Woah! T1 Race Chair Gas lift to small for Chair base

For Christmas, I got myself a T1 Race Chair. Upon assembly, I noticed that that the Gas lift was actually pocking out at the bottom of the Chair base, which is quite strange as it is thinner at the bottom and then gets thicker. Presumably, the hole in the Chair base is poorly made and bigger than it should be.


It didn't really bother me much till I lowered the hight of the chair, now if I rotate the Chair the Tilt tension knob is scratching audible over all 5 arms of the chair base.

Could anybody tell me if is intended or a production fault of my specific Chair?

Funny you should mention this.... mine is exactly the same.. but.. the cover that covers it wouldn't be long enough if the gas lift didn't go into the spider so far.. i didn't give it much more thought. will monitor this thread as i feel my chair doesn't go high enough.... it's certainly much lower than my GT omega when both are at full height, will be hitting the support button if it's wrong....

but like i said.. the cover is just right for how it is right now.. and the skate wheels allows for what hangs out the bottom?

Purchased my T1 chair today, and I gotta say I'm really disappointed regarding this issue. It seems my chair has a really bad-cut gas lift and the chair's overall height is really low.

The bottom part of gas lift almost touches my floor.

Anyone has an updates/suggestions on this?

I purchased the chair in march this year and have the same problem.
After I sent request to the seller, Corsair sent a substitution gas lift element, which has exactly the same dimensions and the same problem... Very disappointing...
