Default Re: seat height?

short rails... and shorter seat?
I have seen people cut the bump out under the seat and mount flat rails in the car before as well. Opens up universal rail options. Fixed seats also can be made for much more clearance vs sliding rails if you get really desperate.

You can probably adapt rails to a different seat fairly easily by welding on tabs, drilling new holes, or making a flat adapter plate underneath... if you even need to at all. Most aftermarket rails are universal and made to fit common bolt patterns.

The Buddy Club rails were on PJ's Sparco, and then my (knockoff) Bride Zieg III Lowmax's.

My codrivers are both over 6" and they fit in my S13. I'm 4'11" and fit with some padding.

I know that the "official" Rally Car build thread on NICO did some "massaging" to flatten out the floor pan and mount the driver's seat nice and low. should be in their articles section.

granted that was on an s13, but same concept.

lots of reading, I think the pics of the floor pan are about halfway through....
