I'm not on my phone now so I can give you some more details. The first seat, I don't like the top. Crazy sh1t and it's all too busy. I'm sure it's nice to bounce your racing helmet off those things but just for DD and looks, I don't like it.

The second, poon nailed it. They are mounting your butt cheeks with butt cheeks. I don't like the way it looks at all and I don't like having creases all over my seat that sh1t can fall into and get dirty.

Also, I've never been a fan of their logo. Very small detail but the yellow logo right at the top in the eyeline of everything. Sparco isn't something I like enough to want to brag to everyone about it, so I'd prefer something more subtle unless they are sponsoring you.

Recaro's I can be proud of and I still don't want their name in bright yellow all over my sh!t.
Butt cheeks.

okay thanks for the feedback

absolutely. Just too many cheeks. Swap out the butt pad and it would look like a Recaro with an ugly logo.

as everyone mentioned they're like Butt cheeks, so imagine if two butt cheeks seat on these butt cheeks, they can make one hell of a fart noise!

That you're even considering those is peculiar.

Well, that kinda shot down that idea that I was thinking of, and I think you had mentioned before as well. Glad I wasn't the one to ask the question.
