Anyone have experience with JIC race seats?

I know of a shop going out of business and is heavily discounting all of their stock. They have a set of JIC race seats that I really like. Anyone own a pair or have any experience with them?

Only seat I will use is Racetech. JIC sounds like a chinese private label copy of a Sparco/MOMO/Bride/corbeau/etc. I would not trust this seat under any circumstance or for any price. Buy a Race seat that may save your life not one that may get you killed.

Check and see if they are FIA certified for competition use. There should be a certification sticker w/ the FIA rule/reg number on it on the seat.

they maybe some "respected" brand for street wanabees but they are not a well known brand of seat that any race team would use in competition. I would not use any of the other seat brands I mentioned except Racetech. Use these products at your own risk. I know what happens when a seat fails on the race track.
