That is why I put a roll cage in my R/T before I ever added even nitrous, not to mention then the s/c and stroker. Safety first!!

This is why I most likely won't even make a pass until my baby is paid off.Even if you have a perfect run, you always gotta worry about the guy in the other lane. Sucks to see that happen. Hope the driver was ok.

did not watch the video, does he have a cage or just a 4 or 6 point roll bar? there is a difference. If you are a serious racer, you should not ignore safety features like cage, good brakes.

Like I always say J, "SAFETY FIRST" I see people spend mad money to make there cars fast but CRY about adding safety items:scratchhead: I had a roll bar in my car but after seeing that Lambo crash in Texas I decided on a full cage. If your gonna race on the track or do crazy things on the back roads I HIGHLY recommend safety items, Just sayin:thumbsup:

J, look how nice Sam's came out and he's still able to get the kids in the car. You can put tube connectors on the door bars and harness bar (Bar behind seat) so when your not racing you can pull the bars out. Every pass Sam made at the mile my stomach dropped knowing he didn't have a roll bar in the car. You got to see first hand when the Corvette flipped in Texas and the driver walked away:thumbsup:

I didn't watch the video but have had first hand experience with roll cages. I have watched my own car hit the wall at 185 mph due to a blower belt coming off and going under the back tire causing the car to jack knife. A roll cage is a very important part of safety no doubt. I have seen some dangerous roll cages become missiles inside the car also. If anyone is getting a roll cage I strongly suggest spending the extra money and get a professional chassis shop build it.

Yeah Sam has some pics posted, but it's better to see those types of things in person. I wanna see how livable it is.

I was going to call him but I know he's having too much fun hanging with AJ and the Arrington crew. The tires on "Mae West" should be half gone by now lol. He has a long drive home so I'm sure our phones will be ringing with updates and crazy driving stories :)

yikes.
that makes me worried enough to consider something even with just a SE and a power adder. So did the guy walk away or hospital time?

Arrington had a trick 392ci with some new goodies they wanted Sam to test out so the 6.1 based bad boy was installed. I'll leave the details for Sam to post. I will say his street tune puts a lot of race tunes to shame:thumbsup:
