I don't see why? If anything it saves lives in rollovers, and protects in side impacts.

So your saying, If I add the Hard dog door bars to my bar setup, it's technically illegal?

check with icbc, they'll tell you its illegal. It has to do with changing the vehicles impact rating or some shit.

Yeah its safer, but they dont like it.

edit: Yet, roll bars are ok... doesn't make sense does it.

Hmm, Cause a girl we know named Myriam had a spoon bolt in cage n her EG civic. She was T-boned hard, and the car was'nt nearly as bad as it should have been.

I'd really like to get the Hard Dog bolt in door bars for my rollbar, just for similar reasons.

Well its not so much illegal for changing the impact rating, but more that any cage requires the driver to wear a helmet to protect against head injuries from hitting the cage in a collision.

because hitting your head on a bar is so much worse than having your head crushed. does it say anything about wrapping it with that foam?

think melon and baseball bat. a cage does not flex at all, go find some pics of helmets after a good crash on track

i would put padding around the area of the driver and passengers head. obviously the padding wont do much if your car gets obliterated, but in the case of a smaller accident it could prevent one from being knocked out or concussed. also anytime one has a cage or a rollbar of some sort, as jeff stated, its important that a bucket seat and harness be used in conjunction. a regular seat belt will stop a person from flying through the windshield, but will not stop a persons upper body from moving side to side, where as a harness keeps your entire body firm in the seat. as with all safety equipment, it really can be a double edged sword if not used properly.

here is an fia document on wrc safety. here you can see how in depth they go.

neither of my cars have had airbags...rather sucks.

jeffh how much give is there to lots of other parts your head could hit? not a whole hell of a lot, though I know not having door panels has lead to some serious injury, so I'm thinking that little bit is a lot better than none. I think a cage wrapped in foam would be the safest setup.

just cuz momo made it, it doesn't make it that special. its not a racing wheel. Now if your seats said Recaro, then that would be different.
