Default new roadster questions

been doing a ton of searching, cannot find a few things and was wondering if anyone can answer some. cant find anything about installing bucket seats, is there any differences between the coupe and roadster like height, airbags, etc. also cant find anything about where to mount harnesses.

heard mixed answers about coilovers, some say all 350z coilovers will work on roadsters, some say they dont.

i plan to daily the car/drift it, so any advice with the car would be appreciated. coming from owning a 400hp 240sx so i have some learning to do. thanks in advance

The ZR uses powered seats to operate the retractable roof. The ZR seats are specific to that model and installing aftermarket seats will likely lead to the roof not operating. Finally, there's not much info on harness bars for the ZR because they can't be installed easily, or more importantly, safely.

The only thing i can think of that would be remotely suitable is something called a CG LOCK. A team of guys were using one when competing in the Toyota Sprint Series in the UK. It's claimed to be nearly as good as a race harness but without going to all of the effort of fitting one, especially when space is at a premium. It works by keeping the lap section of a standard belt locked tight and doesn't come loose, thus holding you tight in your seat whilst cornering hard. It's easy to fit and a lot of Roadster drivers who've encountered your problem swear by it. It was only available in the UK but chances are there is a US supplier as its been on the market now since February 2009. The company can be contacted on www.cg-lock.co.uk. From what i remember it retailed at around 55 to 60 and what with the rate of versus the $ you could get get yourself a great deal. It seems that its the safest and easiest fix for the limited space of the Roadsters.
These can be bought from Amazon
