RCI or similar feedback ??

Are the RCI seats suitable for a daily driver?? Have folks found the lack of back adjustment a problem? I'm considering future projects.... Thanks.....

Crow, I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable both the RCI and Summit racing seats are. I'm definitely going to put some in mine. The seating position is very ergonomic.

Crow, I got them because of the way they hold you in the seat not on it. They have lumbar support and I too was surprised how comfortable they are. If the padding isn't enough I'm sure you could just slip some foam under the pad. Jim

Re: RCI or similar feedback ??

In the past I had regularly driven a car with them and found them comfortable even without the covers. I think they would be great in an off-raod vehicle because the RCI seats have lots of side suport to hold you in place. I will be installing them in my Samurai and coating my tub with Herculiner so I can go the entire summer topless. If it does rain, just pull the floor plugs, towel off the seat and windshield and off I go. We only get rain a couple times during the summer in Maryland so I think it will work out great. I might get a color other than black so I don't blister my legs while wearing shorts.

I was thinking about the headrests in front and low backs in the rear. Since my kids are under 10 the low backs are tall enough to give head support and with the lower seats in back it won't obstruct too much of my rear vision.
