Seach, then search more newb. Racing seat comfort comes down to your body type and preference, just like some people like stiff mattress, while others love water beds. Don't skimp on a safety item such as a seat, make sure it's FIA rated, installed properly, and aligns with your FIA rated 5/6pt harness.

Shut the **** up, bitch. No one here is going to answer your question because you're a ------ and we generally have better thing to do with our time than answer bullshit questions like this and entertain general horseshit. This is public Internet and all so I have to be careful about what I say... So let's just say that your life will be a lot easier if you stop running hour mouth because I'm probably the last person on earth that you want to **** off. From here on out you are going pm me every time you want to make a thread and I'll approve it or not. If you don't like my decision, you're not going to discuss it here. If you violate these rules, we go to phase 2. I can't discuss what goes on in phase 2 because it's not exactly legal in some states, however considering that I'm hunting somali pirates in international waters I seriously doubt the cabinet will be too concerned with some internet antics after I show them a few heads for bounty. So watch hour mouth here and don't forget who owns you, bitch.

Why are you looking for race seats? I ask this because I'm from Alexandria, LA, and I don't know of any local tracks, and the few NASA autox events I remember didn't require them. If something has changed and theirs a track near Alexandria, or Pineville I'd love to know. I've been looking for a reason to drive my miata back to Louisiana for the weekend. I could tell my wife I'm going to surprise my mom. . .

What's your need. Track days? Autocross? Drags? Street + track? Street only?

Apparently new here, but not to forum smack.

No Problem Raceway is pretty fun track...not sure how far away it is from Alexandria, LA. Either way, Louisiana is a shithole, and usually underwater.

You have no clue what your talking about Alexandria and Pineville are in the center of the state. We don't normally get the flooding you see South of Lafayette. In fact Houston gets far more shitty weather than Central Louisiana.

I had several buddies lose cars to flooding in Houston, a few years ago right around the time of one of the big import drag events. One had a 11 sec MK3 supra, and another a really fast z32.

here's a seat that will definitely hold you well...not to mention, it's extremely comfy and it reclines.
Huge bolsters, wide enough for people up to 36-38 waist (240 lbs), comes with Miata specific base AND sliders.

You can unbolt your stocker and bolt this one in, in aprox 10 minutes time. That simple.

I only have one f/s, drivers side, pictured below...
