Now the bars that go on top front to back are so close to my head, that I can touch it without effort, even strapped down. And with the helmet on, well, I might as well tape my helmet to the bar to keep it from bouncing constantly. And this is even before I install the roll bar pads.
I never had a full cage before, but this doesn't sound safe.
Sounds like I'll have to sit this one out. I was really looking forward to come.
I recently had a full cage installed in the toyota and I had the same issue. The installer was able to move the cage a little forward but not off to the side any. My head is a little close to the halo and with padding on it is like right there but I can drive with no issues and it is not a hindorance. I would say drive the car in the school so you get a feel of the current installation and go from there to see what you may need to change. Remember the school is slow paced and under controlled circumstances.
Hope to see you there.
