Yup.. no point in having a roll cage in any car, thats why they are banned in all forms of motorsport including rally.
I’ve got one in my mini shell that’s got full bars and diagonals. It even ties in to the subframe mounting areas. It’s seamless approved tubing. Deffinately going to take it out now as there’s no way in any form of crash or rollover that this will help save me. It’s just gonna help my shell collapse in around me.
What a waste of money.. (joke)
If you want to fit a cage.. do it. It’s your car for you to enjoy as you see fit.. Just make sure to do your homework on padding and suitability. Insurance companies may not approve as there’s a thought that you’ll drive harder or take more risks with the perceived extra safety a cage may offer.
Some “look” at me type cages like the alloy half rear cage that was about at one time will NOT help you in a crash.. they may actually make things much worse.
A decent well fitted cage of correct type can be life saver in the right situation. Even if you just want the “look” of a cage please make sure it’s of high quality tubing thats seamless and up to the job.
