I know many of you have been at this crossroads, so I figured I would throw it out there and see what those more experienced have to say.
I am going with an aluminum seat, primarily for the affordability. The question is should I go with the Kirkey Intermediate Road Race seat or The Ultrashield Pro Road Race seat. I have only used Kirkey's during my circle track days, but I'm not partial them. The cost is about the same on both. Which is the better choice?

The construction is very similar. I think my USRP is very comfortable but I haven't tried the Kirkey. I think the Kirkey only comes with a single sub belt hole. The USRP comes with 3 holes for a 5 or 6 pt belt. If price is your main driver, the Kirkey is dirt cheap at Jegs. I might get one for occasionally cramming passengers in a RH seat.

I've made a decision to go with the USRP seat. Lot's of guys seem to use them with only positive feedback. Plus they seem to mount well and look good in the car. The Kirkey is cheap but you have to buy the cover separate.
