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!
Where I got my seats (with prices):
They said you guys can call them with any ?s (973) 773-3177

  • Great video! I unfortunately live in the toilet bowl of race car supply, LOL. I haven't found a racing shop within 5hrs of me that has tester seats so I have to plan a road trip or buy them on the phone or online and hope for the best.
