Mazda RX8 bucket seat guide

Mazda RX8 Bucket Seat Guide

The RX8 story...

The Mazda RX8, (2003-2012), has become one of the most popular track cars we work with. Once you start using your Mazda RX8 for fast road and track use, you’ll soon realize just how much you need new bucket seats to provide more support. 

On cornering, you may find your self holding onto the steering wheel tighter than usual, tensing your thighs and legs against the central console and/or door card. You’ll probably find your weight shifting in the seat and having to re-position your self after the corner. 

None of this is correct. Your seat should provide the right level of support so that you can grip the steering wheel only for steering, your legs should be supported and your weight shouldn’t shift around. The recommendations we provide are to ensure that you feel comfortable and supported allowing you to focus on the job at hand. 

We’ve worked closely with our customers to create our Mazda RX8 guide.
The resulting recommendations are based on previous customer car installations.
