$450 Racing Seats vs. $900 Racing Seats | HiLow
- Published: 01 January 2020
- $900 Sparco seat vs. $450 Corbeau seat. Does more expensive mean more better? And is it worth it? Let’s find out.
We bought two identical 350Zs and have been modifying them to be FUN, daily drivers that you can take to the track. James Pumphrey and Zach Jobe are on Team Hi, and their car gets the expensive parts. Nolan Sykes and Aaron Parker are on team Low. Their car gets the cheap ones.
Then we test them to see which components are actually worth spending the money on.
We’ve been focusing on improving our cars performance, but today we’re focusing on the interior...performance. So we’re going to be throwing in new seats, and ALSO adding in roll cages and harnesses.
Team Hi got $900 Sparco QRT-R seats.
Team Low I got $450 Corbeau FX1 Pro seats.
Cars aren’t necessarily one-size-fits all. Especially small sports cars like our Zs. You might find the stock driving position uncomfortable. Sometimes the seats don’t hold you well enough going around a corner and you get flung to the side. If you’ve got short legs and a long torso, or long legs and a short torso, things just might not feel right.
That’s where aftermarket interior parts can come in. A race seat can hold you in place better and make it easier for you to corner hard… or it can be horribly uncomfortable if it doesn’t fit your body right. Maybe the more expensive seat has a nicer quality material on it, but the overall shape and size of the seat is really going to be a matter of personal preference. The cheaper seat might be the right choice anyway if it’s going to be easier to live with and drive in every day.
Even though Nolan is going with a cheaper option he didn't go with the cheapest option. All of his stuff is FIA approved.
