Hey yall, seeing if anyone is interested in wanting some evo 8/9 brackets that bolt onto the evo 8/9 sliders and bolt right into our galant vr4, I got tired of waiting and trying to find some for sale so I have a good friend that does a lot of R&D and I gave him the idea and depending on any interest he will go ahead and make these and no long wait time


The fixed bucket seat is just for reference and we're working on the prototype and optimizing the bracket rigidity. Pricing has not been set yet


let me know if you have any question so I can let him know and how much of a interest there is out there for this so we can get the ball rolling on these just trying to help out the fellow gvr4 community

Yes a lot of R&D will go into this as he has my car at the moment doing all the fittings etc and they will be priced very nicely.

In the component parts picture, are some of those parts being reused from the evo seat tracks, or did he make them all? Looks like some stampings there.

The stampings are the factory brackets. The outside brackets are what was made.

I'm assuming Curtis is putting these through testing or examining your testing results? What's the status on that?

Well biggest problem that might come about is over half the evo seats sold don't have factory brackets. Few years back I went to an import allience show and a vendor had like 50 sets of evo seats from evo 2's and up and most only had sliders so people shopping for seats make damn sure every thing comes with what you buy because I have a feeling mitsubishi don't sell just the little brackets.

... ^^^ that's clear as mud



What material is being used?



Like to see some pics (please)

... close up of the bend radius on the tightest bend

... bottom of seat with brackets attached

... shot from behind the drivers seat showing it's relative position to the steering wheel.
(vr4 seats are very assymetrical and some of the brackets leave the driver off center)


thanks!



the bitterness of low quality remains long after the temporary joy of a low price has faded
