New Prospective Owner Size Question

12 September 2017 - 04:47 PM

Hi all, Im new here so looking for a bit of help.

40 years on bikes, motocross and American cars has left me looking for a kit car. need the thrill of wind I my hair but comfort from sitting down . this is my problem.

Ive sat in 3 Robin Hood's so far, the problem I have is 6ft tall and 18 stone I have difficulty with the left knee . tried driving and just sat in, the steering wheel will not rotate freely as knee jams between it and down part of chassis tubing behind dash.

one car had a steering wheel with flat at the bottom, the other two had removable ones, easy to get in and out but still a safety issue while driving. don't particularly want to go too small on steering wheel as wide shouldered.

is the wide bodied version any wider in the area?

has anyone else had a problem here and got around it?


I would look at a part built kit to modify or a finished car they could be modified without too much change to it, hence asking before buying.
