I wasn't questioning the physics. I was questioning the practicality of considering the existence of 6000lb vehicles on the road when buying a car. There will always be larger vehicles. I don't feel any safer in my 3400lb STI than I do in my 2800lb 2.5RS... and I certainly don't entertain those thoughts when driving the Miata, despite already tangling with a much larger vehicle once before. It's not worth pretending that an extra 1000lbs of steel is going to help when someone else on the road is being careless.

I engineer armchairs.
