Hey guys,

Im looking to get a SRT-4 but im 6' 4". Anyone around this height own one? How confortable is it in the drivers seat, as well as the back?

Thanks,
Ken
Ken, I weigh-in at 247 and have 53-inch chest, squatters butt, and 5-11 tall. The lower booster may pose a problem of getting in and out but the seat is firm.

i dont own an srt4 yet, but i do own a 2000 es. i am 6'3, 285 lbs and have had no trouble getting in and out of my car. hemi, i know exactly what ur going through with the squatter's ass and the huge chest. i am built the same way, just taller. there is more than enough headroom so dont worry about that. it will be interesting to see if i have any problems getting in and out as well. lol

It is the booster that may give you problems.

It is even worse that I had to rip a few muscles when I repping 405 benches and the left arm had sound of tearing muscles. Now, get in and out with high-booster is a pain.

Not having the truck (someone is borrowing the beast) makes my life miserable.
405, damn!!! i think the highest i got for bench was repping 260, but my power is all in the legs. i USED to squat a little over 500 but my favorite was leg press. i was repping 950-1000. then college came and sucked me away. gonna try and lose some weight so i can be more competitive in judo.

How about the backseats...how roomy are they? Obviously i wouldnt be comfortable, but if i were to have passengers would they be cramped?

Backseat has other uses as well...but we'll leave that question alone :wink:

Average folks fit fine but your seat all the way back will give the passenger hell behind you.

Yea but Judo or Karate is a different form of working out with weights. Ya-da-man. A limber body and easy to get in and out of the car.

Thx for help guys. Lets all hijack the thread and make it a martial arts / weighlifting thread? I take kenpo karate :wink:
:lol:
Ok, then. Taekwon-do, here. A little judo, but it was too much of a sport for me. And wrestling. Not professional, the real kind

I've done few of those...and now into traditional and modern Wushu.

In any case, if you are super sore from working out, it does take some extra extra careful work to get in and out of the SRT-4. I'm not Mr. Yao at all but still look for the oh-shit handles from time to time.
