The best way to build seat mounts is to weld the seat mounting frame to the cage instead of the floor. If a severe crash distorts the car, the seat will move with the cage making it less likely that the harnesses will come loose or too tight crushing the driver. The seat also has a better chance of moving with the chassis as it bends making it less likely that the driver will get smashed. Blunt force trauma is a bitch.
Now that a lot of the tube fabrication has been completed, stay tuned, in the next segment of Time Attack Toyota 86 we will start working on the many other parts of the chassis. There are some fantastic things coming with this build that we can’t wait to see!
