Project Toyota Supra Mark IV: Part 12 – Corbeau RRB seats!


While the prices listed on Corbeau's site don’t include shipping costs, they're able to ship both seats in a single box, keeping the shipping charges reasonable. Each seat is well protected in bubble wrap as well.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison of one of our outgoing CR1s on the left, versus the a new RRB on the right. The RRB sits a tiny bit lower and is also about an inch taller than the CR1.

The CR1 seat, which is part of Corbeau’s “Race Reclining” seat group, is lightweight for an adjustable, non-carbon seat, weighing in at 26-lb plus brackets. The RRBs, which are part of the “Sportline” family, are even 2-lb lighter.

The CR1s, which can fit waste sizes up to 36-in wide (40-in for the CR1 “wide” seats) retail for $800 plus shipping for a pair, while the RRBs will fit up to a 38-in waste comfortably and cost around $1040 for the pair. These prices do not include brackets, which will run roughly $145 for the pair with sliders.  Fortunately for us, we were able to reuse our old brackets and sliders, which was all the more reason to stay with the Corbeau brand.

Here is a close-up of the shoulder support. That carbon-look vinyl is pretty dark grey or black as you can see. These seats feature Corbeau’s top-of-the-line injected molded foam, which makes them super comfortable.

The back of the seats has a lot more of the carbon fiber vinyl. It's real sturdy and will protect the seats for a long time against those pesky little toddler shoes.
