    I need to start sitting in seats, I’d like something lighter and comfortable enough to drive a couple hours in without needing a chiropractor afterwards

    Dropping 140# is awesome but it does not equate to 3 tenths.

    Man and those are comfy enough for a weekend cruiser? My longest drive is about 35 min or so. Most in the 15-20min range.

    I have kirkey road race seats in my track car. While comfortable on track, I would not want to daily drive these.
    As for holding you in place with sub 100 track tires, awesome
    If i remember correctly, 15 lbs each

    Ok thats about the max one way for me. How bout install...any special notes regarding brackets and what not? Will they work without harness if I utilize factory seat belts?

    Mine def. isn't a daily. 2-3k miles a year. Might not drive it all the weekend.

    Install was easy I used these brackets https://www.racecraft.com/racing-se...8.html?zenid=de2d79a5524cde80cc38cf5084351de1 . As far as the stock seat belts go I guess they would work. I would recommend doing a harness bar though.

    Damn! I had a friend measure like racecraft said and got a touch over 17" so they said round up to at least 18". Just nervous; don't want to have to ship these things back and forth.

    UPDATE: Make sure you use a straight edge to measure across the back of your hips. Kirkey has a diagram showing how. Kirkey got rid of the 18" in lieu of the 18.5. Racecraft claims that won't fit the pass side due to the offset, hence the 17" only for pass side note with their brackets. I've talked to a guy running 18" on both sides fyi so maybe you could squeeze it.

    Seats are ordered. I plan to throw them in next week so I'll update.

    I just got my car and it was setup for open tracking for my uncle who is a bit smaller than me. I'm 6' and 235 and he is 5'10" and 190. It's a Corbeau FX1 Pro seat not sure of the specs. It's a snug fit for me but once I "snap" into it I can tolerate it.

    Corbeau FX Pro's. I figure they shaved about 50 pounds over the stock ones.

    I was ready to pick up a pair of Corbeaus, but I seem to read more bad about them than I would like to.
    Recaros are just too expensive.
    Maybe Braum?
