Oh I know that last post of mine was mostly BS kinda for haha's but yes they are amazing. I went sideways into a poll at 45mph and I opened the top and walked away then later fixed and sold the car. I have looked at the pics on there site, i think im also going to end up getting a full cage put it to work with the soft top the car from this point is no longer going to me my DD.

I wish that you were closer. I have a DOM main hoop already bent that I'd get rid of.

Anyone ever seen an SUV get hit by a smaller Sedan or the likes? We had a chick at MS.com hit a guy in his HHR while back, she was in an SUV. The front of the car was toast, but it was cool. But, the mountainer rolled a few times in a 30-40mph accident.

When SUV's and similar high-roll center cars get hit low, especially from the sides, its a round and around you go. They don't really flip, but man can those bastards roll for a while. Had a bud who also rolled his Ford Exploder 3 times for no damn reason (one accident) and it just astonishes me.

4200-5200lbs or better for most of those vehicles, and in most cases, way less safe. Don't forget "safe" also means the ability to avoid the damn accident in the first place. Better visibility and manuverability in a Miata than a lot of the common crap out there.
