Miatacage has designed an adjustable fire proof door release/pull for your Spec Miata. These door pulls install from the door release mechanism at the back of the door and go up to the front of the door so that they span the entire length of the door.
The purpose of this is so that the driver can simply swipe for door pull instead of tying to locate a specific door handle in the car. When trying to get out in a hurry when the car is upside down or on fire or in an emergency we have found that panic can set in and then the driver can’t quickly locate the release mechanism to open the door and potentially puts them at risk especially in the event of fire in the cockpit. By running the door pull from the front to the back, the driver simply has to swipe at it with either hand and they will quickly locate it and open the door.
These Kevlar pulls are lightweight, adjustable and visibly easy to locate. They are 1” wide with a bright Red cover sewn to the outside of the Kevlar. They will not burn and look much nicer than the traditional method of cable or wire inside the car. They are adjustable and will work with any cage and any type of door bars.
Miatacage has an extrication exercise car that is on a rotisserie and is powered by an electric motor. This car allows them to put drivers in the car and simulate roll overs as well as other emergency situations. They use it to develop products that will help the drivers as much as possible in an impact as well as then extricate themselves as quickly as possible. Through the use of this car they have found that most drivers could not extricate themselves from the car in less time than their race suits fire protection would keep them safe. From there they decided we need to improve on some things and the door pulls was one of the biggest things that slowed the driver down and put them in danger. Great idea and execution! It's something you might not think you need until it's too late and you're put in this situation on the track. Don't chance it and get a good quality product in case "it" ever happens to you.
