Tuesday Tech Question – 9/5/2017

QUESTION:  I have a 34 Ford with a roll bar that runs mid 11’s.  I was told that my short back bucket seats are properly supported by the cross bar behind the seat but I still need a head protector.  Is this correct?

 

ANSWER:  That is correct.  In any car where a roll bar or roll cage is installed, a padded head protector must be provided at the back of the driver’s head and constructed in an attempt to prevent whiplash upon impact.  A seat that incorporates a reinforced headrest is permitted.
