    MPI regarding roll cage addition to insured street car

    Actually, air bags do not even have to function which strikes me as very odd. All the emission equipment has to be in place and working but I guess SAFETY is not part of the program. At least that was last week sorry for the hijack Greg, seems whenever there is a question about our illustrious insurance provider, it always goes sideways.

    MPI regarding roll cage addition to insured street car

    And to be fair, as far as I know, the Porsche GT3 RS (991) w/clubsport package is allowed in Canada. I think this is the model with the "factory" rollbar so I don't see how they can exclude a roll cage in any other car. My point is not to argue the fact that there are factory cars that can do <14 seconds or that a loud, lumpy, heavily cammed car should not be allowed on the street. If you choose to drive one of these cars on the street, expect some issues and or hassles from your insurer. They are certainly going to wonder "exactly where did this single vehicle accident really occur?" if there is ever a claim. And with a full cage in any street car, I think they would be justified in doing so. All boils down to risk. There will probably come a time that some insurance companies will refuse to provide insurance to all sorts of cars for all sorts of reasons.

    I'll bet it got a lot better mileage than the muscle car.

    MPI regarding roll cage addition to insured street car

    Don't like to be the "Bad Guy of Reason" here but WTF would he want to register an 11 second car for the street in the first place? Pretty expensive set of wheels as a DD. So the only other reason would be, well ... we won't go there.

    2019 Schedule

    I am going to try to upload and maintain, coerce others to do so, ask the discipline directors to do so ... events to the calendar on the forums. This will do two things: 1.) automatically update the calendar on the website (this makes the website home page calendar live) 2.) provide a source for an ical download or feed for others to update their personal calendar automatically. (PM me if you need help with this) Especially for members with CRS. In the posts, additional information can be entered as to schedules, extra or special notes, links, etc. so all the information can be found in one place. Unfortunately the calendar posts can only be edited by the original poster. Opinions/help greatly appreciated.
