Hi
Suspension seats would be fantastic,but the budget was already murdered!!
I am running a Mercry trophy plus prop and we managed 71.2 mph so far. I think there is a bit more to go yet..

How do you like the seats? Have you tried the other option like mine? http://rib.net/forum/attachment.php?...8&d=1218666206 And again how many RPM at full speed?

Hi Patos
I love the seats, they are very supportive and comfortable.
If Ullman seats weren't so expensive, they would have been my first choice. The bolster seats on your Cougar are very nice but i need at least 4 seats behind the console hence the jockeys. I am not sure of max rpm yet as the weather hasn't been perfect for testing. I will be out at the weekend, and will get some pix for you.

What do you think of the new Cougar Cabin ribs?
Tony
