It’s definitely softer, and not as slippery as the stock seat, which for me, sliding around was a bigger problem. If you are moving your butt around a lot like you should be at the track, the race seat might be better than the comfort seat.Thanks for info. I have the race seat and its thick but hard as a rock. I will order the comfort since it sounds like its softer and still plush. The race seat looks soft but isn't.
