    There was a forum member who was 6'9" and 350pds who drove a Caterham SV (until he sold it). The issue was the height of the roll cage but that was a easy fix.

    Size is not an issue!

    How "sevenish" does it have to be? The Panoz Roadster from a decade ago is Mustang-size inside.

    Just a quick follow up - my friend bought Powerbrake's Ultralite and it looks like it fits him pretty well with a few tweaks.

    Thanks all for the input and advice.

    A few years ago I was determined to sell my classic stalker and had an S1 in Columbus that I was ready to pull the trigger on....until I drove it...loved the car but the seats were narrower than my stalker...regretably ended up passing on that one...

    My Rotus is rather LARGE in the cockpit. A friend of mine who is 6'1", 275# with a 34" inseam fit fine. I made him sit in it because he swore that there was no possible way he would fit. now he wont stop bugging me about getting it done so he can drive it. He has size 11 shoes but when he was at the shop, he was wearing work boots and obviously had to remove them, so was in his stocking feet. Would more than likely need sneakers to manipulate the pedals, but that's nothing new in any 7.

    I have a s1 and a rotus chassis. the s1 accommodates my 36" waist at the butt but any more would be tight. the rotus seats are too cramped and the foot well way too small for my 13s. the s1 is doable with "barefoot" shoes. But no "heel and toe" for me so it is just toe.

    Strange? Tim has a 42-44 waist, he's a big guy, and fit in mine. I'll measure the width today and post a measurement.
