Roll Bar/Roll cage
#1
So I have been wanting a "Pro street" type cage for some time.

I have friends that can help me with the welding, but I have lots of other things to do so I have found a very good fabrication shop and set an appointment for January 16 to have them build and install the cage.

it is a bit more than I want to spend-their standard price is 275 a point
that is a 10 point cage would cost 2750.00 Chrome Moly is a bit more at 300 a point

what add ons or features do you suggest in addition to harness mounting tabs and seat back braces? I might be able to push the car down into the 9's if I ever swap to a slushbox and add a bit of NO2- so it needs to be capable of NHRA certification

Suggestions?

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

Jeff,
There use to be a shop here in Asheville, N.C. that did roll cages. I do not know if they are still in business. You might google around here and I am sure that Charlotte would have a cage shop.
If you do the welding and you do use say 4140 Chrome Moly be sure you anneal your welds when finished. You can probably find info on the net about that. I helped a friend build a Pitts Special stunt plane and the air frame was chrome moly and he had to anneal all his welds. If you don't you get hard spots due to the high carbon content and that leads to cracks or breaking in the event of a crash.
I will also check with a friend that has a 66 GTO mid 8's car with 10 point that I believe he got out of Charlotte.
I am not familiar at all with any of the requirements. Do you need chutes attached to the bar system? I know Clay has chutes he goes over 150 and I think he said they were required if you did.
It for sure will stiffen the car when you jack say the LF on his car the LR also goes up no twist anymore rock solid.
The first time he ran his car he dropped the hammer and said he could see the top of the tree as he wheeled past it. He stayed in it and it came down soft. He made adjustments to his suspension and got the standing under control. It is a monster and has a Pontiac engine that he built.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??
