Default How tall is everyone?

Hopefully i dont get too much backlash for this question. I did a search and didnt find anything. So like the title says....How tall is everyone? Im 6'4 and i have concerns about fitting into this car. Anyone around my height on here?

Miata's have a good bit of room in them considering their size. I can't lend any real personal experience though, you've got a good half a foot on me.

6'3", ultrashield bolted directly to the floor with rear floor humps cut out. My helmeted head is 1.5 or so inches under the bar.

this is an m.net question, that gets asked there once a week. There should be a huge combined thread. I think most here are around 6'

There's a bunch of stuff you can do about your physical deformity (being tall). Look up some post by SamNavy. He's a big boy and fits just fine with the seat mods such as seat foam removal and bolting seats lower.

6 2, mostly leg. Fit fine in the miata, but would like to get a little lower. Haven't done any foamectomy or otherwise. Head still close to the rollbar.

I'm 6' and I fit fine. Some days I wish the seat would go back one more notch, and I don't fit with an autocross helmet on and the top up, but 99% of the time it's just right.

5' 8" here and it feels like the car was made for someone my height. Perfect car.

6'1", skinny as ****. If I sit bolt upright I can touch the top with my head. Really my only complaint is that the rearview mirror is right at eye level and blocks a lot of the forward view to the right. Also, sometimes I have to lean forward to see stoplights.

6', fit fine but in the annoying zone of either having to look over the top of the windshield at traffic lights or leaning way the hell over if I have the top up.
