Re: Roll Cage for 4000Q?
Good point. If the car is being used for auto-x, you probably don't
need one. But I am referring to highway driving where the environment
is not so controlled and the speeds are much faster. Even in road
racing, I would use a rollbar/cage in a hard top. In fact, I don't
know one org. that doesn't require it.
I must say that I am slightly opinionated when it comes to safety
after doing cartwheels in a G-prod spitfire with a 6 point cage. When
you lose control nothing can be predicted. Saying that a rollbar is
not needed because other drivers did not get hurt is dangerous.

Hmmmmmmmm..... If I get so crossed up to WAD my Stock car into a ball at
a Auto-x, I really need to rethink my hobbies. I've seen three stock
class Roll-overs at Auto-x's, 2 cars only had the stock belts and the
drivers were uninjured......None of the three cars had roll cages.... In
a convertiable yes you need a roll hoop, In a Stock hard top I don't
think so. Hell in my old Z-car which at the time ran is ASP never had a
cage in it and I always won.....
