I have put a 10 point cage into my 88 mustang GT. I have the heavy factory seats in there. I want to put comfortable aftermarket seats in but it says in the rule book (NHRA) that you have to have the seat bolted to the cage... How do you guys bolt them in or what do you do? I don't want an aluminum one in there I want a nice light seat though. Comfortable is very important.

Small tube coming off the cage with a flat plate on the back of the seat with a couple bolts going through the seats fastened to the plate!

Got any pictures? I also think alot seem to get away with this. Maybe if its like a stock seat you don't need it?

i saw one setup where a bar went across the floor to each side of the cage, and the seat bolted to that, then the back of the seat bolted to the back bar

Corbeau Has some great lightweight racing seats that look great in Mustangs. http://www.corbeau.com/products/fixed_back_seats/clubman/ <== Just one example.

They also sell floor brackets to fit several applications.

This is what I've used for seat back roll bar attcahment. nice kit.

Thank you.... I have a piece that goes from through the floor subframes to underneath the seat and the subframes are welded to the cage so I would say that is part of it. But would it be legal I don't know...

I think it says the seat BACK must be secured/supported to the cage, not the seat mount. I could be wrong though.

Most of the weight on a factory seat comes trom the mount and adjuster. I saver about 50lbs when I took them off and welded up some new light weight mounts that are non adjustable.
