Default racing seats

k so im looking for racing seats and before i make the purchase i just wanted to ask/know what u guys think

im going with the CORBEAU brand cuz is a cheap entry level racing seat

so pretty much my 2 options are the FX1 PRO, and the FORZA


FX1 PRO (my favorite)

The FX1 Pro racing seat features composite fiberglass technology. The FX1 Pro combines comfort, performance, and safety at an absolutely unbeatable price. Designed with an emphasis on comfort, this seat is one of the most comfortable race seats you will ever sit in. If you enjoy racing and want a practical and affordable shell seat, the FX1 Pro is a hard one to pass on. As a rule of thumb, the FX1 Pro racing seat will fit up to a 36 inch waist, High wear patches are strategically placed to protect your seat from abuse in the high wear areas. The FX1 Pro racing seat is available in cloth fabric with leatherette high wear patches or black microsuede with leather high wear patches.

16lbs



Bolster Support: Ultimate lateral support with well-defined thigh, kidney, and shoulder bolsters will allow both the driver and passenger to remain in the optimal seating position. The reduction of body shifting will reduce the amount of driver fatigue and enhance the overall driving experience.

Seat Back Brace: This seat is equipped with a bolt on the back giving it the ability to be bolted to a seat back brace.

Harness Capability: This seat has harness slots for 3, 4 and 5-point harness capability. A submarine slot is already installed for a 5th strap.

Fabric: Anti-slip cloth materials and microsuede fabrics, coupled with anti-wear patches. Contains UV inhibitors. This seat has been extensively tested under extreme conditions and found to be colorfast.

Aluminum Side Mounts: This seat can be bottom mounted or side mounted. Aluminum side mounts are available which allow the seat to be bolted right to the floor.

Fiberglass Shell: Fiberglass composite shell with a black gel coat.



FORZA

Bolster Support: Ultimate lateral support with well-defined thigh, kidney, and shoulder bolsters, will allow both the driver and passenger to remain in the optimal seating position. The reduction of body shifting will reduce the amount of driver fatigue and enhance the overall driving experience.

Seat Back Brace: This seat is equipped with a bolt on the back giving it the ability to be bolted to a seat back brace.

Harness Capability: This seat has harness slots for 3, 4 and 5-point harness capability. A submarine slot is already installed for a 5th strap.

Fabric: Anti-slip cloth and micro-suede materials, coupled with anti-wear patches. Contains UV inhibitors. This seat has been extensively tested under extreme conditions and found to be colorfast.

Steel Frame: Extra strong, lightweight, powder coated tubular steel frame. This seat is equipped with a bottom mount system only.

19lbs

last picture is the FORZA seat

so let me know what u guys think

I had a Forza in my old Hyundai race car, and daily drove in it. It wasn't the most comfortable seat in the world and the fabric wore fairly quickly (related to how I had to get into the car). It was easy enough to recover.

Good choice on going with aftermarket seats. Weight reduction at it's finest.

Sunroof? Very heavy and can be filled with a 2 pound carbon

Have the fx1 pro. Love them. I suggest side mounts over sliders as the side mounts make the seat much stiffer, less side to side flex
