OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+ models

At present, there are two OpenWheeler models on offer: OpenWheeler and OpenWheeler+, available at £270 and £312, respectively. These prices include VAT and do not include delivery fees (with the exception of the UK - free-of-charge delivery is available on all UK orders). The fortunate UK clients should allow 1 to 2 days for order fulfillment, which is very quick actually. Let’s explore how the two OpenWheeler models function.

Car racing game wheels

The basic PS3 gaming chair model built by OpenWheeler is called OpenWheeler. Irrespective of its name, you should not consider it as being an entry-level model. That’s because OpenWheeler is compatible with almost all race wheel models available on the market, which do not require a separate gear shift plate. That’s almost 99 percent of all hand wheel models available on the market. Your Logitech Driving Force GT, Logitech EX, Fanatec Porsche or Thrustmaster T500 RS will fit perfectly into OpenWheeler’s chassis. Looks like almost all major video game driving wheel models are suitable for this compact driving cockpit.

OpenWheeler+ has a special holder for an external gear shift mechanism. In fact, that’s the sole difference between the two models. Good examples of game racing wheel models with an external gear shift module are the famous Logitech G25 and Logitech G27 models.

PS3 Racing Simulator

The list of OpenWheeler’s merits is not really brief, as you will notice. Most of OpenWheeler’s features you will find in other popular and not-so-popular car racing game seats. Other features like the gliding rails and the easy navigation (thanks to its front wheels) you will find in OpenWheeler solely.

An optimal driving posture. The driver’s chair is actually a real racing seat. You will feel like driving an actual racing car. You will simply love it.

Astonishing comfort. Thanks to the real bucket seat in use and the shoulder and back support offered by OpenWheeler, the pilot can actually handle the so-called g-forces. Even though everything remains in place (the monitor, the console and the whole racing cockpit), most pilots twist their bodies following the road ahead, usually when driving under pressure or while overtaking. That’s when the g-forces we have just alluded to kick in. The back and shoulder support offered by OpenWheeler PS3 racing simulator is simply fabulous.

A folding seat back. The pilot can adjust the seat back position. The chair folds flat, so, after the racing simulation game has come to a close, it will take up less room.

Gliding rails. They will help you reach the ideal driving position. A very handy feature, especially when driving simulation video game players with different body shapes drive one after the other. Simply glide the seat backwards and forwards until the ideal driving posture has been achieved. With other racing car game simulator cockpits, you will have to use knobs to implement the necessary adjustments. With OpenWheeler, you will save time and effort.

A telescopic game racing wheel system. For regulating the height of the car driving game wheel. Suitable for both big and small driving simulation video game players.

A flexible pedal platform. Move the pedals until you achieve the most balanced driving position.

Easy navigation (thanks to the little front-side wheels). That’s an excellent idea. Two plan front wheels turn the 20-kilogram OpenWheeler PS3 racing seat into a 4-5-kg trolley. A seven-year-old child can move it anywhere with little effort.
