Default Another seat question (Momo)...

Ok guys, I think I have narrowed down my choices to the Momo Start http://www.automotion.com/productpage.aspx?pid=111779 and the Momo T-Club http://www.polepositionusa.com/produ...-seat-1756.cfm.

My question comes from their dimensions.

They both have the same outside dimensions (base and shoulder wings), and both also share the same internal dimension (hips and ribs).

How can this be if one (start) is a fiberglass shell, and the other (t-club) is a steel frame?

Wouldn't the steel frame have tighter inside dimensions?

Anyone have any perspectives on comfort between a steel frame and shell seat?

Thanks guys!

I have a momo T-frame, which I believe was the precursor to the T-club.

I does fit in the Miata and holds you quite tight, but is not as comfortable as many other seats I've sat in (in Miatas or Lotus). It is also fairly heavy.

My recommendation is to go for a fiberglass shell

I have a start. Im 6 foot with a 36 inch waist, 180 lbs. I fit just right, with a little wiggle room. Its quite confortable to me, altho some of my friends dont like it. I think it depends on the person.
