Re: Roll cage install
That kit doesn't appear to even attach to the frame, so it wouldn't pass. The roll bar would add to safety though, but I doubt that tech would be too happy.
Funny that you mention the nuts pulling through the body Joe. I started changing my body mount bushings, and three bolts were good. The rest were toothpicks, so that cage wouldn't have help me too much. My car body probably would have left the frame with any impact. My frame is now on the floor so that I can repair some rust and cracks.
That article addresses harness requirements meeting NHRA/IHRA, but does not install the cage properly to the frame.
I wonder how many guys installed cages in their race cars based on that article, went to the track, and were told by tech that they weren't legal and had to go back home?
