Do these work for tall drivers (6'-4") that need to lean their seat backs in order for their helmets to clear the roof? Im concerned that my upper back and shoulders would get so firmly planted against the seat, that I would have trouble controlling and turning the steering wheel properly on the track.

Not sure, do you have a sunroof as i know that reduces head/helmet clearances by 2-3 inches. I'm 5'7" and have the 1M so don't have clearance issues.

I have a sunroof unfortunately...

My seats are manual, so go lower than electric seats, and even when not wearing a helmet, I need to set them sunk to the ground.

When I visit the track, if I do not recline my seat, the helmet touches the roof liner. When I recline my seat, this moves my torso further from the steering wheel, so I have to slide the seat forward a little to reach it, and I tilt the steering wheel upwards a little so my legs dont rub on the wheel when I heal and toe.

Far from the ideal driving position, but need to make compromises, as other life expenses get in the way... ;-)
