Will the top still go up over it?
>>> Yes.
Quote:
do you see any problem passing the helmet clearance chech when the broomstick is laid from windshield to rollbar?
>>>As I sit in the car, my unhelmeted head is about 3" below a straightedge laid across the windshield header and the rollbar.
Quote:
Is it a bolt in?
>>> Yes.
Quote:
what are the negative issues pertaining to risk of injury versus a weld in unit?
>>> I'm not certain that I understand your question. Are you concerned the rollbar will come unfastened and strike an occupant?
Quote:
Very nice. I think the HMS (and hard dog) rollbars look very sharp on the Z. Let us know how it feels...
>>> Thank you! I'll give you my impression after the autocross on 10/20/02. I am most interested in the stiffening benefits of the rollbar, I have no intention of testing its rollover protection
