Racetech Seats?

Anyone go from Sparco's or Recaro's to a Racetech 4009 seat? Looking for opinions of the Racetech seat.

Jeff , they have their own sight. Haven't seen them in person. I'm kinda of surprised that no one on the Pelican board haven't used these.

Anyone?

The seats look good in person. They are wide and definitely too large for my 5'4", 135 lbs frame.

Jeff, they do look like well made seats and I can see their starting to market them here in the states from the land of OZ.

Eric, thanks for the input. For your build they definitely would be too large. I was hoping to here from some of the people who actually have them in their car and using them. Their different from the Sparco/Recaro's.

CDOC had a Viper seat on display at the ALMS race. I was interested in their head restraint seat until I sat in it. The seat was well made and on par with my Recaro SPG and PP seats. I can't vouch for the longevity of the fabric cover.
