Default R35 Seat height

Does anyone know if it is possible to lower the driver’s seat in the R35. I am 6’ 6’’ and need extra room for a helmet.

Don't think so. I had to remove the seat (easy--4 bolts) to attach the right side 4-point belt and I didn't see any way to do so. You're stuck with an aftermarket seat.

I'm only 5'-6" and my helmet almost brushes the roof. At 6'-6" you've got a real problem. If not a low race seat, perhaps you could get the roof modified to have a bulge for your head (the way they did for Dan Gurney in the Ford GT's back in the 1960s. That would be a unique touch for your GT-R.
