in f/c what is more comfortable?? easier to get in and out?
thank for info glenn tucker
While I haven't tried the h3 or any other device other than the Hans, I can tell you that I have had zero problems with it in my car. I regularly get out of the hatch on our car and haven't ever gotten hung up on it.
I find it very comfortable as well, don't even really notice it now that I have been using it for a year. I didn't notice it actually after about the 2nd or 3rd run with it, I really like it.
Never any problems getting in or out of the car. With the H3 your seat needs to have a slot in the padding to be comfortable. After the first couple laps didn't even know i had it on.
I like my HANS device very much. I'm sure the other works good but the HANS is very easy for one person to get on and off
my twin broher drives a jet f/c and swears by the HANS. I've used his hans a few times, and loved it in my altered.
You are welcome to use my HANS to see if you like it. Give me a call.
Same Thing if you want to try my Hans call me
I think I have a spare set of helmet clips too
just my opinion here...
i have a HANS and the deciding factor for me was looking at the dynamics... i know the H3 hooks too the helmet as well... but the HANS hooks to the helmet and is held in placed over the shoulders by the harness... the more force that is exerted on the driver/helmet/head (in a bad way)... the more force that is exerted on the HANS to keep the helmet/head in place... because it is held in place by the shoulder harness. it just makes sense to me that the more force that is exerted to pull on your helmet/head to escentially break your neck needs to be countered. and the H3 chest strap can't compensate for an increasing force... however... the HANS does. the more force on the shoulder harness.... the more force the HANS has to secure your helmet/head/neck. i definitely think the H3 is way better than nothing... but the HANS is 'dynamic'. the more force appplied in a crash=the more force applied via the HANS keep your neck intact...
it's also easy for a driver to put on and take off by themselves if they need to.
When people say H3, I am assuming that they really mean R3?
There is one big difference between the Hans and the R3 that may or may not be important to the driver in question. By design, the Hans can impart significant axial loads into (along) a driver's spine during a crash event. Whereas the R3 does not. This may or may not be a deciding factor for your driver.
If the driver has ever had past T or L vertebrae/disc damage or surgery (below the neck), or has had a history of back problems, then he/she may be further prone to aggravation or even additional inury from axial spinal loads. If there is any question, then a quick consult with a doctor or chiropractor might be a good idea.
Otherwise, both devices reportedly work very well.
thanks for all the info. pro/cons on both wil have to try both!!
maybe dennis taylor can answer this question. does the hans device have a dated sfi on it? and if so how long does it last till needing recert? question is from Eddie McDow in texas.will be doing some business with you soon!
