I agree with sfreitas20. I mounted the seat belts to force him "straight up". My driver cannot lean left/out at all....and we are the minority in that regard.

The price I got on the LaJoie full containment seat was $1200. You can buy lots of good seats for $200 to $600 but the instalations I have seen make it impossible to get the kid out quickly or without cutting the cage if there is a problem (in a QM). You can set a kid up in the car just as well without a seat and if you want the shoulder, rib, head containment they can be bolted to the firewall / seat back. Big difference, by the way, depending on kid size, dirt or asphault, where you want the C of G and RC.

Our seat for Joie of Seating was $575, but keep in mind your second seat is almost free.  If you child grows out of the first seat and you need a new one, you have what you paid originally as credit with them towards the new seat.  For example, in two years if we need a new seat and the price is up to $625 then, we send the old seat and $50 for the new seat.

Hope that helps.  Call Tammie Smith at the Joie of Seating and she will go over all that with you.

We had originally looked at a Kirkey Seat, but after talking with our Novice/Rookie trainer he commented on how skinny our son was and how he might be better with a custom seat so he wouldn't bounce around inside a standard seat.  That lead us to Joie of Seating.  In the end we spent a little more than double what we expected on a seat, but when we trade up that will offset it.  When AJ rolled his car a few weeks ago, the Joie of Seating seat proved to be worth every penny!

I agree Scott. That Lajoie seat is more the first cost but after you upgrade it will be worth it.I have a Lajoie seat in Lauren 600 and it's the best seat out.
