The new B6 Screamer is FIA approved to the 8855-1999 standard and replaces the popular B6F. Importantly, the weight is now 20% lighter than the B6F as this seat uses a new moulding system which creates lighter seats with superior strength. The belt holes are now positioned higher for taller drivers. The rear of the seat has a new design which is more compact to avoid roll bars and is better looking.
For this carbon/GRP version, the seating surface has a layer of carbon fiber for visual effect and slightly increased scratch resistance due to the material an epoxy finish. This seat is an excellent choice for track cars and generally requires running a full 5/6-point harness. It's been installed in a variety of cars including drag cars, Nissan GT-R, Honda S2000, Lotus Exige, Corvette, Porsche, etc. It's possible to run a 3-point belt if you can get the lap belt to run through the lap belt holes. The lap belt should never be run over the top of the seat.
A standard Dinamica® suede covered headrest pad is included with every seat, and padded Dinamica® cushion and back pads are available for purchase. The pads can be customized for an additional fee and requires extra lead time. With the regular width B6 Screamer, the rolled edge of the composite is uncut and results in a more aesthetically pleasing line to the edge of the seat. There is also a narrower version of the seat available where the edge is cut off, but if you have room, we recommend this uncut version of the seat.
The weight of the B6 Screamer is between 6-7 kg, depending on seat pads. All versions of the B6 Screamer series have side mounting points as standard which allows adjustment of height and angle when using our racing brackets TB F1, TB F5 and TB FIA. These fit the seats rigidly down to a flat floor giving the lowest possible driving position. The Lotus Elise/Exige specific EBF1 brackets are also usable on a dropped floor or when sited on top of runners.
