Have you considered replacing the standard seat with a fixed racing seat? This would definitely allow you to lower the seating postition.

I doubt there is 2" of lowering available! The rails are very close to the seat.

You'll need to find a seat that has a lower bottom cushion set.

Boxer's suggestion is a good one.

You must have a long torso - I'm also 6'4" and have headroom to spare...

A fitted racing seat might be your best option.

I am particularily fond of the medium Sparcos in the F40
