Guess if your going to roll'em at high speed without a seatbelt, maybe you should drive a sherman tank.
BTW, weight doesn't help as much as crush zones and worrying about where suspension and engine parts go during a crash.
Some of those big, heavy SUV's are driver manglers in frontal crashes.

: I shudder to think of what would happen to the occupants of lightweight vehicles involved in a serious high speed accident. I'll take my solid/heavy BMW anyday. I rolled one of my M3's at high speed, no seatbelt, no helmet, I walked away.
