Again I'm very heavy set and have been losing weight and I usually love frimer cushioning since I know overtime it'll hold up better than softer one. But its like rock hard. Also whatever vinyl fabric its using doesn't breath at all.
Other than that it looks cool....

Good luck that seems to be there general response "out of stock, ship it when they get more" I purchased my chair a little over 5 months ago directly from Dxracer, immediately after receiving (8-19-16) I noticed the plastic that goes where the straps for the back cushion goes one of them was broken so I sent an e-mail and of course they were out they said ship it when they received some. Well lets put it this way it finally took me writing a nasty e-mail earlier this week to get any kind of help. Yes 5 months and still no fix and amazingly enough they are still out.... how can you be out of something that all new chairs have and need to be sold. Needless to say they are sending me a whole back for the chair only took 5 months to get this corrected mad.gif

I am thinking about buying a DXRacer chair. I don't have local stores where I can try them out in person. But a local store did have a similarly styled chair from another brand. I sat on it and its head pillow landed at the back of my neck. I hated how that felt.

This made me realize that I need to make sure that won't happen with a DXRacer chair. If I buy a DXRacer, I need the head pillow to land at the back of my head.

I was considering a F series chair, but I've seen some youtubers who claim to be 5'5 & 5'6, and the head pillows on the F series appear to be way below the backs of their heads. I am 5'9. This leads to me conclude that the F series probably would not put the head pillow at the height I need it to be. Unless I am missing something?

I called DXRacer about this issue, and they couldn't give me a straight answer about which chair would definitely put its head pillow at the back of my head. They advised me to try the chairs in person (even though I have no means to do that).

Can any of you tell me for sure that my height (5'9) in combination with a particular DXRacer model(s) would cause its head pillow to land at the back of my head?

Depending on weight and what "size" you are looking for, I would probably go with the Racing Series for someone who is 5'9". I have the Tank Series, and I am 6'4", it fits me very well. The head rest is exactly where I need it to be, and very comfortable so far. I have had mine for about 8 months, and no problems so far.

Did someone fitted the 4D armrest to Formula series?

My dxracer chari is making some terrible noises when I move. It has been doing it for over a year but it didn't bother me. I recently bought a good mic/boom to do a little game recording/streaming and man, this sob sure picks up any movement I make.

Here's a demo of the sound,



Luckily I have 1 month left on my 2 year warranty because this thing needs addressing. Well, I say lucky but honestly I hate this damned chair so maybe it would be better if I had to replace it.

Mine does the same noise, just a little less. I think it cames from the wheels, they just move a little up and down. I think that if they are dirty and not lubricated, they can be stuck and make some noise.

It's not the wheels. It sounds and feels like it's coming from where the gas lift connects to the chair. I also think some of the noise comes from the underside of the chair.

Anyone here have personal experience with both Drifting and Formula?

Drifting recommends 5'9", while Formula recommends 5'8". I'm 5'7". I prefer the design of the Drifting but I worry about fit. Is there a difference between these two to the extent that someone who is 5'7" should definitely go with Formula?

Anyone else in the club that has problems with their chair?
The pump on my Formula chair seems to be failing as sometimes it will just lower the chair on its own for no reason without me doing anything while i am sitting on it

Its very annoying and i dont know if its something DXRacer covers?
Its only a little bit older then two years so its not that old but if the warranty is only 2 years then i am out of warranty

Edit: Been thinking about buying a NobleChairs Epic for a while so maybe i should just replace my DXRacer Formula?

Edit two: never mind i ordered a NobleChairs Epic chair after all so i am going to retire my DXRacer Formula
Been a good chair but its worn out
