Drag Racing Seat (what do you use)

I'm in the market for a good seat, I'm not a fan of de-foaming my stock seat and the only aftermarket seat I've found was the Catalyst Drag seat.

http://store.schnitzracing.com/catal...i-zx10r-04-10/

Has anyone ever used this seat, if so how'd you like it?>

Just put one on mine, haven't made it to the strip yet to see how I like it though. Some guys have their stock seat redone as well.

Just asked this, did some searching, and got a spare seat from ebay. Took the staples out of the front two thirds, cut the foam out, put some thin foam in. Restapled.

Have not been to the track but it seems like it will help. The Catalyst was not too expensive, may try it later.

Yea I saw u posted but I was looking for more info on the catalyst seat becuase I don't want to cut my stock one.

After all the research I went with the drag seat ill let you guys know how it is for the $100 I spent. Hopefully it's worth the money.

Thanks guys

Try the catalyst website they make yours soon as you pay so it takes a little while. The other websites like schnitzracing just take your payment and order from catalyst anyways. This was told to me when I called them and was about to order until they where about 30$ more expensive then the manuf website.
