Default C6 Replacement Seats

I have a 2008 C6 Z51 packated Vet...has anyone replaced their C6 sports seats with a Misano seat? If so, how do you like them? I'm 6'3" and about 260 lbs, so normal race seats don't fit me very comfortably. I like my corvette seats alright, but as we all know, they don't provide much lateral support when hitting the curves pretty hard. Any other seats out there that might work? Thanks...

Never heard of Misano, maybe someone else will chime.

Depending on your torso length, at 6'3", headroom with a helmet might be an issue.

But if your waist is over 38", I think any replacement seats (with bolsters for good lateral support) might be uncomfortably tight. I strongly urge you to test-sit a seat before buying.

Anyway, definitely do your homework before buying seats. Lots of threads on this topic, like this: http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c6-t...seats-fit.html

For racing, search the Autocross & Roadracing forum:

And have a look in the Tech & Perf forum.
