Drivers Seat Height

Has anyone figured out a way to get more head room in these cars yet?

The seats in my 2SS go pretty low. I'm 6'-4" and my head is an inch or so from hitting the headliner. And my Camaro has a sunroof. You must be taller than me.

Dang, thats crazy, cant believe you guys fit.

I am 6" and did not fit on a sunroof car, my short hair was brushing up against the headliner on the seat's lowest setting!

Im sure there is a way to get it modified so that you can lower it...

I remember getting in to test drive mine and bashing my head off the roof. I was thinking "well, I don't know if this is going to work..." then I figured out how to lower the seat! I'm about 6'2 and fit just right with the seat lowered all the way.

5'11 with sunroof, my hair brushes the roof on occasion but not consistently. definitely wouldn't be able to fit with a helmet but that's why I just don't wear one at the track. It's not ideal but what are you going to do?

It would also depend on forward/back position of your seat as well as the incline of your backrest.
