Low seat for Fury

Hi, what is the lowest seat that people have found in a Fury without fitting a bag seat?

I assume a fibreglass style would be best without much or any padding, what have people found to be good?

Thanks

In my striker, which is the same, I have a # shaped frame with no runners. This is with a GRP seat and sits very low.

How are you guys mounting direct to a flat floor panel?

Surely you are reinforcing it somehow?

I've been looking at the JKcomposite seats for mine but has anyone fitted with runners and how do you fit the runners?

JK seats in my fury.
Sliders on drivers seat.
Passenger seat bolted down.

I have lowered my drivers seat floor as well.

I have base mount version jk seats, with a supporting frame for the runners as the striker seating area is too small for the seats to slide with the seats runners directly on the floor, you will be able to the runners directly onto the floor panel in your fury with the extra room.
The plain shell type need supporting on base/edges/backrest in multiple places, and are not easily adjustable due to this.
Here's some pics of the mountings, and the lack of space for the belts and handbrake cables.

Can you use a go kart type Tillett seat (or equivalent) in a fury or would it not offer enough support?
