    RIP.

    Now I'm scared of working on my car tomorrow...I'm pulling the tranny and i'm going to be under there for a while. Getting crushed by a car that falls is one of my biggest fears.

    I always have a hard, un-tipable object at least the thickness of my head/torso under the car. If it fell, it would damage the car, but I'd be ok. Usually a pair of ramps. (I put the car on jack stands, but I slide the ramps under the car as a secondary safety) The car isnt resting on them, but if it fell, they would catch it before I did. Cinder blocks would probably work in a pinch, or a large chunk of railroad cross tie.

    Food for thought, anyway.


    RIP man.

    i usually put the wheels i took off under the side fram rails where you should put the scissor jack to change a tire.
    on a lift, its a little different. chances are you're standing up.... and its hitting you on the head and breaking your neck before you even get flat on the ground :(

    Thanks for the comments. His girlfriend is going to be racing the car this year for the entire season. The orange civic recently made 777 WHP a couple weeks ago and they are getting it ready for the first NHRA event. Thanks again.
