    IMO you should delete the seat track. You cannot move the seat forward or back. It only fits in one location.

    Wallace18, thanks for the heads up! I didn't consider that; I guess I'll take that off the order. I was thinking of different sized drivers, possible future owners. I sat in the hot rod at the build school but couldn't get a feel for pedal operation and seat placement. I guess I'll figure it out when the time comes.

    Side note...I see you're in Alachua. I have a Hunter 356, which is/was built in Alachua...Do you happen to work at Marlow-Hunter?

    Agree on delete seat track. With seat all the way back, it would still be tight for a child.
