These are very interesting!
I can found "universal" Recaro even here... but the ST205's ones would have the correct subframe... ;)

Even OMP makes ST205 subframes, as I'm using them with my Sparco...
but really don't know if they'll fit Recaro's sliding subframe...

I weighed my ST205 Recaro's at 18.5kg including the Bride subframes :shock: The OEM ST205 Recaro's mount direct via the seat rails so are lighter. BTW the carbon Recaro in the track toy is 4kg :D

Not that bad, as my Sparco Evo2 are 8kg each, plus subframes!
So I suspect the OEM Recaros to be lighter than my seats...

Yes... carbon is carbon... 8)
