My height is 5-8. My ego is 6-8.

I like to position the seat as far back as possible on the rails, but also as upright on the vertical axis. That being said, sometimes I do wish the horizontal rails had one extra notch for improving legroom.

Obvious question: can the rails and/or the sliders be modified to lock in place a bit farther back, while retaining all safety measures?

6'2", about 230 lbs currently (normally more like 200, long story). Size 14 boots. I fit just fine into my '92 with no modifications. Seat, steering wheel, etc. are all stock. The top of the windshield frame does occasionally obscure my view of traffic lights, but I just look over it.

My only complaint is that the cuff of my left pant leg does occasionally hang on the hood release handle. Seriously, that's it.

I think the top of the windshield obscures traffic lights for lots of people. I personally am 5'8 330 lbs and it depends where the traffic light is positioned in relation to the "stop line".

virginia traffic lights are on the wrong side of the intersection from what I've experienced. I cant see the **** in most cars. often it's easier to look OVER the frame.

6'1" not skinny, not fat. i feel like the car is made for me. my womans father is 6'5" and he fit in my car about as comfortably as i do. i also have no problem as far as my roll bar is concerned.

traffic lights can be a slight issue...i still have my sun visors installed with no plan on removing them.

i'm consiering gutting the seat mostly because i'm currently out of parts to throw on the car and i'm pretty bored at the moment. i also want to get some non arm rest door cards, but they really aren't needed in my case. they'd just be the kind of thing i'd pick up if i stumbled across them.

6ft with a bruce lee build and I fit like a glove. There's times where I wish I could have some room to stretch, but usually I'm too busy enjoying the car to care.

My nephew is about 300lbs and if I had to guess maybe 6'5", that son of a bitch loved the ride but stuck out like a gorilla. He seriously had his line of sight right at the windshield frame. Not to mention the entire car leaned to his side. It was pretty funny to take him around in it.

5'8", 142 pounds or so. I run a Sparco Fighter w/Sparco sliders on custom rails. Seat is pretty tall. Planning on running the TDR ultrashields at some point this year.

5'4" on a good day, stocky but not fat. Needless to say, I have no issues fitting into these cars, though for some reason I do prefer seats with most of the foam removed. I must look like a 6-year-old when I'm driving...

I'm 5'11" 160lbs and I fit pretty well. I like to sit kind of close up to everything and I don't like reaching so, my seat is always a knotch or 2 from the furthest back with the seat leaned back a little. I feel a little big in the car, but It fits me fine. I'd say the only car that seems to fit me better is an S2000. Regardless, I love the fit in a miata, I like cars to put you in a cockpit kind of feel and you certainly get that in a miata.
