  Engineered Solutions for Racing
When you're an engineer and race for a lifetime you come up with ideas
to solve problems and improve the things you use.
There comes a time to build these solutions and make them available.   
We are committed to solving problems and creating quality products.

Made in the USA!
The Problem:

Hard impact on the frame bottom during a crash, compresses you into the seat bottom.  
The weight of your head, helmet and body act like a pile driver on your rigidly seated spine. 
The short duration, high G-force impact can cause compression fractures of vertebrae, ruptured discs,
broken neck, broken back and paralysis.


The Solution:
Two things are needed to reduce these Spinal Impact forces:

     
 1.    Compressible Material 
                The downward motion of your body and spine must be
                     slowed down during the impact.  

                802SAM Shock Absorbing Material in The Crash Pad works 
                      like a shock absorber with uniform resistance throughout compression.
         ! It's the right stuff !
                         
2.    Compressible Space
                     Your spine needs room to slow its downward motion.   
                         The thickness of the Crash Pad provides the critical 
                         compressible space needed to slow your downward motion.  


 

Fully Adjustable
Cut and Fit to tailor to the width and shape of your seat.
Layers can be added or removed for desired thickness.

Many have asked us about the Pour-in Foam approach to this problem.
We rejected that approach after we researched the materials.

Benefits of The Crash Pad:

  • Substantially reduces driver crash shock load and spinal impact forces.
  • Works like a shock absorber in your seat.
  • Creates the critical space needed under you to dissipate impact energy and spread it over a longer period of time.
  • Reusable - recovers to original capability in seconds – ready to go again
  • Simple - just put the Crash Pad in your seat and go
  • Take it with you from ride to ride
  • Removes quickly to wash the car- wipes clean with damp cloth
  • Adjustable - fits 14" to 18" width seats and cuts to shape.
  • Adjustable thickness - 1/2" layers can be added or removed for 1" to 3" thickness.
  • US Military testing found this material BEST to reduce the risk of spinal injury in severe seat bottom impact.
  • Proven tough, high quality outer covering
  • Does not support flame
  • Unchanged  "seat of the pants"  feel of the car
  • Bonus – it is super comfortable- eliminates pressure points.



    When you understand the problem,
    You'll want the solution.

Dave races the piano player to assemble a Crash Pad !

Cheaper than a helmet but just as important.
