At What Speed Does A Baseball Hat Fly Off?

Recommended Posts

Well today I found out it was 75mph.

Took missus out for first time in car so was giving it a bit of wellie overtaking and BOOM hat gone 😣😣

 

Back to tescos for another £2 hat 😀

Its not just about the speed its also about the acceleration. easy sorted though. fit a cable tie around your harness or seat. attached a bungee coil clip to your hat and clip it to the cable tie.

I find on coming trucks cause the most problems, the bow-wave of air lifts most off --- have my cap on a leash or wear my biggles hat with under chin strap.

 

Your fault any how --- the limit is 70 --- even in sunny Dartmoor 8)

Depends what ratio diff you have.. Could be over reading by between 10-20%. Andy and I posted a fix for that a few weeks ago (http://www.rhocar.org/index.php?showtopic=45988&hl= ) And see http://the-superspec-journey.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/

If you stick to thirty miles an hour at all times as I do your trilby will always stay in place. As a belt and braces precaution I attach it to my beige string backed driving gloves with a piece of string.

I always have my baseball cap on a "leash" and on the way back from Stoneleigh it came off my head once. It came off at under 70 but I may have gone a bit faster than that at times, and that was with no doors on.
