No. It's in their "street" line. It's very much like their Evo but with additional scuff resistance on the sides and a bottom mount (vs. side mount).

Come to think of it, the Evo doesn't have a crotch passthru either... :?

Evo II does. That the seat in our LeMons Sentra SE-R.

Lift the thigh padding to find the pass-thru. It's attached with Velcro (tm).

Nope. Just checked - it's not on the Fighter.

Chris,

The photos on your Flickr stream are certainly helpful. Thanks. What type of material and what thickness did you use for your fabricated seatbelt-buckle mount?

Thanks again.

The straps were 2" wide, 14 gauge (about 2mm).

Chris,

Thanks for the information.

I noticed that the seat rails I ordered from Brian came with an extra small, loose plate. I assume, since there is just one, that it is somehow related to mounting the passenger-side seatbelt at the bottom, since, in stock form, that end of the belt attaches to the passenger seat. Is that correct, or is it intended for another purpose? Should I have received two of them?

Thanks again.

Sounds like something else got left in the box....the rails....are just the rails as pictured on the website. Perhaps you should email me a pic of this other plate in the box.

Hey all,

I have the NC seat brackets from the site here and can't figure out how they're pre-drilled for the Sparco sliders -- I think I'm missing something. I have a Sparco Pro 2000 seat (so it has both the bottom and side mounting options), and when I bolt the sliders directly onto the seat, they don't come close to matching up to the seat bracket.

What is meant by the "pre-drilled for Sparco Sliders" feature-- the bottom hole locations on Sparco seats seems to be the same across the line of bottom-mounting seats, so I know that's not the problem. I also tried using the side mounts (and then attach the sliders to those) to see where the holes would line up, but they also seemed to be off by quite a bit.

What am I doing wrong and I apologize if I'm missing something obvious!

You bolt the sliders to the rail, and your seat to side mounts....
