My suggestion would be to look into buggy type karts. They're bigger and offer more legroom. Another option would be to extend the frame and pedals on the 415 but that's a huge undertaking. Do some research on how much legroom there is on what interests you.

Thanks

Here's an example of how much legroom different Hammerhead kart models offer.

I'm 6' 3" and I fit (sort of) in a carter 2575, which is about a foot shorter than my 415. I would get you a leg room measurement off of mine, but I'm still looking for a seat, so it wouldn't be accurate.
