Where can I buy Racing Seats / harnesses for Focus?

I need another seat that complies with SCCA/RA pro/club Rally for my 2000 zx3 that i'm building up.

I can't seem to find a decent online store for focuses that sell what I'm looking for.

Also, do any online stores sell fuel cells?

www.focusperformance.com has a selection of seats. (same place you bought the car from)
www.focussport.com also has a good selection of seats.

I've bought my G-Force harnesses from www.discoveryparts.com . Good guys, and lots of safety gear. Also sells racing seats.

As for fuel cells, I guess they are generic, so you can purchase them anywhere online.

Here are the major seat players: Corbeau, Cobra, Sparco, and Momo. There are many others but these companies make REAL race seats. Double check the new rules. They were talking a while back that a seat was going to have to be FIA approved. The above manufactures provide such seats other companies rarely do. Remember you want a solid seat back (non-reclining regardless of who makes it). A steel frame seat tends to be more comfortable than a fiberglass shell for rallying and a little cheaper as well. I found the following to be very comfortable and affordable. Sparco Sprint, Corbeau Forza, Momo T-Frame, and Cobra Monaco. Buy your seats from a race shop that does on-line sales. Simply do a search on any of these brands and you will get lots of hits. You'll also want to get seat rails & sliders. Corbeau makes the biggest selection, but the others should be able to cover you as well. Good harness prices are available from Racers Wholesale. G-Force makes some affordable cam lock harnesses. New rules also talked about requiring new harnesses or rewebbing every two years if the belts did not have a FIA label. You might want to check this out. If you're on a budget, a latch and link five point harness works just as well as a cam lock and costs half as much. Check the ads in Grassroots Motorsports magazine for safety equipment. ATL and Fuel Safe are the big cell manufactures but Jegs, Jazz, and Summit Racing provide generic brands that are just as good for less money.

We have Jegs in ohio maybe you have them up there too. They have seats in the store so you can get in them and try them out. Not to knock it but I would not buy one with out sitting it it. You may have to go to the closest large city to find a big time perfomance shop but I would try to find one around where you live first then go with the internet thing. Just my opinion but I have been in my Jegs down the road and I saw they had seats in the store so I thought I would point that out to you.

No, I mean retail stores with decent selection.

Looks like most are based out of Ohio.

[]wave, If you're really serious about rallying you need to get up to Atlanta (just east of Gaylord) on Jan 28 and 29th. This will be the first major rally of 2005. There will be a lot of michigan based cars there and it would be a good event to start rubbing elbows at. I would suggest that you volunteer as an event worker or put the word out that you would like to work service for a team. There's always someone looking for help. This would be a good opportunity to sit in some cars and get the feel of seats. All you havbe to do is ask, Ihave never been refused from sitting in a car especially if I was working the event. Drivers and co-drivers treat event workers pretty damn nice as they know without them the event wouldn't be happening. The seats i mentioned above seem to fit the majority of drivers and co-drivers. Unless you're really large these should work without much gambling. Of the four the sparco sprint and corbeau forza are the common in rally cars. They're very comfortable and fit 99% of most people. But i do agree with sidney61199 that sitting in a seat before purchasing it is the safest bet.
