JD-Slow-Thumbs Posted January 14, 2019 Share Posted January 14, 2019 I am trying to convince myself that I should buy a â€œGaming-Chairâ€, but when I try them out I become less convinced. First â€“ They are swivel chairs and when I push away on an imaginary rudder-pedal the chair swivels quite efficiently. None of the chairs that I tried out have a mechanism to lock the swivel/yaw axis. Second â€“ Arenâ€™t these â€œgaming-chairsâ€ supposed to emulate the seat in a race-car that is tilted back a bit to make it more comfortable for long drives and lower in relation to the gas/brake/clutch pedals. So far all of the chairs that I have tried are natively at right angles to the floor and desk, and yes you can lean back in them but you cannot set a fixed 10Â° tilt (for example). On many of them the chair-back-angle is not adjustable separate from the seat-bottom-angle usually thanks to arm-rests that would get in my way. Do these â€œGaming-Chairsâ€ do more than just look trendy? Is there an easy way to lock the swivel/yaw feature on an office chair? Or should I figure out how to convert a junkyard driver seat. Thanks for any suggestions and informed opinions. JD Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
