This is a larger seat so you canít get as low due to the bottom sides of the seat hitting the sliders but still more headroom than stock seats. Itís super rough for me to fit with a helmet and stock seats without a lot of lean back but with this mounted fairly upright with a helmet on it fits but rubs a bit but with the pad out of the bottom of the seat the helmet doesnít rub. It also has full range of sliding forward and back.

For SCCA STX folks this seat and sliders was 28.6lbs so no need to add anything else to be legal.

What did you do with the stock seat belt receptical? Or did it work fine? Looks like I will need to bend it to be usable.

It sits outside the seat and I run the seat belt over to it, not through the lap belt hole

You can get a small extension too that can help depending on how you want to run it

With my seat, the buckle ends up pointed almost right into the seat where the cover comes over, so can't buckle into it. I will have to bend it I think, But going to try and take it off of my 2020 wrx this afternoon and see if those will work as they are a couple inches longer.

The PCI seat mount is made incredibly well and sits as low as possible. Unfortunately for me, it's still not low enough, I think I gained about 1/2 inch of headroom, my helmet stills rubs on the roof if I sit straight. The only other thing I could do is get a seat mount without sliders which might get me 1 more inch of headroom.
Any pics of how you got the Sparco side mounts, mount to the sliders? The slider bolts do not align for me, wondering if I did something wrong.

Will report back either way with results, or if I get really ambitious and take the stock plug apart and pin the resistor into it, I will put info on that.
My car came with those things from bradshacks. They were working fine. But then I pulled the race seats out, and the tips broke off when I pulled them out. Had to get them out with needle nose pliers. Not sure if they'll still work when I try to use them again.
