In drag racing, things can turn bad quickly. Whether you drive a 135 MPH bracket car or a 275 MPH Outlaw Pro Mod, it is important to take every precaution available to ensure the best possible outcome for your safety in the event of an accident.
The driver’s seat is one of the most overlooked components in a race car. In actuality, it is one of the most critical. A seat is not just a place to sit; it should also act as a safety device by keeping a driver positioned securely and absorbing outside energy during a crash.
Making sure that your seat is mounted correctly and that you have the correct equipment installed with it can mean the difference between walking away from a high-seed, high energy crash or ending up in the hospital with severe back injuries from a mild crash with a seat that does not provide adequate support.
In this video, Tim McAmis demonstrates the differences between different types of composite drag racing seat s and outlines necessary steps to take during seat selection, installation and use.
