Muscles cars are back! Not that they have ever gone anywhere, but muscle cars have made a resurgence in the consumer’s diet for fast cars on the cheap. The Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro, and Dodge Challenger are bringing back a retro look that is leading to huge sales- in 2010, Mustang sales went up 71.1%  compared to 2009 sales figures.

Both the Camaro and Mustang have made the Consumer Reports recommended buy lists putting them amongst the top 20 best selling cars in America. The Challenger, Mustang, Camaro trio are constantly tested against one another by the major car publications like Motor Trend, trying to determine which car burns the most rubber.

To put it simply, muscle cars are fun, exciting, and affordable to anybody willing to shell the bucks for a little good old fashion American power. The issue with muscle cars is the ride. The suspension and frame on some of the pony cars can give you a rough ride if you didn’t blow the big bucks on the higher end model with better suspension.

If you’re a larger individual, driving a pony car can kill your back, making it an uncomfortable ride- taking away from the muscle car experience.  Equipping the seat’s of muscle cars with the MitiGator Cushioning System can make up for the discomfort that many of us feel when driving a muscle car. The material can absorb impacts from typical vibrations that occur when driving. This can give ample support to the lower back, reducing the risk of back pain and other injuries.

The MitiGator™ Technology is an engineered cushioning system designed to protect people and equipment from these assaults and to allow them to continue to perform their jobs or enjoy their leisure time. The MitiGator™ uses patented air control technology working with over 4,000 surfaces per square foot to dissipate energy before it is transmitted to the body and thus help alleviate the problems.

Sports cars of today are getting faster and more advanced compared to previous models.  Not only are these vehicles packing more horsepower, but improved fuel efficiency. An example is the 2012 Ford Mustang whose V6 model has 305 horsepower while boasting 31 highway mpg.

Luxury brands such as Audi, Lexus, Mercedes and other auto makers are developing super sports cars that could race in Le Mans let alone drive you to work every day. With all this technology, many sports cars are still lacking proper cushioning to provide comfort and protection from the elements.

The MitiGator developed by Sea Systems Group is designed to absorb impact vibrations from external events reducing whole body impact by as much as 60%.  A number of sports cars such as the Chevy Corvette are built low to the ground. This is done in order to reduce drag while achieving maximum aero-dynamic efficiency.

The downside with this is the driver will feel almost every bump and pothole on the road. This may not be a big deal when you’re on the track. For everyday use however, it’s not only impractical, but uncomfortable to the where the occupant can get lower back pain.

The MitiGator cushioning system can reduce lower back pain while preserving a comfortable ride even at high speeds. Currently Seas Group is testing the MitiGator for stock car seats and is already used by John Gibson and Gibson racing in the Arca Racing Series.  If you have any questions or would like to place an order please click on the media link below.
