I wouldn't ever get in one of those things, they're a death trap. We reverse engineered one where I used to work (composite vehicle chassis development) and it was shocking. Basically thin wall 1" box section welded by blind monkeys with some plastic panels bolted on, a 30mph crash results in the rear bumper 2 feet from the front bumper!
