Anyone have tall rails in Austin or Houston?

I have been thinking about trying the Sector 111 tall rails but would like to sit in a seat modified with them first if possible. Is there anyone in the Austin or Houston area that has this mod and would let me sit in their car?

Thanks,
Eric

Thanks for the offer but that's a bit further than I would like to go.

I have tall rails in Dallas... but plan to be in College Station on the 26th and 27th at the TWS with NASA. Sign up and come drive. They will have HPDE, time trials and racing.

Sounds like fun but that's one of the reasons I am interested in the tall rails. I'm 6'2" and barely fit without a helmet. I know I could run without the top on but with just the factory 3 point seat belt that's a lot of travel above the top of the car I could do if something goes wrong.

Sounds like a smart move. I did a little autox before lowering the seat, but it is better to have a good fit and a requirement for the track. Everyone is shaped different, but I am a little of 6'4" and can now wear my helmet without hitting the padding in my hard top. Good luck with it.
