I've read many a topics and build blogs on fitting tilletts, but wondering if mine can be lowered more than they are.
I've a S3 metric chassis with tilletts fitted. I'm 6 feet 1 with comparatively short legs (32" inside leg) and a longer torso. I fit perfectly leg wise, but my head is way up near the top of my trackday roll bar.
Upon inspecting under my driver's seat, I have adjustable runners fitted on top of the sold box section pieces I thought were only used for the passenger seat. This set up raising the driver's seat some 15mm or so more than if just the runners we're used. This however could be the correct set up and I'm after guidance as to whether I could remove the sliders and just solidly mount the driver's seat? The passenger seat, which is solidly mounted sits at exactly the same point rewards as my driver's seat when adjusted for my driving position. This makes me think solidly mounting the driver's seat will provide me the perfect driving position, without the headache of trying to mount the sliders which seems a well documented trial of endurance for all on forums. I'm the only driver, so solidly mounting bothers me not.
I've also bought a genuine Tillett spacer kit to raise the front and recline the seat to give even more head room.
