I'm a bastard, and I'm going to say it.

Remember "shotubes?" Yeah, the fake roll cage in a honda civic...

I've always said, and stand by what I say... People who manufacture fake safety equipment for morons to buy should die in a car crash equipped with said fake safety equipment. Its the same fucktards that buy that junk who also buy a 4 or 5 point harness and bolt the rear of the straps to the ******* floor of the car behind the seat... Yeah, because your APC/Cheap Sparko (Yes, I know I spelled that wrong..) knockoff seat won't collapse when you go careening into a tree at 140mph off a cliff..

http://www.danotech.com/miata/rolled.html

theres a good site showing the differences in roll overs with no bar, style bars, and roll bars. notice how the roll bars have NO injuries while the style bars range from minor to fatal....i know its a hard choice, but i would rather go with something thats a little safer and has a proven record to help save a life. you never know when ur gonna take a turn wrong or someone cuts u off.

you can make the argument that a couple of them without bars walked away too.....LUCK... the red one in the mountain is a right hand drive car in austrailia and just happend to flip the right way... if u look at the other pics of the car u can see that if it was a left hand drive car the driver wouldnt have been as lucky. and as for bruce's white car, im not sure how he walked away from that one.

Safe or not style bars look gay.

good luck with your shiny toy bar.

at least this thread served to get some free cockpit braces in members' cars who appreciate them.


ps. nice STRAIGHT username, mazdarati
I really hope you didn't put too much thought into all of that... Keep trying though

Yeah, your site shows 2 rollovers with stylebar.. one was fatal.

Notice NO Bar or ROLL Bar have no fatal accidents? Sounds like a bad idea to use a style bar to me.

I am not going to comment on the look of the bars; to each his own. But I do agreed that you should get a proper 4 point bar. It is not a just a lot of BS that style bars can fold over the driver and kill then, it actually happens. Get the real deal, spend some more time installing it and be safe.

As for stiffness: When I bought my car, I knew **** about miatas and ragtops. It already had a 2 point style bar and I ran with that for some months before it was time to start tracking the car. Then I had to get a 4 point roll bar of course (got the bar in my sign used). The difference is stiffness is clearly noticable.
