wait, are you saying a unibody production car is safer? I am not sure Beaverboy. I have seen roll cage cars survive crashes and impacts that would kill passenger cars. I know you have as well. If it is safe enough for the track, I would wager it is okay for the streets, where speeds and regulations keep things pretty tame. If I am off base, please enlighten me.
