Topic: WTB: Hans or Necksgen

Just getting started with a new team and want to buy a still legal restraint system.

Re: WTB: Hans or Necksgen

Honestly, you are not going to find one used.  That said, do you know about the "British Connection" of ordering FIA legal HNRs from one of a hanfull of UK sites?

About the same price as the UK sites. I'll second the never gonna find a used one.

We have a Zamp.  I do NOT suggest it.  Getting a second NHR as we run two cars occasionally.  It will not be a Zamp.

Re: WTB: Hans or Necksgen

I bought one here:

https://www.jjcraceandrally.com

Same HANS sport III device, much cheaper.  Keep in mind that the ones on this site don't come with posts (+$50). Shipping was about $35 and you sometimes get a bill from UPS/DHL for VAT.

Large seems to work fine on drivers ranging from 5'2" to 6'+

Each helmet will need it's own posts.  All drivers can share one HANS.

Thanks for the link, seems like the best price for a quality hnr.

Re: WTB: Hans or Necksgen

One thing to keep in mind when ordering HNR devices from the UK - the less expensive devices that were linked to in this thread that are branded as HANS over there are actually produced by a company called Stand 21 (https://www.stand21.com/products.r-2/ha … nd-21.r-9/).

They meet the FIA standard, but I do not believe they come with an SFI tag (should not be a problem since FIA standards generally trump SFI).

A race car exists only in two states: broken or in the process of becoming that way.

Great point though to make sure it has the FIA or SFI that Lemons and other race series need.

I purchased a HANS brand, not the Stand21.  Made by Simpson.  Mine was a Sport II.  It has a FIA tag on the collar and FIA & SFI on the straps.

Also make sure you get the correct connection points to the helmet your team is going to use.  Seems like the studs are the most common at a Lemons race.

Re: WTB: Hans or Necksgen

Having researched which brand to buy I ended up going with a NecksGen Rev2 lite.
At a recent race another team member tried mine on and liked it much better then the HANS brand the other team members were using and he was borrowing from them.

Re: WTB: Hans or Necksgen

Good choice!

Could you expound upon  your reason why you do not suggest this particular HANS?

Re: WTB: Hans or Necksgen

No sliding tether so range of motion for your helmet is 3 degrees.  Very specific adjustment requorements mean that bull-necked Lawyer on your team that really works out..does not fit right.  Those spring clips...gen one failed...all of them while gen II are just not failed yet.  Etc, etc.

It was cheap.  We got what we paid for in this case.

Re: WTB: Hans or Necksgen

There is a $199  'black friday' sale on the Zamp 1A HANS device, from PitStopUSA

At this price, everyone can have their own, the no-neck drivers can adjust their own.

I also see it on amazon for $197.   

Don't compromise on safety, buy only the cheapest you can find.   If you want to be really safe, don't go racing cars with idiots!
