Racetech seat mounting options?

Asked by Feb 15, 2010 at 01:52 AM about the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Question type: Car Customization

I'm wondering if anyone here has installed Racetech seats (specifically RT-4009w) as part of a track build on their Evo 8 or 9? I'm putting a cage in and harnesses, and I'm wondering what options others have used when mounting Racetech fixed-back seats.  I'm not aware of any floor brackets for this seat brand.

And please don't suggest another seat - I went and tried out seats from Cobra, Recaro, and Racetech, and this seat is amazing in its comfort, fit, and reasonable cost. :)

Hi Eric, Try giving Synaptic 3 Engineering a call. However if needed, you can call us anytime for seat dimensions to compare with the inside of your car. We do not make a specific seat mount for the evo's, but all Racetech seats are available with matching FIA 5mm aluminum side mount brackets. Please let us know if we can be of more help.

Hi Alex, Thanks for your response. I'm planning on getting the RT brackets, but was hoping to find something as slick as the VAC Motorsport floor adaptors (http://store.nexternal.com/vacmotors/vac---custom-floor-mount-adapters-available-for-almost-any-car-p1811.aspx), but for an Evo. VAC is willing to custom make them, but need to measure, and since they're in Philadelphia and I'm in Albany NY, it'll take a bit of effort to make that happen.
