Default Corbeau Forza Dilemma

Recently picked up a '94 R package. The PO installed Corbeau Forzas but b/c broom stick test, bolted them to the floor. He's taller than I am so the driving position is difficult being that it's too low and too far back.

I looked around and saw that Corbeau sells brackets for the miata (Corbeau Seat Accessories - Mounting Brackets - MiataRoadster - High-performance customer service...and parts for Roadsters), but in similar threads people ended up sitting too high.

Im about 5' 9.5" tall. Should I get the bracket and call it a day and actually get to adjust my seat, or should I drill more holes in my floor board and move the seat up? The car will be used for daily/autocross/hpde.

You're not too tall to use a bracket, so take advantage of that and get some adjustability.

I use a forza on their slider and I occasionally hit the hardtop with my helmet. I'm 5'9". YMMV.

I am currently running Forzas with kazspec brackets. I'm 5'9" and pass broomstick test with helmet on.
