When I am sitting in my seat I cant see the front of the car and that kind of bothers me. I cant raise it up our my head will hit the roll bars. Is this a common problem that I just have to get used to? Thanks

My car is the same way it doesn't take long to get use to judging the distance in the front.

I can't even see the hood on my car, as BOZ said you get used to it. Just a word of caution, you can only use the "I couldn't tell how close I was to ya" line so many times so you may want to save that one for a later date.

when you can't see the decklid of the car in front of you anymore it's time to use the other pedal. at least that's how I do it...lol

Mines the same way. After two or so laps, it won't matter anymore, you get used to it like right now (or you do get good at saying oooppps to your fellow racers). Had to do that a couple of times. Not because I didn't know where the front end was, but because I put it where there wasn't any room anymore. Holes close up fast in the turners. Good luck, Race on.

rfb, I had the same concerns the first time I sat in my first car. Just couldn't see how it was going to work any good like that so I remounted my seat as high as I safely could. I'm 6'3" so as you might imagine I couldn't move it much and it still wasn't high enough to see anything. But like the others said, once you take the car out on the track you really don't even notice it.
