Default Corbeau seats...anyone have them?

Looking for some new seats and these are high on the list. Anyone have them?



The A4 is the perfect adjustable racing seat for tight spaces and minimal headroom applications. Whether on the street, the track, or off-road, the A4 racing seat will enhance your overall driving experience. As a rule of thumb, the A4 will fit up to a 34-36 inch waist while the A4 Wide will fit up to a 38-40 inch waist. High wear patches are strategically placed to protect your seat from abuse in the high wear areas. The A4 racing seat is available in cloth, with leatherette high wear patches, microsuede, with leather high wear patches, and 100% black leather

:I think my Otto's are a Corbeau knockoff? At least so I was told. You know the overseas manfauctures: copy everything.

What I do know is that Corbeau has a direct fit seat bracket that allows the oem seat belt to be retained. This is really nice for you now. When I got my seats I had to fabricate everything.

So my question is how can you afford them and your new RC Truck?

I have a pair of CR1's that are pretty comfy and allowed me to drive a few x-country 12hr+ drives in a day. The stock seats had something about them that I couldn't do more then 4-5 hours without taking a break.

I know what you mean! PIA & back!

I think they were designed for, hmmmm... what is the politically polite discription, above average size bodies?

I sat in a Corbeau Baja XRS at a 4 Wheel Parts store yesterday, it seemed very nice! He said the A4 would even be more supportive, and I'm also going to be adding the lumbar supports.

I think Alex's corbeaus are the only corbeau that i have found confotable. the fixed back corbeaus felt cheap and stiff compared to my sparco and recaro. Just my 2 cents

When testing seats and planning to use a harness please be sure the bottom of the belt pass through is level with the tops of your shoulders.
