How do I make my Sim Racing Chair not to move when I Brake?

How to stop sim racing chair from moving when braking

More and more people are getting into sim racing every day and one of the most frustrating things is when your chair shakes when you brake

I know this from personal experience before upgrading to a more professional cockpit.

It can be very hard to focus on what’s going on in the race with all the shaking going on.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this issue!

You just have to fix up your seat so that it won’t move when you brake.

This blog post explains how to do just that!

There are a few ways to make your sim racing chair stationary.

  • A pair of office chair feet can be purchased for less than $20 on Amazon. The most convenient option because they don’t scratch the flooring at all.
  • You can put two of your chair’s wheels inside a pair of old shoes and it won’t move at all!
  • You might even remove the wheels from the rear legs and use two door stops. Take off the back legs’ two wheels, too.
  • Another option is to use furniture or construction adhesive to attach the chair directly to the floor, but that doesn’t sound too smart, does it?
  • You can also use a rubber band or strap to keep the chair from moving.
  • With some rope, tie the chair to the desk and you’re good to go.

If near maximum brake pressure your chair moves, then these solutions are for you.

Whichever method you choose, just be sure to test it out before your next online race!

I hope this quick guide was helpful! Thanks for reading!
