Problem lies is racing seats have to keep in consideration for Racing Helmets. Otherwise it gonna be an uncomforable drag race.

Quick question about your shifter stick...It looks like the Hurst chrome MID height stick? Any problems with clearances? Looks great!
Its the hurst Chrome Mid height with the stock hurst shifter.

Have you driven the car with those new seats for any extended period? Comfort rating? Looks like there isn't much lumbar support. Thanks

Been driving with them for about a month. I have back problems and they are supportive for me. I have no complaints.

Of course one seat may be comfortable for one person and not another. For the price you can't complain if you don't like them after you buy them. Could dump them pretty fast on a quick local sell.

Just wanted to bump this thread to see how your new seats were working out. They holding up ok and still comfortable driving?

I don't see that he's said where he bought them from .... I've been looking through several similar seats at Cardid.com they have a lot to pick from and are a cheaper that the 6LE, sorry Mark. I love your seats but man are they expensive!

I pretty much have the exact same seats without the stitching. "Are the comfortable?" Yes and no. They aren't real leather obviously. It's fake vinyl crap. They hold me in place, so that's a plus. But they also hold me in place because they don't breathe at all, and I get stuck to the seat after about 30 minutes of driving in hot weather. And I'm not like a slob either. I don't sweat a ton but I still manage to get stuck.

Really my only gripe is that it is a faux leather, which I already knew when I purchased them, so it's no ones fault but my own. You get what you pay for. If I ever buy another set of these seats again (which I probably will) I'm gonna go with the suede ones instead. Won't hold heat as much and won't be sticky like the ones I have currently.

Yeah I've noticed that about my faux leather front seats too. Not bad, but I do stick sometimes. My rears are real leather now though (thanks 6LE!) and man I want the rear seat covers on my fronts

Yes, I wish that ALL aftermarket seats (even the cheapies from Procar, etc.) were available in a suede like material, whether real, or even 'faux' alcantara.

I HATE HATE HATE regular smooth leather (or faux leather/vinyl), and even more so now that it is summer, and I have deleted my whole AC system!

Thanks for the heads up. I guess the biggest thing I was thinking about comfort in the sense I wouldn't have an aching lower back after 20 min. Also they don't start falling apart after a few months. I didn't think about the heat part. Well I will keep this in mind when I get closer to purchasing a pair.

I found the link you PM'd me OP, but it looks like they are no longer in stock. Is there another link you could PM me for these seats?

Im not opposed to having a link here, considering I don't know of any sponsors selling seat brackets for aftermarket seats.

Well like I said I don't know how many seats they fit, so not sure how universal they really are. Some seat brackets look to have slots for the seat rails to accommodate different width seats, while 6LE only has slightly ovaled holes.
