Actually yes, I do practice getting out. I have it down to right around 4 seconds from completely strapped in, window net up, and hitting the switch. Now I have not tried it with my eyes closed, but that cant add more than a second or 2 which is still a good amount shy of the 10 seconds they recommend. I will try it without looking, but everything is within easy reach while I am seated so I don't see it being any more difficult. I agree with you about being safe, but if the thing trips every time I get a little wide coming out of a turn and costing me the race, its gotta go.
