Safety film for windows
« on: May 19, 2014, 09:20:47 PM »
What safety film is required "on both sides" for non-laminated windows (side and hatchglass)?
I sucessfully street raced for 25 years (Gov stole drag strip).  I built Show and Race cars for 10 years professionally.  Have been doing well racing Half, Mile and Open Road Rally last few years.  I have many Mopars in my yard, 2 Vipers, 3 Stealth TTs, 440 Duster, 340 Demon, and a dozen project cars.

Some of the folks are using this -

A pretty funny video there, showing a couple of knuckleheads trying to break into a building with the product on the interior panes.

Personally, I'd bite the bullet and go with polycarbonate windows and be done with it.  It's the direction that the rules appear to be trending.

Ted,

A standard reply here is to contact the tech guys, Lee Kennedy and Steve Davies for an official reply. Their contact info can be found in section 16 of your rule book.

Good luck,

Thanks.  I'm trying to keep the car as close to stock as possible.  It's why I'm running GT class.  Not wanting to build a race car, but wanting to come out and kick some Acura! 

As far a safety goes, I've been under a loaded semi at highway speeds in a Viper and not even a bruise.  Starting with one of the safest cars on the planet and upgrading from there.
