We are finally purchasing a containment seat for the CRX, looking to get your opinions on seats you currently have or have used.

I've tried out the Sparco Circuit 2, Pro AVD and the Omp HTE-R at Perry last time i was there.

Also if anyone knows of a used seat in like new condition around here that would certainly save some money. Dates do not matter.

James bought a Bimarco containment seat for his last rally car and seemed to like it a lot. Fairly cost-effective, too.

I have a Cobra Sebring Pro in the e30, we like it a lot. I had a pretty decent side impact in it and walked away without issue!

These one piece seats are not as good as a full containment, but much better than a standard race seat.

It fits me fine, bit tight in the shoulders. I think Chaddock and Tim were pretty mint in it if I recall.
