For clarification, are spacers or anything else required to fit the Profi SPG seat with the GTS sliders and slide mounts?

Also, can the OEM non-GTS seat belt receptacle be transferred onto the GTS silders/side mount?

I'm interested in purchasing the Profi SPG, but it would be great to have OEM GTS sliders and side mounts rather than go down the Macht Schnell route.

We are almost there


Before the final assembly we pre-assembled all the engine parts 3 times. We went through multiple sets of TTY bolts just to make sure everything fits the way it should be

We did a ton of measurements to make sure clearances are corresponding with the specs.

A lot of work was done and we hope it will pay off

Aw Man, I wished I had seen the GTS Seat mounts. The Macht Schnell stuff is not so great.
