Drag Racing Tech - Roll Cage: What do you have? (I need one soon!)
08-03-2006, 11:54 AM
I have to get a NRHA approved roll cage, 6 or 8 point. I need specs from anyone who has them. I prefer chromoly because it is the lightest material you can get but if you have something lighter then let me know! I need brand of roll cage, what point (6 or 8), price and EXACT weight! Also, I want to install this myself so is bolt-in pretty good?

as big Mike listed,
I have the Stenod 8point chromoly weld in.
Bolt ins are NOT legal for NHRA last i checked, and are only legal in auto-x, and some road course sanctions.
As for my cage,
With the 8-point setup with rear bars welding to plateau area, mine weighed in at 45lbs according to the weight tracker on the shipment from UPS. I can get a more exact weight tonight, but this also included the mounting plates. I would think it was 50-55lbs, but we will have to see.....look a little farther down in the drag racing tech, you will see a thread about stenod's new cages, and i posted pics of mine at the end of that post. VERY good fitment!
Wolfe Chromoly 6 point. Weld-in definitely, bolt-in cages are kinda half-ass and the tech inspector may not pass you.

Wolfe and Stenod are pretty much your easiest options. I got the Stenod chromoly 6 pt. They will make your cage however you want it, and customer service is fantastic. Plus, wolfe has about an 8 week wait last I heard.
