    So this weekend was about tuning the new belts and finalizing the seating position.
    I did a quick broomstick test...not even close.
    The rule is that the top of the helmet needs to be below a line drawn between the roll hoop and the dash roll hoop.
    Squished down as much as I can go and tightened the belts to the point where it hurts.
    I'm about 2" off.
    So my options are:
    1. Say fuck it...just do the libre races, cause its not a rule there.
    2. Try again with my actual race helmet...might make a difference. Really squish down...a position that will pass the test but not optimal for driving
    3. Buy a new roll hoop...its a cool design that bolts on...there is a version that is 2" taller...but $800 USD
    4. Remove the seat and go with a foam deal.

    Modify broom stick.

    Or go with beadseat. Have you tried without the seat? Just to see if it works?

    Yeah...I can pass without seat. But it means moving forward a bit more and bending my knees more than comfortable.

    Fuck it...I think the combination of my actual helmet and some creative spinal compression should be enough to pass the test.

    The fit with the fiberglass seat is so perfect and is going to save me a lot of bruises and aches.

    Can't really modify the current hoop easily or in a way to satisfy scrutineering. Thats why they make interchangeable, bolt in versions.

    Ask JettaRacer about the time his ex-wife attended the dude who rolled his vintage open wheel racer at Mosport. He did not pass the broomstick test and said fuck it and raced. He will never pass a broomstick test ever again.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    The Fiberglass seat will feel like sitting on 2x4s compared to a bead seat.

    Once you’re racing you won’t notice.
