racing seat durability
« on: November 02, 2003, 08:35:10 PM »
guys, anong brand ba ng racing seat ang hindi kumukupas?
i've tried sparcos. kumukupas din. and ung mga recaro srd's from ITR and CTR kumukupas din.

especially ung mga sides and corners nung seat, dun nag uumpisa ung kupas.

Anything made out of fabric will fade, because fabric.. by nature, fades. If you want fade proof material, try re trimming in leather (but it cracks, creases, and eventually fades too). You can try neoprene, but that is quite slippery and hot.

RECARO has a high-wear resistance fabric they use on aftermarket seats. Parang dimpled plastic siya. This is pretty good. Downside though is that the edges of the seat are in suede naman, very high wear. :(

I think you can order the fire-proof upholstery (race spec) material from RECARO via Excellar. I know these do not wear at all but they are very expensive.

material is called Alcantara and is getting pretty popular....
Recaro SRD seats are known for quality problems. i would stay away or skip the SRD's altogether and consider other Recaro models.

What is it that you do to the seats that they fade so fast? I mean if you sit on them normally, I don't see any problem with durability of the seats.

That's weird, we haven;t heard that one yet elsewhere.

A friend who distributes RECARO told me that RECARO's sold in the US are assembled there. RECARO's sold in Japan are really made in Japan (everything is sourced in Japan). RECARO's sold in Asia are assembled in Malaysia, and the ones in Europe are made in Germany.

Pero for some weird reason, the RECARO's here in the Philippines come straight from Germany.
