    For those of you out there who like to draw their projects on a computer first, where have you sourced your models/assemblies of a driver??
    The one I have resembles a giant size Steven Hawking.

    Cheers

    I can't remember where I got mine, I can check at home later.

    The CAD model of my car is fairly detailed, though I didn't use the human model for much. Instead, I used measurements off my daily driver for seat to pedal distance, and seat to steering wheel distance and then sat in the real seats I planned to use to get the overhead clearance distance.

    One thing to keep in mind - make sure any switches on your dash are within reach when you're strapped into the seat.

    I'm pretty sure I got mine off grabcad, maybe try searching for racecar driver or something similar. I used this guy and it worked great, I fit perfect in mine.

    I had to take a look. Morbid curiosity.
    I wanted to model some reduce roll cage heights so was looking for a body. Thanks for the tips.

    Rorty buggies were designed for driver 6'7" as Bob is a big bloke. I'm only 5'9 so want to get rid of some of that air gap above my head! I'm using one of jgs' 4 axis CNC tube cutters so want to model the cage before I cut it.
