Are the Kirkey aluminum seats lighter than the plastic drag race seats? I'm thinking of replacing the plastic racing seat (Jaz type) in my car with a Kirkey aluminum drag racing seat. I'm trying to reduce car weight.

I believe I read on here that the plastics are lighter but ppl feel safer with the aluminum. Not a enormous difference though in weight.

The best I can rem is the 18" Kirkey's are about 3-4 lbs lighter than the plastic ones both with the covers on. If you run a pass seat you can get about 4lbs out of it if you take the tme with a hole saw. lol
