FS: iVibe TFS3 Tactile Feedback

27 posts in this topic

This is the latest version of iVibe tactile feedback, TFS3.

Slightly used, in very good condition. Need to sell because

I'm upgrading to a GS-4 ultraforcesim seat. Price brand new is

$274 plus shipping. Offering it at $170 plus shipping.

Product information can be found here:

http://ivibe.com

Thanks!

Hello! I might be interested in the iVibe TFS3. Is it still for sale? what is your opinion of it? I am a 15 year old aspiring racing driver, and I race open-wheel formula cars. I am trying to make my sim rig as realistic as possible in order to get the most from it. Please let me know!

Hi Alex,

Yes this is still for sale. It does work well considering the

price. It certainly adds another level of realism. However,

it does not compare to a GS-4 seat. But it is also 10x cheaper.

Let me know if you are still interested.

Hi Mayaman,

I did not receive any messages from you or anybody else. It is

still for sale.

Thanks!

Jong, do you have your GS4 seat yet? Please PM me or let me know when you have it. I have some questions for you if you don't mind. I'm trying to get a GS4 and integrate it with my Dbox setup. And would love to know more about it.

thanks

Hi,

Thank for your reply. I was looking at both the Ivibe and Gs4. How is the Gs-4 ultraforcesim seat? Is it easy to set up and does it meet your expectations. Any information you have please share. There are rarely any user reviews for the Gs-4. Thank you!

GS-4 seat works really well. It is more expensive but performance

is a lot more as well compared to iVibe ... again you get what you

pay for. I think currently it only works with iRacing but support

for ISI based titles (rFactor, etc...) is soon available. With iRacing,

it automatically detects track/car combination and you can customize

forces settings per combination. The seat is also very well made, very

durable. The seat cover is a little thin, for some it is ok, for me I would

replace it. There are tons of rave reviews of GS-4 but it is in iRacing forum.

So if you are not an iRacing member you will not be able to see them.

But I can assure you they are all possitive.

Hi Jongtolibas,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am looking forward to buying the Gs-4 seat. I think the ivibe is cool, but I may end up like you upgrading later so why not do it now. The seat cover does look pretty thin. Maybe it is possible to velcro some padding onto the paddles for cushion. Hey, I was also wondering if you bought the seat with the transducer. If I have a buttkicker already, do you think i need it?

I highly recommend the GS-4 seat. We actually ordered 14 more units

for use in our upcoming race center business. The only thing we

changed is the seat cover which we had customized with better paddings

and custom company logo. The seat can also be ordered with a harness

if desired. We also ordered the 14 units with black anodized color as

an option. I presonally didn't like the look of the seat at first too, but

when I received it, it actually looks good.

Great thanks for the pics, do you have any others with your custom seat covers? I am wanting to change the color as well to black, how much more where these seats over the stock seat?

Do you think I could transfer the electronics of this to my Sparco EvoII seat? I love that seat, not crazy about the Kirkey design.

thanks

Unfortunately I don't have pics right now with the custom

seat cover. I think we paid about $2.3K for each seat. Additional

cost went to anodizing, plus upgrade on commercial grade parts.

Not sure if you can transfer the electronics directly. You can

probably ask ultraforcesim if they can make a custom one using

different seat.

Thanks for posting these. Info on this seat is scarce if you are not on iRacing. Didn't know you could get it in black as I think that's what I would want.

Really interested in seeing the custom seat covers you have since that is one area I think the seat is lacking. Interested in how comfortable the seat is after long sessions.

Good to see support for others Sims as well.

Yes, you can get them in different colors now. Here is a red

one:

The custom seat cover is not from ultraforcesim though ...

a local car upholster did it for us. We don't have official

photos for now but will post it later once we have available.
