cheap racing seats?

I'm searching for at least one racing seat (driver's side) so that way I don't slide around easily. is there anything for less than $500 and easy to install? I might bring it into a shop for installation but if I have the right tools, I could do it myself. Thanks in advance.

I don't see why not if their purpose is the same. I think just maybe the quality of the seat might not be as good as sparcos, Simpson, corbeu, recaro or bride

Re: cheap racing seats?

You really don't want a "cheap" seat.Trust me I have been down that path and the comfort and quality of the cheaper seats leaves a lot to be desired.


Maybe try to find a set of Mach I or Cobra seats at a salvage yard?

Re: cheap racing seats?

are seat brackets universal? i found some pretty cheap ones on ebay for less than $500 but don't include seat brackets but am willing to buy them separately if I am happy with the cost

Re: cheap racing seats?

Those are some nice seats. What's the cheapest set of sparco seats that are adjustable? And do they come with brackets as well or are they sold separately?
