As I am only 165 cm high and I feel to deep in the spider. Anybody here to tell me what I could do ?
I think I cover it pretty well in this thread...
Being short that is the great thing about being able to lower the steering column and not just tilt the steering wheel. The only draw back is that at times that also means i lower the column and block part of my view of the dash in some vehicles. Sometimes i only lower it far enough that it almost obstructs the speedo but not as far as i wish i could. Anyone getting in after me must raise the column or they won't get in. Also i am not usually comfortable unless my left foot can rest on the left rest spot. In a manual Wrangler the seat needs to be so far forward in order to push in the clutch that my knees actually rest on the knee blocker under the column.Arm position is number one priority. You should be able to sit in the seat, without "reaching" (your shoulders should still be touching the seat back) and you should be able to rest your wrists on the top of the steering wheel. If you can't reach, then you are sitting too far from the steering wheel. Any performance driving instructor will tell you this. This is how I like to be seated.
I'm 165 cm and interestingly, I do like the front edge up, I don't like the feeling of "sliding down" in the seat when it is too flat, as happens on most airliner seats. I like the underside of my upper thighs lightly supported.I am 162.5cm tall and I feel good in the seat. I do not like the front edge up, so i used the knob to lower it, otherwise i fell ok. I also understand the feeling that you will never feel like you can see the front of the car while you are sitting so low.
