Forgive me if wrong forum but I didn't see regional forums to post this.

I've found the many helpful links about tall people not having enough headroom. So...

I was hoping someone in Arizona had an Elise or Exige with modified seat rails for more headroom. I'm having trouble convincing the wife (and myself) to buy if I don't know for sure whether the results from modifying the seat rails will give me enough room with helmet.

If anyone has one or knows of one that is modified I would greatly appreciate it if we could meet up at an upcoming track session or other car related event (though I guess track season is winding down now :mad:).

Or do you guys think it is enough to take measurements when seated in a stock model and just hope the 2 inches is enough?

Thanks
Aaron

I don't know of anyone that has lowered their seat, but how tall are you?

I think you'd be surprised how much head room there is.

Well, there was one person in your thread attachment who was 6'-4" and was able to fit with a helmet.

Why don't you go to Scottsdale Lotus with your helmet and take it for test drive?

I think they still have an Aspen White Elise with a track pack.:p
