They are very long in the cockpit. Much longer than a jedi. I've had both

I'm 6' 2" and drive a Jedi. Also the cockpit is quite wide compared to other single seaters.
To get extra legroom and reduce head height I removed the seat and made a 2 part polyprop cushion to sit on. It's worked fine for the last 12 years.
I also have some pipe lagging on the chassis bars above my knees to protect them.

Cheers for the info - didn't realise it was next season!
The 1100 class is likely to get even bigger.

I ran with the original fuel tank for a couple of seasons, but did like you and moved it to behind the engine so that I could mount the ECU etc. behind the seat.
