thank you. i picked up an OMP seat for my 2 year old son. it was about $130 on black friday/cyber monday sale (much cheaper than under 30 lbs recaro).
unfortunately, it'll see more time in the wifey's daily since his seat just expired.

we just completed the races for 2018 with 5 left in 2019 to complete the season. i have won 5 of the 7 events in my class with 2 losses of less than 0.25 secs.
overall, i am happy with how the car is set up and my raw/pax times. the car (in it's street form) is quite capable and i enjoy racing it every event.

for anyone interested in the ezcarlift, Boytcho is the contact and website is https://www.ezcarlift.com/

i have been using it since 2012 with MY03 AP1. model XM64 with limited space kit so it can be easily moved from my garage to my carport if needed, ramp extension kit for use with MY18 FK8 and four hockey pucks since the lift points are higher than the side skirts/diffusers :D

here's a pic after it's annual service yesterday

There's a DSP class for the FK8? I thought it was just DS and STU.
