a good comfortable racing seat?

i need to replace my driver's side seat because it's unsupportive as hell, making me slide around all over the place in the seat especially in drift scenarios. when i get in i'm off to one side of the seat most of the time.

i also need something a lil lighter for the track, but also retains comfort and adjustability. NO FIXED SEATS

I know Bride makes good seats. Might be a little much though. I also know Recaro makes a new seat that is fully adjustable.

The stock mustang seats have never been very supportive so you will want to go w/ an aftermarket seat for better support while racing.

if memory serves me the driver seat is 40 to 45lbs... but that may be 30 to 35 the passenger seat was like 25-30 something like that. I know the spare tire with carpet and jack and back seat and passenger seat was nearly 130lbs

Corbeau (spelling) have good seats for around 280 each~ not to bad really. They make em in regular and wider versions. I would love to have a set of nice seats like that fit much better. The gt seats DO have a little more support but not very much at all... just a tiny tad, mostly for looks.
