q about racing verts with role bars

I was just thinking about a racing miata since my unrealistic idea of the month is getting 10k, builting a miata and magically racing in a miata class. lol.

anyway, say you have your roll bar behind you. maybe you've rigged a net over the driver door. what's too keep your hands from getting pinched under the bar in a violent roll over? is this just an accepted risk for roadster racing?

Yes!... But there are these things you can get (forget what they are called) that attach around your elbows that you hook to your racing seat or roll bar that keep your hands in the car. They have them for open wheel cars so I'm sure they are avilable for road cars also! I dont like them though. They restrict arm movement kinda like a Hans Device to your head. You can still function but their is something annoying in the way. I hate that!

They're called arm restraints. Go figure.

LOL, you'd figure with the open wheel racers in your sig you'd know what they are called.
Any sanctioning body or school (as in your sig) that uses open wheeled cars require them. Actually the proper place to attach the arm restraints is to the racing harness so they release together with the main harness as it is released for quick emergency exits. They should go above or below you elbow but not at the elbow. You get used to them and forget they are there pretty quick. The alternative is not much of a choice in my mind. They can be used in any type of car.
