well i just got here and was reading the forum on head and neck restraints. alot of theses newbees that are young and think they know it all should look into what happened to earnharth,petty, they didnt make it, because the restraint wasn't developed yet.i cant go off roading anymore because of that same issue , i made it threw that one but now it hurts to much to go and under doctors advice i dont, hence the "xdesertracer" i am camp security, its ok travis and i pit for others and they seem to like experience and youth team. the guys and gals and their children don't know the results or look at the past accidents , they think it won't happen to them. I see the rino"s as the worst case of all
