I am in the research process for building a car. I am new to racing and my main track will be Summit Point. I purchased a very clean 1999 Miata with a LSD differential. Car has 100,000 miles on it but runs really well and has no rust. Original owner kept the car in a garage it's whole life and only drove it on nice days. I picked up the Spec Miata Constructors Manual from Advanced Autosports which has been a great read/guide. I am 6'3" 200lbs.
I recently purchased a hardtop for the car. I also purchased a mounting kit to bolt the hardtop to the car. The hardtop was ordered new through Mazda but still needs to be built in Japan and shipped. I assume I need to order some Frankenstein bolts to mount it so those will get purchased next after the top arrives.
I am planning to use the roll cage kit from Miatacage.com with the upgrade shelf mount kit as well as a floor drop kit (not sure which one yet).
Question 1: I need to source a racing seat and with my height I would like as much headroom as possible. What do you guys recommended for a seat? Can I use any seat mount or are they specific to the seat?
Question 2: What do you guys recommend for a floor drop kit?
