If you install a rollcage into an exige, like the s111 cage for example, does this mean that you would have to be stupid to drive it without a helmet on? AKA no longer a streetable car?
Just curious, why no airbag if you have a cage?It has the package I described. Cage, seats, 6 point harness, provision for HANS, no airbag. Everything but helmet.
There were a lot of SCCA memos about how full-face helmets and airbags are dangerous in the early 2000s. The memos appear to be rooted in a combination of hearsay and driver's folklore with research done by the FIA in the 90s when they were considering airbags in F1 cars (v. HANS systems). Strangely the studies didn't actually find that helmets and airbags were particularly dangerous together - just that HANS was as good or better than an airbag and much cheaper to implement.Just curious, why no airbag if you have a cage?
Or is it no airbag if you have a helmet?
Or is it that the airbag is useless with a 5-6 point harness?
Either way why?
