  • Published on Mar 27, 2017
  • Aftermarket Racing Seats. Learn how to properly chose what aftermarket racing seat is good for you. I go over which seat material is right for you (aluminum vs composite), how to measure yourself so you know you will properly fit in the seat, how to measure your car so you know the seat will fit in the car, and what hardware you need to get to mount the seat!

    1300 - 2000 bucks for the seats alone just buy the $200 ebay shits unless youre building a 1000hp monster no reason to buy seats worth more than the car

    • ChrisFix
      ChrisFix  2 months ago

      SydneyChromatic incorrect. Buying eBay seats is a bad idea. They can fold in a normal accident and kill you. Doesn’t matter how much power you make, a 40mph crash can happen with 100hp.
