I'm very happy with the Recaro Pole Positions in my car. For the driver's seat, the rear mounts have been cut out, using a custom bracket, bolted to the floor.



I have Schroth harnesses with 3 inch shoulder belts -- would go with 2 inch next time for better HANS compatibility.

I have sidemount Momo Starts and a Schroth Profi II Hans for the driver, G-Force 3" for the passenger. I don't take out passengers that often, so they can deal with the obnoxious adjusters. The lap and sub belts are a dream on the driver side, even with multiple drivers on a weekend. The Schroth also comes with the mounting hardware so you don't have to buy a dozen extra bits to mount your harnesses.

A+ would buy again.

Thanks for the advice so far.
What harnesses do you currently have? The simpson formula harness that is in our car curently has only one lab belt ajuster. It does take some time to get into and out of. Hence why we are switching it out for the sparco. We have also had g force cam lock and latch n link in the car. The latch and link was the easiest to ajust as the ajusters where in the latch and link mechanism. It was a bit "pintchy" though.

I was talking to a few miata.net members at Sebring this weekend. For those looking for a high quality, narrow, fia, seat thats under $500. Check out the OMP first-R. (Will be on OG's site shortly. Call for more information.) They fit a 6' 220lbs person and are good seat for us normal sized guys. If your 140lbs you shouldn't have much of a problem finding a seat. They have a narrow shoulder wing and should fit into a interior equipped miata.

I'm running:

Driver: Momo Lesmo One with Schroth Profi II
Passenger: Sparco Sprint V with Schroth Profi II

Driver's seat needs to get lower, but otherwise, things are pretty good.

OG Racing is a safety equipment sponsor for NASA and one of the guys came down for the event (it happens to be the guy from this forum). It was good meeting you.

What were the fitment problems with the FX1 Pros? Like... didn't fit the car well? Or the driver?



I'm interested in how to get my A4s sitting lower while still keeping them on sliders.

[edit] DERP, just now realize that's not a Miata, shown. I want those damn seats, though.

I have experienced just the opposite with my down pull harnesses. I have trouble getting them tight enough between the seat and the door sill. I was gonna get up pull next. Can you explain why they are harder to tighten than down pull?

I've tried my schroths in up and down pull. I find it very hard to tighten the up pull myself. Someone out side the car can do it great, but from the seat, find it tough.

The Corbeau Baja SS seems very functional and inexpensive. Anyone know of any fitment issues? They're intended for offroad, but I sat in one and it was incredibly comfy and very supportive. I picked it up and it seemed suitably light. I think it would make a good race seat if it fits.

simple, there isn't much room. every harness (between manufacturers) is different. i know on the G force cam lock pull downs, we would need to tighten the lap belt before sitting in the seat. if you want pull ups take a measurement form the mounting points to the hole in the seat for the lap belt. we have all the harnesses in stock and can take a measurement for you before you order. to insure you get the correct item.

I had the corbeau clubmans in a NA. they fit excellent into the car and the webbing worked very well. It was a very comfortable seat. i'm 6' tall and i fit into it well. my wife at 5'5" couldn't fit. her shoulders his the side bolsters, so driving down the road she had to shrug, and hold her arms in front of her. needless to say we didnt take that car on many road trips.

the Down side to those seats is the fabric doesn't like sun. the seats yellowed after 2 years. we can get carbau seat if you call, but we don't stock them as they don't have very many motorsports applications(FIA rated seat). most are for jeeps.

Do you guys know who makes the harness that has the lap belt adjuster built into the cam lock clip? I saw a latch link like that with extra padding under the adjuster so it it wouldnt dig into you. Looks like a real damn easy way to adjust the lap belt.

OMP has the "806" it's built for small GT cars (miata, lotus ect..)



OMP 806 HSLEF SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT PRO RACING HARNESS

this was brought to my attention this afternoon. the 805 is a little less $$ than the 806 but the adjusters are movable. You can move them around, set them as pull up or pull down, set one as pull up set the other as pull down.

No adjusters on the sub straps though :(

I put the OMP 804 setup in my Miata last year. It's the same as the 806 but with 3" straps. It's amazingly nice. Easy to adjust. The best part is that the adjustment locks very positively; once it is set, is isn't going to move. It is wonderful to jump in the car and have it set perfectly every time.
