Are Aftermarket Seats Worth It?

We’ve added a ton of bits to Miata to make it fast, and the only thing we’ve really added for safety on the track has been our roll cage. So today we are looking at aftermarket seats and harnesses. Yes, they look cool BUT does it make sense to add them to your car, should you even be rocking a sweet OMP seat and OMP harnesses? And if so how do you install them? Let’s do this!
We have a new channel!
Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

  • This is a question to anyone that knows stuff about racing or cars. If you have a harness in your car and it's still a car you drive about town I would think you wouldn't wear a hans device and a helmet. How would you prevent internal decapitation if you got into a fast wreck while wearing a harness but no hans device or helmet (just driving on the highway or something)?

  • The seats look great! Question, have you or any of your buddies with a 38" waist rode in the new seats? I'm 240 Lbs and finding a seat that fits me is harder than finding seats that fit the car.

  • I’ve just bought some nrg seats for my 2000 civic and I want not able to use the factory sliders with the new seats because one was bottom mounted and the other was side mounted so I had to just buy some non sliding seat mounts. Everyone I’ve seen install new seats had been able to use the factory sliders

  • This is my wife's complaint every time we take the c10 out and she's bracing on the dash, door and ceiling, even with a three point seat belt. She is gonna LOVE some race seats! At least that's what I think. If she questions me, I'll show her this video and explain how it was all about making her feel comfortable. Yep, that's the plan.

  • thanks for speaking on head and neck safety with harnesses. Alot of us are only using our cars on the street and not track but still want race style seats. I think the dangers of using a harness with out head/neck restraint is largely unknown by many of us, especially those that are new to the car community.

  • Fk that! You give your passenger the cheapest ass seat you can find but can still go racing with. They get to ride in your race car for free, they deserve zero comfort. The savings can go toward tyres, yo!

  • Often I think about upgrading my seats. Or at least just the driver’s seat. But the issue I have is that my rear seats are still used by my children. And I feel the harness would hinder the back seats area.

    Ryan VollRyan Vollپیش 3 ماه
  • The only reason I am interested in a fixed seat is because I swear my seat adjusts itself gradually into a laid back position that I do not like. It would also help reduce weight a bit, maybe get me a little lower which means I could see traffic lights a bit better, and of course the obvious benefits that come from a properly sized seat.

My right hand slid in between the two front seats and firmly gripping the driver seat frame. I crushed the left door panel doin a hard right handed one day so the switchboard for the windows and seats would always fall in... Good times :)
