Karting seats

Hello, I'm after a set of nice karting seats for my fury. They have to be pretty narrow, what's for sale 😎

Kart seats wouldn't be my choice for a car, they don't tend to have head support, are quite flimsy and sized to suit the driver so as to grip you plus they are not designed to work with harnesses. Personally I'd go and did go for grp car seats.

What car are they going in? Karting seat are set up for a quite a rearward rake so unless you're in something with a very low profile - think F1 height of body it wont work well. What is the car please?

Karting seats would not be my choice for use in cars. I built my son a soap box cart and fitted a kart seat a neighbour gave us. It fitted in there OK, but as mentioned had a very rear rake (laid back) to it. The soap box cart didn't have harnesses either and the kart seat wouldn't have allowed for them to work fir/work well IMHO. For a 7 type car I'd look for GRP seats with dedicated harness slots and more back and neck support.
