racing buckets

I did a search but didn't find much info.
Thinking about some of the summit or jegs racing buckets for my camaro. The car will not be a daily driver and will see plenty of strip time . 4 or 5 point harness probably but I don't intend to put in a cage so proper mounting of the harness may be an issue.
Does anyone have any experience with the cheaper covered seats

I can tell you this...the cheap plastic seats with the thin covers are no fun to sit in more than 10 minutes at a time. No support, the thin padding might as well not be there at all.

If you search Ebay you can find many sellers of new, decent "import tuner" type seats that are much like the real seats used in new cars...for a decent price - around $200-250 a pair shipped. They are light, most recline, have 4-point harness holes, most come with sliders, and they are quite comfortable. You are already planning to spend $150 a pair for the plastic cheapies w/covers, so pony up a few more bucks and get a real, nice looking and fitting seat.

The type I am talking about is virtually identical to the Summit Sport seat/Procar Race seat, leather or fabric covered.

This is one place the import world can be a help to the American hotrodder.
