    Racing Seats Sharing Thread

    I recently put a new seat in my ST and I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we could share our setups. Feel free to add to this thread to share what you are running.

    Sparco Evo
    Recaro Slider (inside track)
    Planted seat base
    Planted side mounts (one right angle on the inboard, one offset on the outboard)

    It took a bit of trial and error to find out what combination of side mounts and spacers could mount this seat decently in the car. You really need a right angle side mount on the inboard side to get the seat as close to the centerline of the car as possible. Due to the wide nature of the Recaro slider, an offset side mounts and a combination of spacers was needed to get everything to fit up. Check the pics for details. I like the height of this combination where it's set. The aggressive bolstering on the seats make it slightly more difficult to operate the shifter. I am hoping the addition of a Breedt shift arm set in the forward position will help.

    That's a sweet looking setup 10speed, any installed photos? Also were you able defeat the "airbag fault" that comes from doing a swap??

    I plan on getting some seats in the future too, but that planted bracket, rails, and slider looks pretty high after. Do you still sit lower or the same height as stock?

    Ended using planted bracket and mount did not use rails. Fitment was easy the seat had to be pushed closes to the glove box for it to be centered. I am 5’8” and I bearly can see over the car with the side mount at the highest point. The mount is floor low.

    Is this for actually taking the car to the track or just scene points? Lol

    @HellaFocalST if you havent found a solution yet, I may the guy for you. I sourced information from a few video I watched as well as a few forum including focusrs.org and I may have a solution for those that have or want aftermarket racing seat in their car with no sideairbag and their airbag light is on and they have found no solution yet to turn the light off. All others airbag would function properly after this mod. If anyone is interested in this, im installing a racing seat probably in the coming week and will try and apply what i know to solve the infamous airbag light on problem, I can write a quick how-to for those who could be interested! if so, lets me know ill be happy to help

    Just put a 2 ohm resistor on the airbag control module side. This will trick the RCM (aka SDM) into thinking an airbag is there.
