With drag radials you can break into the upper 12s.

Thanks Falundir. No way with street tires? Is there other bolt-on mods you would add that would be easy to R&R, i.e.; like the CAI, etc. if I were to visit a dealer for warranty work possibly related to that problem? I already know my Hotchkis springs and my Pfadt ZL sways would not be worth taking out in case of a strut failure, which, I would accept. Any other ideas? Thanks.

[QUOTE=Allanski;6840818]It is the RPM bolt in 6 point roll cage - mine is chrome moly IOM paint. Best to contact Tim and tell him Allan with the convertible sent you! You have options when you order based on want you want. Have fun

Alan, if you don't mind a few questions; When you remove it are there mounting brackets sticking out , or anything else that impacts the seating? When it's in, do you have to remove panels or anything?

Mine is a 6 point. An 8, 10 or 12 point requires the extra mounting at the front for faster cars.
I do not remove it. I bought a removable in case I sell the car or put it back closer to stock. You have to cut carpet and rear door panels (I bought some used)
Whether you call it a roll bar or cage this RPM is certified for the track.

Just a pet peeve of mine. Like people calling nitrous "NAWS" or "nitros".


From the NHRA book:

Quote:
4:10 ROLL BAR
All roll bars must be within 6 inches of the rear,or side, of thedriver’s head, extend in height at least 3 inches above the driver’shelmet with driver in normal driving position or bewithin 1 inch ofthe roof/headliner in the area above the driver's helmet, and be atleast as wide as the driver's shoulders or within 1inch of thedriver's door. Roll bar must be adequately supported or cross-braced to prevent forward or lateral collapse. Rearbraces must beof the same diameter and wall thickness as the rollbar andintersect with the roll bar at a point not more than 5 inches from thetop of the roll bar. Crossbar and rear braces mustbe welded tomain hoop. Sidebar must be included on driver’s side and mustpass the driver at a point midway between the shoulder and elbow. Swing-out sidebar permitted. All roll bars must have in their construction a cross bar for seat bracing and as the shoulder harness attachment point; cross bar must be installed no more than 4 inches below, and not above, the driver’s shoulders or to side bar.
Quote:
4:11 ROLL CAGE
All cage structures must be designed in an attempt to protect the driver from any angle, 360 degrees.

Raced mine this past Sunday. And also watched a friend race a 14 ZL1 vert with 3 miles on it.

My best was a 12.5. His best was a 12.7 bone stock. With a 1.8 60 foot. I'll get my slip and video up soon.
