Your significant other can only be mad for a while but your car can be slow forever.
The perfect race car is the fastest thing on the track and then explodes after crossing the finish line.
Why do you want a roll cage? Is this for a Destruction Derby Car or your Daily Driver?
Hi i just want to know if Roll Cage is illegal thanks
Better be for style points
-25 points for being a ricer if the cage is not required or certified from a motorsports sanctioning body in North America. Cages don't belong on the street period.
Rice is life
What if one drives his 9sec drag car on the street? Going to guff him because hes got a cage?
If a car is shows that a solid effort was made, and the car is reasonably well executed I can respect that. Even if it's not my cup of tea..
The cage makes me feel safer.
A cage is only one component of a car's safety system. A cage become a huge safety hazard for the driver and passengers unless it is used in conjunction with all the other adequate safety devices, helmet, harness, seat etc. Next time you sit in your car take a good, hard look at the tubes near your body and think what would happen if they made contact at any speed.Cages don't belong on the street, period.
thanks for the concern.I'll check it out again more carefully but looking yesterday I would have to get thrown forward past the steering wheel into the side or tossed up off the seat to the top of the door to make contact.In any case I think a collision hard enough for the cage to seriously hurt me will mess me up pretty bad without it too.I'm now kind of leaning towards removing it. Plus weight savings without it.

No. Your car is designed to protect you by reacting to impacts in a predictable manner that doesn't involve a cage. I can't say if a cage will lessen or increase your chances or severity of injury because it's untested. A cage is designed to protect occupants in conjunction with a fixed back seat and harness. On the street YMMV. I don't think it automatically becomes a death trap, unless it intrudes in the cabin space a great deal, but you inevitably assume the risk of making contact with it during a collision, and it will not feel good if you do. A cage without door bars won't do much unless you roll over, something modern cars are already designed to survive, unless you are going at race car speeds, in which case a roll cage gets to do its job.
My car is a little tin can and would most likely kill me if I hit or got hit at 100km/hr. I wouldn't trust it in a roll over either.I guess my view on the roll cage is a little different since I'm kind of short my head is nowhere near the bar.So when I remove the roll cage are there any other options for increasing safety in case of an accident?
1) Don't crash2) Buy a car that's safeYou'd be surprised how far your head will travel in a collision at a decent speed, add in potential intrusion into the passenger compartment and your head could be making sweet love to that bar quicker than you think.Have you considered buying a Volvo?
