The BC rails will allow the seats to sit on the floor. They are really really adjustable. I would say at least a 2" drop from OEM height, maybe closer to 3". I'm 6'4" and have the bottom back of the seats sliding on the carpet.

to the sparco rev guy... are you sure that seat fits in the s2000?
6'5 HERE. WOULD LOVE TO SEE A PIC IF YOU HAVE ONE. YOU SAY IT DROPPED THE SITTING POSITION ALMOST THREE INCHES?

SORRY FOR CAPS

Thanks for the install help.

I did the same thing with the drilling...just a little closer to the edge to make the belt buckle more angled.

As more mounting, I Just mounted everything on the seat and measured the holes to match up. Everything went in fine, and slides (but its not as smooth as stock).

I have a carbon fiber SPG replica, and I cant imagine anything bigger fitting. I have the seat back almost all the way (6 foot tall), and the side wings JUST touch the door trim/ storage door.

This is a great thread. Does anyone have any pictures of the install other than the drilling (which is a huge tip)?

It's nice to hear that some of you claim around 2 inches drop in seating position, but what about the leg room?
Would you say you can stretch your legs a bit more and does it help to get your legs a bit further away from the steering wheel?

I'm looking to buy an AP1 but I would sure need to sit lower and get some more clearance between legs and the steering wheel.

Yes it does. With the stock seat my knees hit the wheel and are bent - terrible position. With these seats and rails I can easily clear the wheel with my knees and stretch my leg.

I can't believe Honda didn't allow the S2000 to come with some form of steering column adjustibility.
