How tall are you guys?

I have problems fitting inside the car...

I sat in the SS and with the seat to the floor and all the way back, my head was pushing up against the roof.

Being 6'5" this was pretty uncomfortable, when I say pushing against the roof I dont mean rubbing slightly, I mean my neck was tilted sideways as I couldn't straighten myself out and sit up straight.

Are the seats for the ZL1 perhaps different to accommodate for this issue?

How tall are you guys? Anyone up there height wise? If so, how is it working for you?

I am 6' 2" and no problems. I know another member who is the same height as you and as far as I know he doesn't have any problems. I would suggest sitting in a car without a sunroof, they have a little bit more room.

I can definitely see where it would be an issue for you. Not much difference in the Z except they are a bit more comfortable. I'm 6.0 and it's close, but where I put a helmet on at the track I slide the seat forward and have to tilt the seat back.

Wish I had more to help, besides lay the seat back. I know there are tall folks who say they don't have a problem at all, but I guarantee you if I was 6.5 I would have a big problem.

SS and ZL1 = same height

Almost 6 feet, helmet rubs against the roof, but thats the cost of having a sunroof on the ZL1

6ft 3" and no issues

Depends where your height is though - mines all in my legs.

Only way for you to know is to sit in one

6' 3" 265 long torso. My head touches the top in a normal driving position. I do tilt the seat back to drive. I'm in the process of replacing the seat with a Carbou I purchesed a couple of months ago along with harness bar and harnesses for track days. There is no way I could wear a helmet in this car as is.

6' 4" here. No problems with the top up (and down of course). Gotta love unlimited headroom.

My Bro-in-law also 6'4" and fits w/sunroof with ~2 inches to spare but helmet would not work. He has very long legs, so your torso length will decide.

6' 1 (with sun roof). Okay without a helmet. With a helmet, I have to lean the seat so far back, that it makes shifting gears difficult.
