Actually no. The Pole Position is not that big, can be centered on the wheel, and using it in conjunction with rails will sit you extremely high. He will want something custom fabbed.There are no "bolt on rails" that will fit this large of a seat in a Miata. If you're 6 feet tall and are pretty big than make (or get someone to make) custom L brackets to mount the seat on the stock rails. This is the lowest you'll be able to sit without mounting it to the floor. It is also the only sure way to get such a large seat to center up to the wheel and still point straight ahead. Also, you will not be able to slide the seat forward much further than a couple inches without the right edge scraping the transmission tunnel. But if youre 6 feet tall (or close to it) this wouldn't be an issue anyways.
Now, if you're significantly less than 6 feet and don't weigh more than 170ish; pretty much if you're not overweight and on the tall side, then sell that Pole Position and get an SPG (if you want to stick with the Recaro brand.) Once again the lowest way to mount it with any rail is with the stock rails. It needs to sit pretty offset to the left to be centered with the wheel so unless you can find some left L brackets that will extend far enough under the seat to reach their mounting points than great. If not, youll gave to make custom ones.
And those brackets posted above btw wont work as they wont get the seat centered. And they def wont work with mounting it to the floor.
Compared to most other racing seats in its class, it is.Actually no. The Pole Position is not that big...
If mounted far back enough, which I mentioned was a problem if you're not 6 ft tall....can be centered on the wheel...
...and using it in conjunction with rails will sit you extremely high.
It can sit you a bit lower than stock. Which I agree, is very high if you compare it to mounting it to the floor but not compared to what you started with.This is the lowest you'll be able to sit without mounting it to the floor.
I assumed he wanted rails. Says so on his first post.He will want something custom fabbed.
Stock hardware is actually better than most of the aftermarket rails for Miatas out there. Remember they had to meet strict safety standards that even the higher end rails, such as Bride, did not have to meet. Not to say Bride rails suck, they don't, but they don't account for he majority.Friends don't let friends mount seats to stock hardware. Unless you like bugs in your teeth that is. :mrgreen:
