Official word from Tim and Chris at MRP:
This will change based on the grip and the type of event. We are assuming a WKA event in this answer:
If you use a Tillet size C seat then measure 51 cm from front left side to the front edge of seat and 51 or up to 52 cm on the right side.
From the axle top to the top edge of the back of the seat..20 cm.
Bottom of seat just above the lower frame rail when low grip and 5 cm below the frame rail when there is lots of grip. Seat placement is a very big part of changing chassis adjustments and you need to be flexible.

The challenge with Carl's driver (his son Clay) is that Clay is very, very small.
When we put the seat in his first C28, I had to make "cheater brackets" to move the seat forward, just so Clay could reach the steering wheel. He also has a Noonan pedal system on it as well.
Carl now lives in Louisville.
Carl, you need to schedule a day or two to go up to MRP Southbend and test with Chris or Tim.

Snow remains on the track here.
OUr next event is the WKA Jax race followed by back to back Florida Winter tour races. From there, maybe April 1st is the first time the tracks might be drivable. Garry for Chris and Tim.
