RX8 Roll Bar Pic..

Post by Brian »

Had a customer ask about back seat access with roll bar. This picture helps show the issue.

okay I for one love that look with the Recaro bucket seat and the Roll bar, but is it not obvious that no ones riding in the back if he has a roll bar?

I plan on putting bucket seats and that roll bar in my 8 as well but whats the real benefit other then it looks great and you can run harness belts? I mean if you roll over its not really covering your head? will it help if god for bid the rx8 rolls over on its back?

ummm... and throwing out the backseats when installing the roll bar, what do you thing boss? i want to make sure it still is a street tuning car but at the same time id like them out.

It was not obvious to some, which is why I put up the picture to help show the issue. Nobody safety sitting in the back with the roll bar.

I'd take out the back seats if I had a roll bar!
