Default lookign for bolsters

Does anyone know of a good place for bolsters? I want the racing kind with the full wrap around. I figure if i am going to spend a ton of loot anyway why not go all the way. Besides it would be nice to have some extra padding if i run in a P class.

who has good prices on them? I called one guy and his prices seemed pretty good $2200 for a pair, brand new with powder coated stands. I also need to do my rear bench.

I got mine from Twin Marine. Had to make some adjustments to make comfortable. Felt like you were leaning forward, and seat was not out far enough. This is what I did.

Just a thought but since they don't know how to spell BOLSTER and they use aluminum framing I would think long and hard, especially if you plan on doing a little "P" class water this year.

yeah i was kind of thinking that. But then again i can't spell either...

is the aluminium really a problem? stainless is stronger but if i am crashing hard enough to bend the aluminum stands i think i would have bigger problems....

or is the aluminium really that weak?

Aluminum is softer so it will flex more. I would also be worried about it taking a "set" after some hard use. I'm sure it could be strong enough if large enough but if they cut costs in the frames-where else do they cut costs??

As for spelling- you spell like crap because you type a lot and fast. I would hope that if you or anyone is building a website-their link to the entire buying public-that they would have their spelling and grammar proofread by someone before posting to the world
