    How would your head even reach the roll bar? It would hit the seat head rest before the roll bar.

    I don't now if GTS is the same as RT/10.

    Driver seat dropped, emergency handles work but very close
    and the soft top fits nice but you have to have skinny hands to push the levers.

    The BTR looks like it would have better rear view but does it have the extra bulk head so you don't have to drill your original one?

    BTR doesn't look as good though IMO. i never gave thought to the bulk head getting cut up. makes sense though DUH !

    I wanted a BTR in the first place but he does not have anymore. He will not start producing again until he gets 10 confirmed orders. Already tried that route.

    That bar looks closer to the head than the Autoform in the GTS...food for thought if you have an accident without a helmet on.

    In a crash all sorts of crazy things happen. Forces acting in every direction.

    Before I put the seats back in. AutoForm rollbar....I opted to make the OEM center piece fit with custom cuts (measure 30 times, cut once).

    Hey Plum...I'm just loafing around waiting on my life. :)

    Fatboy...if you find one we might just have to find a way to get it to "some Viper Owner" stationed at Mildenhall or Lakenheath. :)

    I have the BBD bar and it is very light and works well. It is a bit clost to the head , but not close enough to cause a problem , foam padding will help ease your mind. Since it is just a 4 point , you may have trouble at some tracks that require a side bar.

    The only people that would have an issue with hitting the bar would be if you had your seat back and reclined. For shorter people your seat would be more forward so you wouldn't be able to reach the bar.

    So it looks like it comes down to the size of the driver and if you want to cut up your bulkhead.
