Check the Loring rule book to be sure you need one at the speeds you are running, say up to 149 MPH.

If you decide on a Safety Solutions Rage R3, contact me. I have a brand new one that I will not be using.

Contact Joe Timney at Delaware Chassis Works (302-379-3013) he is definately your guy.  He is a dealer for Hans, but will be more than willing to offer advice on any of the devices or any safety equipment necessary to race. He is extremely knowledgeable and more than willing to offer his expertise as well as being a darn nice guy!!

The type of car and design of the cage should also factor into your decision. An example of what I mean is, we tried the HANS like NASCAR uses and it sits kind of high above the shoulders. The device would catch on the front hoop of the cage when the driver tried to get out of the car. Another example is cars where the driver sits in a reclined position some of the h&N restraints cause porblems. Just a thought.
Records or parts, I didn't come all this way not to break something.

Hi Jon (SSS), and for the other John..I typed the phone number incorrectly...the CORRECT number for Delaware Chassis Works is 302-378-3013.     Too bad spell check doesn't do numbers....Anyway, give him a call...I will tell you that if you are planning on having a young lady drive your car, keep in mind the frontal configuration.  As you can see, the Hybrid Pro would not offer a good fit....Just sayin'

Good luck with your decision!!
