Speaking of roll cages... video clip

For anyone interested, this is a video clip of a club member rolling his CJ7 down Helicopter Pad in Tellico a few years back...
This one uses a RealMedia broswer plug-in

or you can download it

Be warned, these are pretty large files - but do a good job showing him rolling 2 & a half times luckily to be stopped by a tree. He was using a standard CJ7 factory roll bar with spreaders and a front hoop welded in (what most people refer to as a "full cage" in a CJ). The driver was not injured - not a scratch, a bruise, or a break. He was wearing the factory seatbelt - and it worked wonderfully. The CJ body on the other hand was pretty beat up - but the cage held up just fine...

If any of you are familiar with Tellico, you know how "interesting" Helicopter Pad can be...

And yes, you may have seen this clip on TV before [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

If anyone is interested, I may be able to get some pictures of the cage as it looks now if some of you want to see if/where it deformed, etc.
