Love My New Roll Cage!

If anyone is looking for a roll bar or cage, I just finished the install of mine, and the fit is amazing. I got it from S&W Race Cars, and they were great. I would highly reccomend them. My 10-point was only $249. I couldn't buy the material for that!

Unless you left a "1" off the front of the price I find it really hard to believe you got DOM tubing.

A proper bolt in cage is legal in the improved touring classes of the SCCA.

^True but not in any class that would allow a 10pt cage and it would still have to be DOM or seamless NOT ERW tubing. It might be for drag racing, I don't know if they still allow ERW, I do know they have a minimum thickness even in the middle of a bend.

I just ordered 6 lengths of 1 3/4" .095 wall DOM(twenty foot randoms) and the stuff still costs me about $5 a foot. Unless this company owns a steel mill and has the stuff bent for them in Sri Lanka by Buddhist monks you aren't getting a 10pt cage made out of DOM for $249

It's a 10 point cage so it most likely is one of the ERW drag cages. 8 points is the max for IT

Easy way to tell is see what the material spec sheet says the tubing thickness, .134" is erw. All the kits I have seen from them is erw. If he like it, great. Show pics
