I’m 5′ 11″ 200 lbs and run an extended porch on my Birel, which I road race.  I added the porch after setting a new Tillet 9.5 seat in the kart and putting it tilted as far back as allowed.  This cut down my wind resistance significantly, but left me no room for my long legs.  The porch has taken a couple of races to get used to the new positioning of my feet, which now ride atop the front frame rail, but I’m now very comfortable in the seat.
