Default Anyone know of any group buy's going on for a set of Sparco sprint 5's?

Im looking into buying a set of sparco sprint 5's in the next month or so and was wondering if anyone knew or was interested and could set up a group buy for them. Or where the cheapist place to buy a set of 2 would be.

Kelly @ Speedware sells them. Not sure on pricing but you can view it on the companies webpage.

I was thinking about Sparco Sprint V or Speed. Does anyone have experience with both that could tell which would be a better fit for a smaller guy? I'm 5'10", 140lb, 30" waist.

From my understanding you should fit good, Im 5'8'' 130 lbs and should be a little loose. Hpopefully not too loose and i can sit my butt in one to make sure before i buy.

I wear 32" waist pants and I just went and sat in the Momo Start I got from soflarick, it's a tight fit and I can't imagine anyone larger sitting in it.

My Duc will be up at school with me until the middle of May, but after that I think I'll have an internship back home so we could do something.

I said it was a tight fit not an uncomfortable one. I love it and can't wait to install it. I'm just saying I don't know how anyone with a 34" inseam would sit in one. I'm 6'2 185 and i like it.

Who here has sat in one of these Sparco Sprint 5's.

I love the FIA certification, look, and price of these seats.

I just don't know how well I will fit.

32" waist 5'10" 180lbs. Should be at 170 by the summer.
