We have one for about a year now, so far so good. After 20,000 miles on the stock seat I felt I was sinking into it, not so with the Mustang.

I debated getting a Mustang seat on my 13 CCT but decided that if I was serious about big mileage I'd get the Russell Day Long. My seat is on the way to them as I type this. 2500 mile ride to Idaho this July.

If no one answers, I'll know tomorrow. I have a seat in transit.
My wife doesn't like the backrest angle of the Vic backrest, so I thought I would try the Mustang with passenger receiver. I'll take the Mustang rest and put it in the rear for her, and try to use the Vic backrest off the XCT.
Hope I like the seat since I'm pretty satisfied with the XCT heated seat (when I'm using the Airhawk R cushion)
