The P1-X is a very strong rig, meaning it is capable of handling the most powerful Direct Drive wheels with no flex, exactly like the Trak Racer TR160 - both the P1-X and TR160 are equally as strong & rigid. However, the TR160 is much better value for money than the P1-X. Furthermore, where the P1-X lacks in comparison to the Trak Racer TR160 is the 'turnkey setup' - the P1-X ships with no accessories, just the bare chassis; the TR160 on the other hand is a complete turnkey package, which includes brackets for a seat, seat slider, shifter mount and rubber feet, all in the price of the rig! With the P1-X, you need to order all these parts sold separately - doing so, that adds over £120 more to the cost! This highlights how good value for money the Trak Racer TR160 is in comparison.
As well as this, the aluminium profiles are great for adjustments and customisation, though aesthetically are perhaps not to some people's taste.
As highlighted before, a weak point of the P1-X is that, for the money you spend, only the barebones frame is included. To get racing, you need a seat, various brackets/sliders and other plates, all of which are sold separately, which adds to the overall cost of the setup a lot.
You will need to buy a seat separately - for some people, the hassle of having to source a seat is a negative - if you are in this group, you should do for a bundle of the Trak Racer TR160 with either their GT or XL Rally style seat. For those who don't want a seat included, the TR160 and P1-X are available as chassis only, so you have unlimited freedom to decide which seat you want - you can make your setup individual and unique. There are many seats to choose from, browse a selection of them here. We recommend the Sparco Circuit II QRT Sim Racing Seat, a special sim racing version of the Circuit II seat, which is generously sized so perfect for larger-sized people; and the Circuit QRT sim racing seat is available for smaller-sized people.
