The Corvette was equipped from the factory with many great things - seats are not one of those things. Those who have added a proper racing seat to their Corvette often say it's the most important mod they've done to increase their track-day enjoyment. However, a proper racing seat shouldn't be installed with the factory hardware. A real racing seat should be mounted from the side on fixed mounts. Headroom is generally a concern with any racing seat in a Corvette, but AMT has effectively eliminated that concern with our Ultralow Seat Mount.
Many hours of development were spent making our Ultralow mount the best available for the Corvette. The only way to get your seat lower in the car would be to cut a hole in it. The bottom of the seat can literally touch the floor in your Corvette. We've achieved this by machining a perfect hex in the mounts to accept the mounting bolts for the side brackets. A flat head screw would allow the same clearance, but by machining the hex into the aluminum we also remove an extra wrench (and a whole lot of headache) from the install process.
The mounts are fully machined from 6061-T6 extruded aluminum angle and flat plate for the brackets. Rather than allowing the side brackets to only sit on bolts, we machine the brackets so there is a perfect mechanical interface with the bottom and side of the floor mounts. This increases stiffness and strength - two things of great importance in a seat mount. Included with every mount are studs and hardware to allow the mount to be bolted using the factory Corvette seat studs.
Finally we offer an optional, integral, movable cross bar to accept 5 and 6 point sub-belts. Two eye-bolts are included with the sub bar. The sub bar is bolted to the floor mounts with flat head screws, and there are 2 more holes in the cross bar to allow you to bolt the bar right thru the floor, should your sanctioning body require it. We do not recommend using a different sub-belt bar with our mount since you'll need to modify either the mount or the sub-belt bar to get it to fit. If you're ordering this mount without a sub-belt bar, then you should just be mounting your eyebolts right through the floor.
As with everything we make, these mounts are proudly 100% Made in the USA.
