Racing seat

I just ordered a Momo cup GT seat for about $450. Did any of you guys tear the sliders out of the stock seat and bolt your racing seat to that? Or do you custom fab something up? I kinda want to keep it ajustable.

 

This whole message board thing is pretty handy.

 

Thanks,

I'd say at least 1/3 of the CMC field has rigged adjustable seats. You can buy sliders made specifically for that seat. Remember, when you have sliders, your back brace will also have to be able to adjust.

I bought an FIA legal seat so I don't need a back brace right? The guy that sold me the seat said that the universal slider won't work and that I should make my own from the stock seat. Weak.

Sube Motorsports in SoCal sells adjustable sliders made just for racing seats...I bought one for my Sparco for $150...not cheap but real strong and adjustable...you're right, you don't need back seat brace for FIA rated seats

They would not sell the slider to me without buying a seat! Apparently my $160 bucks is no good at Sube Sports.

 

Anybody else offer a similar product that you guys can recommend?

Don't get Al started on the FIA spec.

 

Essentially what he's saying is that you may have an FIA approved seat, but if you mount it with bubblegum, it's not FIA certified. The seat must be mounted to 'FIA spec' as well to get the seat back brace exemption.

 

Technically speaking that is...

Thanks Carson for reminding folks about IO Port's killer sale. Looks like I'll be buying another Kirkey road race seat as part of my order. His Redline prices for that sale are hard to beat also.

 

As for mounting seats, see the NASA CCRs, this is a very important part of safety. My mantra.... "Accidents aren't planned, safety is."
