Racing Seats

I found these and wanted input on what people thought. I know they are cheap but I don't know if I want to spend the 1000+ on Sparcos or MOMO. They look decent and have no idea if they are SCCA legal but if they don't say anything on them I may get them.

They look ok, not sure how comfortable they would be though. If your looking for cheap seats, Ebay has many to pick from.

These seats with sliders comes to $400.00, Ebay offers similar sets for around $270.00

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

I would be interested to know what seats you decide on. I have been looking into buying a pair but at $500 a pair for nice ones, I'm a little discouraged. Keep us updated.

Your seat/seat belt is the thing that is going to keep you alive if you are involved in an accident. Think twice before you go cheap. Improperly installed/cheap seats can lead you to see me at work. Level One Trauma centers are no fun.

I have corbeau TRS seats in my 84 and love them. They support you MUCH better than stock and look great.
