I'm prety sure it's all preferance with dirt,street, and park. But with racing the small would probably be used most common.

The SL would be the one used for racing.

If you like the feel of a normal seat, get the Capital. If you want to copy everything that Garret Byrnes/Ruben Alcantara/Kevin Porter/Sergio Layos does and get a GT Dropnose/Shadow Slim/racing-type seat, get the SL.
