Hi guys,

I will be building 8020 rig but O have hard time choosing a seat for it.
I will be buying it online therefore I need an advise. Would you recommend folding or with fixed back? Fiberglass or steel frame?
So far I looked into Sabelt Racer DUO, Sparco R100 and other fixed back Sparco models, OMP First R.

Always fiberglass, much more comfortable and you can screw bodyshakers directly to it. A fixed bucket seat feels great and look racing. A folding seat is just a seat from any vulgar road car. Oh, and you can buy replicas. They may not be as perfect as original bucket seats but they are almost half the price.

Hi, thank you for a reply. Do you know any particular websites that sell replica seats? I only found BRIDE replicas.
