How well do you fit with a helmet on?

I'm about 5'10. I was sitting in my car with a helmet on and I felt like I didn't have much head room at all even with the seat adjustment all the way down. I fit better if I push my seat back a little further but it's not great. I prefer a closer to the wheel position. I couldn't imagine if I was 6 foot plus how I would be able to fit in the car with a helmet.

I am 6'2" and i have to have the seat all the way down and reclined quite far and my helmet is very close to the headliner. I installed the 55mm steering wheel extender and it is just what I needed to get the wheel into the correct position. I got mine at Xtndr Steering Spacer 55mm for 86/BRZ/FRS

High quality build. 60-90 mins to install.
Is it uncomfortable driving with the seat reclined like that with the helmet on? Did you have to get a wheel extender or any other changes? I'm 6'3 and gonna be doing my first track day in a month, but worried it might be tight with the helmet on and will have to recline my seat (which is an uncomfortable driving position for me)
I have the 949 racing wheel extender and it is a huge help. I am 6 ft 2 and most of that is spine. The difficulty with reclining the seat far back is that you don't have upper back or shoulder bolster support. So cornering requires a lot of stabilization with the legs and the elbow in the door. Still the most fun you can have on four wheels
