sort of risen steel/metal plate with the pedals part of the plate, so out of the plastic casing and part of the stand...Sweet!!!!
