Buddy Club racing seats...?

Are these a good brand for racing seats? They have them at Importfan for $540 shipped & that includes the bracket & slider. What color should I get also, my Celica is black?

The scheme i am going with on my black celica is red and black, so if i were you i would probably pick the red ones. But it all depends on what color scheme you want.

I'm thinking of going with red 'cuz it looks better, but I dont' know anything about this brand. I don't feel like spending twice as much on Bride or Recaro seats if these are just as good as those. But if they're not then I'll go with Bride/Recaro. I think the frame is FRP or Fiberglass, not sure.

If you're looking for a good value, why not just get covers made for the seats you already have..

these are from isaac's car:

Sit in them before you buy them, your body's frame might be larger than the seat's frame... Picking a seat depends on your intended use for the seat and your body shape. Side mount seats offer optimal design for high performance and competition driving. For optimal performance, the Recaro SPG are phenomenal. The ergonomics and support are so superior, it even feels comfortable for long drives. The SPG however has high bolsters and is designed for smaller drivers (below 35" waist). The Sparco REV is another good pick for slightly larger drivers. It has slightly smaller frontal bottom bolstering for easier exit. These seats are compatible with stock belts as well as 4, 5, 6-pt belts.

The Sparco Speed offers a high quality seat for a reasonable price. Finally, for street use, the Sparco Torino, Milano, and Roadster offer supportive and stylish designs. These seats are compatible with stock belts as well as 4-pt belts (Roadster & street seats will need to be modified for use with 5/6th point belts).

...

Side Mount Fixed Position
Recaro SPG: the ultimate streetable race bucket. Most ergonomic, comfortable, lightweight, and supportive seat. Advanced design with excellent bolstering allows maximum comfort making the SPG line one of the most popular in professional motorsports. Factory seat belt & 4-6/pt harness compatible. Black only. S-M sized drivers.


Side Mount Fixed Position
Sparco REV: Sparcos revolution in the field of racing seats, used by many official teams (Ford, Alfa Romeo, Peugeot, Nissan, Renault and many others) in World Rally Championships and important Touring Car Championships.

Bottom Mount Fixed Position
Sparco Speed: The Speed is an evolution of the world famous "Sprint" competition seat, which is one of the most popular seats in Sparco's line. A joint technical partnership with Pirelli has developed a new internal support system that offers improved comfort and control. In addition, the Speed has adopted the perforated abrasion resistant inserts on the side bolsters that are found on the Milano and Torino seats. This system protects the seat in high wear areas. The Speed also features the high density injection molded memory foam found in the Torino and Milano. The modified design and new features have all been incorporated to produce Sparco's most affordable and stylish seat. Not recommended for drivers over 6' tall.
