    How many people have rolled a car in their past? How was the experience?

    Why, you planning on rolling one?

    I rolled a VW Beetle many years ago end over end believe it or not. It was sort of freaky but my buddy and I didn't get hurt.

      Yes, I have indeed done the thing that turtles also do on occasion. It was a terrain condition on the side of the road that managed to induce a rollover. I had a 4-point Schroth harness that was properly installed and worn along with a Hard Dog Hard Core single diagonal bar. The bar had barely a scratch on it after 2 or 3 rolls at 55mph. Although I was trapped in the car because of the way I landed in a dotch, I walked away without even a scratch/bruise/cut.

        That's intense. I dread to think what happens to the poor buggers without a roll bar. They better hope they're not wearing a seatbelt and get flung out.

            It's a slim chance you'd ever actually roll the car though. But it also makes the chassis of the car so much stiffer and the car will fill more stable... and it takey the 'cuteness' away.

            rant- i hate seeing people that try to label a style bar as a roll bar or roll cage..... idiots.

              I completely agree. That bothers me too.

                  True story....I pulled a style bar off a car I bought a few yrs ago and offered it on ebay.
                  It brought just over $300...PLUS shipping. :lol:

                  Ok..to be somewhat fair it was a KGWorks unit...but still, its the same **** you can get from OBX or any Ebay brand. Just goes to show how stupid the JDM - Road&Ster idiots can be. ;)

                    I did a back flip in a Mazda B3000 truck. Lost the back end on a dirt road, hit a dirt bank and flipped. Landed on the roof. I walked away with out getting hurt at all.

                    I flipped an Acura Legend also. I took a curve at 70 and slid off the pavement onto the grass bank and down in a deep ditch. Again, walked away with out a scratch.
                    Kinda inherited the car from my Grandfather. Its a love hate relationship. lol

                        Exactly. Lol, although, over a year and no flips(knocks on wood) Havent had a ticket in 6 months or any kind of accident in over a year. So my driving has become much better
