Nice broken armrest you got there...
I realize that's just the initial fitting, but they look loooow. Have you had a chance to sit in them to see if they'll be good to go? Obviously there are higher holes on the side mounts, so you can go higher if needed - unless you have an exceptionally long torso, I think you'll need to go higher.
They look damn good, though!
Edit: At the last event I did, I took my instructor buddy out for a session. We were trying to remember if I had ever given him a ride in the V before - I knew he had ridden along in my Mustang and in my Subaru. After a warmup lap I put the hammer down and within a lap or two he was shouting at me, "Oh my God, these seats are HORRIBLE!! I don't remember having to hold on like this before, so I don't think I've been out with you in this car!"

I have only sat in it when the mounts were just mocked up. Yeah pretty low but I'm trying to go as low as possible. You're right though. I'll probably bring them up a bit though. We also discussed spacers for the street and super low for the track. Roll bar install is starting next week. Going with basic four point with an X in the rear strut supports and built in strut tower brace. My old one will be for sale then.

Looks sick bro... Love the idea of race seats in the V
Looks good! I put my EVOs in a few weeks ago and had my first outing at Road America. You'll love them. I had a height problem as well. I wound up using the entire Sparco universal seat base without any sliders. They were perfect for me at 5'11". Still low enough for plenty of head room. PM me if you need more info.Originally Posted by UnsafeAtAnySpd

Nice! Yup, our seats suck. Heavy too.
I loved my V1, but yes, the seats suck. Compared to the Recaros in the V2 anyway. Except for readjusting all the time on the track, I didn't realize at the time...
Nice work. Can't wait to see how it comes out.
Stick seats are 76 pounds with brackets each. The Evos are 18 each plus the weight of the brackets.
Looks awesome, brother!
