    Street cars have a 3 pts, allows for head to "duck" down in a roll over, also have airbags. As soon as you strap yourself in, safety requirements change.

    the difference between the two series is the type of racing/passing. Safety requirements follow along.

    maybe your being rhetorical, but it looks like about 70 newtons to break a neck. And your crash scenario is about 120 newtons.

    Or girl in a go-kart vs tire wall. Some wonder why old school racers used to not wear restraints, better odds of living when ejected.

    Who's head is hitting the tree? Some peeps on here would likely snap the tree in half.

    Not quite. If you have a straight on collision, it is not the bending of your neck. It is equivalent to having your head pulled straight up. Easily does damage to spinal chord, quadriplegic or death if you are lucky.

    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.

    Depends on the price. My budget is limited this year. I'll definitely take a set of 4 for sure.
