Arrow complete Revolt padding

Im getting ready for the glen helen race and did some padding on my revolt... and it was cheap, under 20 bucks...

I bought two sticks of padding and they are about 8 dollars each and used a bunch of zip ties....

I was able to padd the tubes next to the seat...
the tubes nest to the legs were the bolt is sticking out....
the dash board.... and the brake cylinder in case of a rollover..

the best thing was.... all for under $20 bucks

Re: complete Revolt padding

I recomend this mod to everyone, even if you dont race....

- the one on the legs is very important because there are bolts sticking out...
- the one under the brake cylinder needs to be covered in case you flip over to prevent hurting your leg....
- the one under the dash board, so you dont hurt your knee...

the trick on the dashborad one is rolling the pad like a burrito and let the lip come out and keep it rolled under the dash for more protection.... then I drilled a whole in the dash and put a zip tie trough it... simple and easy...

Re: complete Revolt padding

I agree, Every series I have raced requires the driver to pad all roll bars that you might contact in a crash.. Some require padding only on what your helmet might contact. i did the bars around my head and the Brake Master Cylinder.

Thank you Red Rock powersports, Harmon Racing Cells, Blackmore Sign's and T's, Psychoholic Racing, Lucas Oil Products and 777 Race Cars.

Re: complete Revolt padding

Looks good, I would move the zip tie by your right knee (by the starter button) you would be surprised it can slice you wide open, also I would take the spare key off the key ring and leave it in a safe place (I learned the hard way) good luck at the race.

Re: complete Revolt padding

You know what else I always seem to hit and it hurts like HELL??!! My right elbow, nearly every race, hits the F/N/R shifter cable and adjustment nut! Hurts like hell and I would hit it repeatably! So I went and got some smaller padding used for insulating copper pipes, cut about a 6" long piece, wrapped it around cable and associated adjustment nut, and wrapped that all with electrical tape (red of course). Works great and no longer do I have a throbbing right elbow after races.

Re: complete Revolt padding

lol........ no LEDs.... they look like tough
its one of those pedal cover kits that you can but at autozone...
the little circles are where the bolts are running troug...I drilled the pedal and bolted them on directly..... so they wont fall off...

I makes a big difference....
besides making the pedal bigger, it also eliminates possible slip from shoe to metal pedal........ especially when there is mud and dirt involved....

I have them on both pedals....

you can see them better in this picture...
