“Seating” issues…

I’ve got good news and bad news.

First, the good news…  I picked up another Kirkey race seat with cover and harness so we’ll have seating for a passenger for the next track day! This will be great for working on corner entry and exit as well as getting as much seat time as possible for everyone before the race.

Now, the bad news… After putting the cover back on the driver’s seat and installing the panoramic mirror, I realized my head was nearly even with the roof line of the car…  That means Lionel and Matt will probably be looking out OVER the roof to see the track.  We need to SUBSTANTIALLY lower the seat.  We can drop about an inch and a half by pulling off the seat cover, but it’s going to make it pretty hard on the “tail end” if you get my drift.

The only other thing I can think of is to pull the seat and slider and see if I can modify the floors and sliders to pull a few more inches out of it.

Anyway, everyone should probably get in the car as it stands today to get a “fitting” done.  Once we know how much off we are, we can start to hack and slash as necessary… And now I have to do it to BOTH seats… 🙁

My calendar this coming weekend is free, so it might be a good idea to get everyone in the seat before I go through the effort to modify it…
