those steering wheel spokes are knuckle biters in a crash , rap those things in rubber edge molding& tape, much softer blow to the hand& fingers in a crash, oh And wear gloves tooIt's not like you are sliding around on the steering wheel..... I think Johnny wears gloves now....
450 degrees is nothing in the fire environment, and that is what we should be talking about. My guess is those gloves will delaminate above 450 degrees. Wood burns at 750+, gas, add almost 1,000 degrees.
Off-road racing with Ivan Stewart; hang-gliding; kayaking in Chile.
Ivan Stewart didn't wear gloves, had open cockpit (like current race trucks).
See "The Extremists" Ivan Steward. Had Baja 1000 footage, MTEG footage. I recorded it on Beta video, have video on my computer
