Ideal racing seat for 924

Postby Adelphi » Tue Sep 22, 2015 8:28 pm

Any recommendations on the best racing seat for the 924 as my current racing seat is far too narrow. I actually get friction marks at the end of my shoulders after a race, it's that bad :oops: ? I'm 6'1" and quite broad shouldered so will need to be a wide one. 8-)

Talk to Corbeau - they'll make you a custom one if necessary.

Niz,
I had the same problem with my old 924. Solved by buying a Sparco Evo seat which was really comfortable for my fat b*st*rd, rather generously proportioned 6' 2" shape. They still do it (Demon Tweeks) in 3 sizes, plus one called the Ergo that seems to be available in big sizes too.
When I sold the 924, the guy who bought it transferred the seat into his other race car as it was so comfortable...
Hope this helps

Thanks Chris. Although as soon as I see the word "Custom", ££££ signs start to appear in my head... :shock: :lol:

I use motordrive seats they are the most comfortable i have ever used.They will make custom seats and have a range of sizes available .Dont worry about the cost the better the seat the better the feel with the car , buy cheap buy twice .

Cheers for the recommendation guys. So the racing seat will be in the front, facing forward and might be a Corbeau, Sparco Evo or a good old British made Motordrive custom one. 8-)

Guess I might have to visit Autosport International in January and try out a few for size. :D

My car came with a Recaro Profi which was good but was a bit tight in the thigh area! So I got a motordrive (obviously large!!) but since using the Hans device I found it not so comfy and pinches around the shoulders - I think they can adjust it but haven't called them yet - for the A35 we needed a narrow shoulder seat to fit so I just got a Tillet one made up - looks like it should be in an S/M place but is actually very comfy and really solid - as Karl suggests forward facing is advisable

I personally have a bit of an issue with buying anything from Corbeau due to it's management appointments.....
