Default Student Develops Racy Carbon Fiber Child Seat for Sparco






Quote:
Here's how to develop a Felipe Massa or Lewis Hamilton as early as possible. Student Rory Craig has developed a carbon fiber child seat as a prototype to try and sell to Sparco, the brand known for such products. It is race-inspired, as you can imagine, for those parents who like their children to also have a race-feel when being driven in something posh and fast.

While I agree that the seat is pretty cool, I currently own 8 different cars seats/booster seats for my two kids and combined they probably cost less than two of those seats. If it costs too-much it will not be worth it. I'll get a Recaro sticker and place it on my existing seat. That cash would be better served for mods. But it is a really nice seat.

Your reading comprehension must be pretty weak. I have 8 other child car seats for my kids that are perfectly safe. Why would I buy an overpriced racing seat for my child when I don't race with them in the car.

I guess you assume that this car seat is safer than the 8 I already have. It is a waste of money, but it is a nice seat.
