    Default HANS vs No HANS Live Test



    There you have it. Now go buy yourself a HANS.

    Beyond me why anyone would get in a race car without some sort of head and neck support.

    ^It's expensive and money is about the most significant motivator there is. More than safety. That being said, I feel better about buying mine when I see videos like this.

    Funny you say that now. 20 years ago or so you could not buy a HANS as an amateur. We were using things like Wright devices and ISSAC's because that is what we could buy. I might have been the only one on the track with head neck support and people thought I was nuts and a pussy. It is amazing how times have changed.

    Or not...

    BTW, I can't even watch videos like this. That's how much of a pussy I am. There's something about those slow motion injury vids that makes me have to look away.

    Relative to some other safety modifications (seat, harness, rollbar or roll cage, etc), HANS is fairly inexpensive when you take into account resale value and the ability to recertify the device. You can use a $650 HANS for years and still only take a couple hundred dollar hit when you sell it on as long as you haven't been in accidents with it.

    This safety video is brought to you by Zhong, the guy who cares more about getting his car ready for the next time attack than getting a cage.

    He doesn't have a head and neck restraint, yet he has over $2000 in electronics just in the center of the dashboard. :facepalm:
