Someone on M.net bought a pair (They aren't certified for prof. racing). I've considered the Buzz, but it's not at the top of the list.

No that's ok, I don't think they look at ratings. But say on a road course event where the measure your roll cage thickness and check your harness dates and so forth, you wouldn't be able to use it. That's all. No biggie.


BTW, buy two seperatly and you'll save on the shipping charges. I priced them out. And for the price, there is no reason to not get a matching set.

cool, I dont think I will ever be racing on a road course, though I would like to go for a spin on the miller motorsports track they just built a couple towns over.

it doesnt look like those come with sliders??
you would have to get a multi point safety belt with those too?

the konig v-racing seats are actually made by Cobra i believe. So it should be good quality. But without an FIA rating i wouldnt want to be in one if you crash.

Yeah, they are Cobras. The were goign to partner up and sell them, but it fell through and now they are just getting rid of them cheap.

Actually I think they got the rating, and then it was taken away? Not sure. But they are just not certififed by a particular group for a particular purpose. It's not like OEM seats are FIA cert.

yeah the seats say cobra all over them, I didnt get to trying to put them in last night, I will after work though.

and they did have the FIA cert, some of the guys on m.net show a picture of the FIA cert on the bottom.

it rained for almost a week straight so my car is dirty! plus there is alot of construction near my work, thats why it is so dusty....
after work today I am going to take a shot at putting them in... I dont think it will be hard to do.

They look good. I have been in the market for a set and I just may go with these. Let us know how they fit and what you end up doing for sliders. Thats cool to know they are made by cobra...I love the cobra seat in my Spec Miata.

Also, where did you end up getting them from?
