If there is NO way for your head to come into contact with the bar, maybe. I still wouldn't do it however. For safety, cars are designed to crumple in an accident.

Yea, it would still only be a bolt in cage though... and like other pictures show on here that they really dont help that much. So i am thinking its not worth it! I will probably just wait until i pick up another DD and go from there!

if you build the cage properly you wont hit a side bar. But if you do in that case, that really will be a least of your problem.
Side bar should be behind the seat....



Besides it is a lamest argument what happens when you hit your head without helmet when you have a cage... Why if you dont have a helmet and you hit your head on the B pillar or the roof , hurt less ?? LOL

but with a cage at least you do have a safe coffin around you vs the fragile uncaged body which will wrap around the cage anyway , just cant come further in.


What would you pick, one roll in the brand new evo X without cage?




or a caged ( old and not soo great) car without helmet with multiple roll ....

Damn.... that last piture scares me, but i think he was referring to the side bar above your head on the left running down into the dash and hitting your head off that. Not the bars behind you, if that sentence makes sense haha

if you hit a bar a front of you ... that means with a proper cage installed , you literally lost your head. Or it is still attached but at least they can identify you , because without the cage you wouldnt be even recognized.

I guess if your head travels that far up or left to hit the bar, with a seatbelt or racing harness. then you were going to be pretty injured anyway with head damage roll cage or not haha.. but good point! I want a cage just dont know who or if i should go with one for DD.

Did that 2nd picture Evo roll down a hill on the right? Either way, could happen on a multitude of roads... Scary sight.\

Sorry I'm not familiar with this, but I know some of you guys are... If you take your car to a strip and run 11's, don't you need to meet certain cage requirements (typically)?

If its below 11.50, you need a 6 point cage installed i am pretty sure
