No disrespect, but I'm just trying to get my point across that you're ignorant and an asshole.

+1 for the funny thread
Another +1 for making a good point.


I wish I had a roll bar so I can:
1: Stiffen the chassis
2. Feel safer on the streets (I don't track my car at all by the way)
3. Rock that bikini top

He's only expressing what MIGHT b his opinion. The moment he tries to pass it off as a matter of fact with that absurdity then check him. Don't feed the trolls.

I rolled my '01 Crystal Blue in April. No roll bar. I got my head and face gouged and cut up BAD, and came real close to bleeding to death pinned upside down in the car. Hospital, 7 weeks off work, and now facing 1 to 2 years of facial plastic surgery to repair the bloody meat that the trauma team did their best to sew up. Nasty. (Update: 3 surgeries so far, 9 weeks off work total.) And with all that, I was extremely, extremely lucky. Should have died or worse. When I replace my Miata, it will have a roll bar, period. No hurry, because I can't be out in the sun for the next couple years.

As others have said, Miatas are hard to roll over, but they'll obediently do it when the laws of physics say they must. All it takes is a small mistake, or lapse in attention, in the wrong place. In my case, it was the wrong line through a downhill hairpin, getting one wheel off the edge of the road, causing the right side of the car to go up a mountainside. I don't remember the flip. All I know is I slid on the asphalt with a ton of Miata strapped to my back, leaving about a 12-foot skidmark of blood and skin and tissue on the road. The windshield folded down flat. I'm about 6 feet tall, and the seatbelt and the 01's high seatbacks somehow kept me from breaking my neck, but they couldn't protect me from getting hacked up real good.

I had considered the argument that a roll bar can cause rear-of-head injury in a rear-ender, and that you'll probably never roll a Miata. There's some merit to that, but from my experience, I'll never drive the twisties again without a roll bar. The answer might be different for those whose driving is mostly in traffic, but for me, the answer is the tallest bar that will clear the soft top, with real good padding and/or tall seats from an '01 or later Miata.

There's always a lot of theory and speculation on this issue, and my purpose in responding to this thread was to provide some hard evidence from personal experience. I feel a kinship with fellow Miata owners and I really want to prevent others from ending up on the wrong side of the odds.
y dont u go to m.net and argue with detonator how that accident did not happen.

At least our cars come with some sort of stock roll bar-ish setup. But I'm about 5'8", and with the seat in the lowest position, I failed the broomstick test =(. That's why I ended up getting a AWR/Goodwin double hoop.

Still better than giving a douche money. No matter how nice a product is, if the seller is a dick, I lose all interest in buying.
