When you're going for this level of safety, don't you want to add the antisubmarine straps?

I swear I looked.  Really.

 

What I see look like stock or stock-ish seats.  I can't see where the straps come through the seats, so I thought it was worth asking?

 

Are those stock seats with a pull through for the six points, or special seats that just look similar to the stockers?

I see..

 

So no, the stock seats are not cut.  The straps wrap around the front of the seat and connect to a point welded to the floor under the seat.  Not ideal, but allowed by NHRA rules when using stock seats.  Being a big and tall guy, it isn't that far off for me either.

You seem like the kind of person I'd like to keep safe.

You could get a relatively inexpensive racing seat and run the anti-sub straps through the crotch hole. According to the belt manufacturers, much safer in a full frontal.

Everything in the world is a trade off.  I wouldn't be comfortable in those seats, so I'm trading off a little safety for enjoyment of the car.  It is not a cost issue and has been well thought out.
