Pre Fabbed Rollcages?

Are there any SCCA/NASA pre fabbed roll cages for the third gen rx7?

Also looking for one for a first gen.

Thanks guys

There's also Autopower, which I think it a bunch closer. Shipping will be a big expense on a roll cage, so the closer, the better in that regard.

FYI - I have a bolt-in Kirk cage in my third gen track car. This is the way the car came to me. Were I to put another cage in a car, I would not buy a bolt-in. The issues I have with the cage: The hoop coming down vertically from the A-pillar bolts to the floor such that the tube is approximately 1.5-2 inches from the door sill. This arrangement makes it nearly impossible for me to place my foot on the dead pedal. The rear bars extend well beyond the rear shock towers. This arrangement of the rear bars creates two issues: I don't think the rear mount point is as safe as it could be (angles are bad etc.) and it is very difficult to install a rear bulkhead to separate the driver from a fuel cell.

After spending a season driving in SCCA and seeing first hand what happens to fast moving objects when they come to an abrupt stop, I would highly recommend visiting your local fabricators and have an expert install your cage(s).

Just my $0.02,

Guy

p.s. if you would like me to post a picture or two of my cage let me know.

S & w also has prefab weld in kits.

Although i haven't installed one yet, i did talk to a sales guy over there about an FC cage and they even sent me fully dimensioned prints of parts of the cage so i could be sure it would work with what im doing and be legal with what i plan on doing

I've never seen a worthwhile pre-fabbed roll cage.

Ill prob trust them to do get it done for me.
