Will the Roadster’s soft top stay on at really high speeds?

The soft top is designed to stay on at speeds of 150 mph. Team Viper folks say that the "top ejection" complaints they’ve heard about, where the top detaches, were all due to "Operator Error." It is crucial to ensure that the rear "tweezer clips" snap into place. Do this by reaching up and CLOSING the tweezer manually, while pushing down on the outside above the latch, so that the tweezer grabs its hasp firmly. A pristine latch has a shrink-plastic coating that can inhibit a firm latching. Worn-off tweezers can fasten in an even more positive way. You can actually feel and hear the click as they latch.
