The neck collar was for fire safety, Not for neck support. That is why you now have to run a head sock or helmet skirt with the head and neck restraint.

I've been using a HANS type device long enough to have to have it recertified. I bought mine after I watch a friend roll his SC car when the center broke in his rear wheel. After talking to him a few days later, he told me his neck wasn't even sore after the crash. I really like how it spreads the load of the seat belts across my shoulder area and not just where the belts ride.
When I first got it, it took a little extra time to get everything hooked up. Now it's easy-peasy. I remember when I made to switch to an open wheeled car, I thought the arm restraints were going to be too restrictive also. That is definitely not the case.

After wearing a HANS during the Cecil County race, and finding it to be a great distraction, I switched to the Simpson Hybrid for the Maple Grove race, and found it to be an instant night and day difference.. I also went with a helmet skirt, but found that it doesn't seem to allow enough fresh air into the helmet, which resulted in glasses and visor fogging.. I'll be switching to a head sock for the next race..

Stay tuned for further hunt and peck results..

The HANS will now be living in the RV, should anyone need one at a race I'm attending..

I need to try that one Like you said the one I was using flat out sucks. I don?t have a neck anyway, so it seems to ride the helmet and gets snagged sometimes. Definitely felt unsafe wearing it in the very tight confines of the Porsche so I just picked a spot to dump and kept it just under 150 so I didn?t have to use it. Same one in the Alfa isn?t as bad because I have more room. But would still like to see the difference in them.
