DD is RF in a radian in my car and my exes. In my car she us JUST level with the next to last slot. In his car she is quite below that same slot. She is more upright in his car so you'd think her shoulders would be higher. It's just such a difference and I don't see how.

Yep. I cant believe how long her torso is though lol My youngest will be 3 in a few weeks and she still has like an inch before she is at the 3rd slots. She did gain about 1/2in growing room when I installed with the angle adjuster as well :)

Same here, Sam is in the 3rd slot of my ex's RadisnXT, but the 4th slot in both my RadianXT and RXT. I think mine are more upright than his, too. I really have no idea, except that it seems to be a vehicle difference, not a seat difference.

Yup, my ds only has about 1/2" left before he outgrows his R120 RF in my truck but has a good 1" or so in his 80SL in dh's truck. Seats always seem to install very upright in dh's truck therefore he always gains room in his seats in that vehicle.

You really think her torso is long? She is overall short at 33.5 inches but I did notice she doesn't have much room left in the Scenera and it kinda shocked me. She must be ALL torso...I have had to start buying 4T shirts but I thought it was just her belly. Guess her torso is long hmm
