    Why hill climb events are so dangerous and cages are so important

    Hill climb events take huge balls. You better be perfect as there is little room for error. Especially when you are going for a record run. The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is perhaps the most well known hill climb in the world and it has taken several lives.

    The mountain almost added another victim but despite the driver misjudging the corner and careening off the edge with flip after flip he managed to walk away.

    Never skimp on a cage or safety equipment or else you may not be so lucky.

    Everyone has a photographic memory, some just don't have film.

    Cages have become much cheaper and less effective since then.

    Yeah cages are mass manufactured with disclosure paperwork staying something along the lines of the cage not being an added safety measure.

    Cages are pretty much made for stance f4ggots now

    Not trying to start anything here, but good God you're an arrogant little $#@!. Your antics alone are why I'd never buy one single product from you, ever.
    Because racecar.

    Tony, not every update needs to be something brand new. I don't think we will ever get a video that better exemplifies why a quality cage is important than this one.

    It's a fun forum and great atmosphere. Why do you feel the need to drag things down? Let people enjoy themselves.

    Video is old, but is cool to see the car displayed somewhere.

    I was there that day. I was higher up the mountain closer to the treeline, and when he pasted us he was smoking out of the engine bay pretty bad. Which we later found out was the power steering leaking; hence the bad left turn...

    And whomever built the roll cage deserved a raise/bonus, that's for damn sure.
