    my kart seat recently just broke.. went to the tillett website and there are so many options.! planning on buying 3 (different stiffness ones) but i have no idea which one is the best to buy. which one should i get? im leaning onto the t11 seats. im racing a senior rotax, weigh 165 lbs, 5’7″, and using a 30/32mm chassis.

    T11 is a great all-around choice that’s very popular.

    Unless you have rib problems, I would suggest going with a standard seat. The Ribtect felt very stiff when I was using it.

    I use to have a Tillet seat now I have a permanent back problem. Nagging scar tissue where the rib meets the back bone. Do the math, 5 turns 10 laps 5 track sessions 15 races a season that’s 3,750 punches to one rib. Hope the tillet fits you better than it fit me.
