3A Racing Seats-Anyone have them?

If so what's your opinion of them? Keep in mind my seats/car will be driven less than 4K miles a year. Just wondering if this is a quality seat for less than $200. Thanks!

What you will find in a lower price/quality seat is the limited padding, like riding on a board, and the recliner pivot points and frame stucture are not as heavy duty.

I had a set of the cheaper seats, I took the seat covers off and added a 1" think foam on the seat and 2" in the lumbar area. After that there were comfortable. Just need to get yourself a set of hog nose pliers and clip to put it back together. Most likely they used the hog nose clip from the factory to assemble the covers). The frame support isn’t bad, just not rock solid like the $$ brands.


.
Mods = None. (well maybe just a few)
DB-Performance Tune: 634rwhp @ 6000rpm , 609rwtq @ 4000rpm, (500rwtq @ 2500rpm)

What brackets do you need to buy to install the seats?

I just mounted mine to my stock brackets. Not sure how the 3A will bolt up?
