I am looking for a fixed back bucket seat for track days.
Read alot and are very confusing, all seats are advertised as "universal" fitment, fit all cars.

But different cars need different mounting bracket. I am looking at the Cobra Race Pro http://cobra.subesports.com/products/cat/seats/brand/Cobra/prodID/1987

So the questions are
1)what kind of bracket should i get?
2)can i adjust the height with those mounting brackets?

thanks

Wedge Engineering makes brackets. You'll need to tell them the measurements of the side mount holes. I wouldn't recommend a bottom mount for racing, it may place the seat up higher than the oem position and I don't think there's any height adjustment possible with fixed back buckets.

I used bride type FG seat rails in the past and they worked great and I have another set ordered for my spyder, should be coming in 1-2 weeks. The dimensions are on the bride website and you compare them to the dimensions of your seat to see if they will fit. These are side mount brackets which allow your seat to sit very low (if you choose) and you can adjust the height/rake of the seat.

You can also make your own brackets which sounds alot harder than it actually is, here is the design I would copy:

There are several other custom seat bracket threads you can look at by searching.

Sparco, MOMO, and Corbeau bottom mount brackets and rails are made by the same company. So if you decide to go for these find the cheapest price via google. For custom mounts Wedge is a great starting point. Bride makes great brackets as well but are more pricey. Recaro makes a version as well but are hard to find.
