I don't think so

This thing is small, and probably light, and it has a small frontal area, but it's not very aerodynamic.

Is the sunroof large enough to clear an ejection seat? That may be your only chance at surviving a crash in this thing.

Good idea! You could probably jury rig a system using an airbag sensor from a newer car.

Hey, welcome ketelOne! (Why don't you post a brief "hello" in the introductions forum and tell us a bit about your car & your mpg goals.)

Cool car. Have to read that one in more detail. Gotta run now, however.

Three wheelers are a rollover waiting to happen. 150 mph three wheelers even more unstable. A Hayabusa engine in that thing would make it a death trap, if it's not already.
So? Haven't you ever heard?

Death trap = FUN!

I ♥ my GT6.




Yes, the above was said in a slightly mocking manner.

In all seriousness, that car could use a good roll cage. Would make it have some semblence of safety. As it is, it's about like a motorcycle.
