Doesnt matter man... just like on Mythbusters if you are trapped in a falling elevator... you are done for. force of impact travells thru the entire car man....

I walked by that place today on the way to the NY AutoShow... I laughed as I saw the insurance sign

The ISF......The perfect car for an enthusiast. It can be driven to the track, run hard all day , and then transport me hundreds of miles to my home in luxury and comfort to pick up the wife for dinner and a movie....
