    got a set of those in my integra with schroth 3 point harnesses also got another set in the next room that are suppose to go in the talon... got em while i was in Germany so cheap if i told you guys what i paid you'll probably cry.....


    i like em had em in my integra almost 2 years.. and i even took 3+ hour trips in them and was quite comfortable.... they do sit rather low but the looks on peoples face when you open the door is worth it to me.

    don't anchor them in the rear seatbelt bolts. you want them anchored less than 6" below your shoulders. since you aren't worried about using the rear seats anyway, at the very least get yourself a good harness bar so you can mount those harnesses right. otherwise you stand the chance of those harnesses trying to at the least snap your clavicles, and at the most crush you.

    other than that they look good. IT'S HARNESS BAR TIME!

    Ideally you want harnesses as horzontally mounted as possible, 25deg is the max deviation. Other than getting a harness bar behind the seats, you can also look into getting an eyelet screw(FIA approved) fitted to where the rear seatbelts anchor over the shoulder. Of course, should you want to ever use the rear seats, you'd want easy clip-in mount rings.

    I'm the opposite, I personally feel that airbags were some of the worst things GM invented. They are expensive and in my opinion the money could be better spent making the car stronger(say strong integrative rollcage). The money could also be spent developing better harness systems(Ford is contemplating 4points). In the case of an off angle crash(enough to trigger airbag, but car still somewhat driveable) you have no chance of recovery as your arms are splayed away from the steering and your vision disappears as a big white bag smacks you in the face.

    So I exaggerate, and so I'm old school.....I just wished that airbags were an option and that I could save the cost of those 4 we have for something else in the name of safety.

    5'5" 115 hell even my gf is 118lbs lol

    those seats get really uncomfortable after about an hour or more on a long trip, i had one in my 92 MR2 and it actually gave me back trouble so when i get a new chair for my scooby it'll definitely be reclinable with lumbar support

    It is better to have others think that you are a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt

    Another nice Sparco seat are the EVO 2's.
    Before my WRX, I had some in my civic... I loved those seats.

    does anyone know where i can sit in a non-recline sparco or any sparco type of high quality race seat? i mean i love the look of sparcos and i imagine they will be alot tighter than the stock wrx seats and will hold your shoulders in alot better as well. the only problem i can think of with the sparco torinos is it doesnt look like they will hold your hips in very well.

    any downsides to these seats darkstar?

    Buying seats(especially racing seats...which the Torinos aren't) are a personal choice. I suggest going to a near by tuning shop to get fitting for the seats you are interested in.

    your right, i shouldnt have said "race seat" cause i know any reclinable seat really isnt a "race seat" its more like a show seat or something, i dont know. i just want a seat that holds me very well and is harness capable. its just that sparcos look so darn sexy. and i loved how the evo seats held me during the test drive.

    You could perhaps opt for a less bolstered race seat that'll serve your purposes. In the case of typical loftier sport seats, you'll still be able to use a harness, albeit usually at most 4point.

    Contrary to belief, there are some race seats(as mandated by FIA) that have recline....and many sidemounts offer recline with their many mount positions.
