I drive an '87 XT and a '92 Legacy wagon and have the seats slid back, steering wheel tilted up, and the seats pretty much upright although some tilt back on the seat will gain you some headroom. I feel pretty comfy, my head does touch the headliner a little, but not badly.
I always wanted to try some club type racing, but there is no way to drive with a helmet unless they allow me to have the helmet sticking out of the sunroof !
Perhaps if you take out the seat, make some custom brackets and bolt the seat right to the floor. Clean, quick, and permanent !

Here's a pic of the seats in my RX:
I don't have a pic of the height adjustment but it's a crank on the outside of the seat near the front.

i bet he was shorter than that.

it's not head clearance that i need. w/my new seat cover i gain about a 1/2 inch-1 inch or so. even without the seat cover the angle that my feet hit the pedals fatigues my legs alot faster than most other cars. there aren't any XT in any yards in my area. i'm gonna be making a trip to cheyenne in a couple weeks and i'll check down there. i saw the XT seats and they look like they have alot of lateral suport.
