How do you pick the best seat with our wide range of seats and prices? First you have to determine what the car’s (and track’s) intended speed will be. If you’re just starting out in street or hobby stock, your speeds will be lower, you’ll be on shorter tracks, G forces will be less and if you have an incident the chance of injury is less. You probably don’t need our most advanced Total Containment Seat (but it would be a good investment if your budget can handle it). On the other hand, if you’re running a Sprint or Speedway Car, you need all the strength and protection you can get. In general, the more advanced the class you run in, the more advanced a seat you will need. This is no place to try and save a few bucks.
Kirkey have built thousands of seats and have optimized the dimensions to fit almost everybody. If one of our standard sizes fit, you don’t have to do the following measurements unless you want to check yourself against the seat dimensions. If none of our standard sizes fit we can custom tailor one to your measurements. Either way, your numbers must be accurate to chose the right seat.
