So, I recently saw http://www.needforseatusa.com/ in my Facebook news feed. I know that $3-500 is a lot for a chair, but these look quite bad ass. You can also upgrade the lower portion, for a substantial price. I can't justify this much, but maybe down the road. They look like a great mix of office chair and automotive racing seats. Opinions?

Racing seats are super uncomfortable! I wouldn't want to use one as a office chair.

I beg to differ! Other than aluminum seats with a padded cover many racing seats are extremely comfy!
Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

Here is my office chair at work. 



2008 Subaru wrx premium seat driver side :evilgrin:  have the passenger side downstairs waiting to be made into another chair.    


The owner of the company sat in it a few weeks ago and asked where he could buy one.  I told him I made it and he couldn't believe it,  then turned around and asked how much it would charge to make him one.
