There is a cross bar that really restricts rear passengers. If you dont want it certified for track use you ask them to leave it out?

I think (don't quote me) that you can have a removable cross bar for road course. I know it's not allowed at the strip.

No that bar is not legal, but Desertrose didn't have that roll bar made for the track.

So is the RPM design pretty much the only legal setup?

So far the RPM is the only mass produced NHRA legal rollbar setup available. Buy an RPM or have one custom built and have it cerified.
If any vert or coupe owners are interested, we are an RPM dealer. I have one installed in my '10 coupe, very nice product but as mentioned above its more than just plug and play. Expect to spend a lot of time if you want a clean install.
If anyone is serious about getting one, PM me with your year and model, chrome moly or mild steel, and what finish your looking for if other than the standard finish.

OK, I have to ask;

Is that road tar, or a fish silhouette behind your back wheel???

Both tar and a piranha clear sticker for easier clean up
RPM has a pretty good bolt in, but just like any job it's more work than you think. But it's easier than a build it yourself and track certified!
Call Tim at RPM tell him you saw Allan's vert and he will help you out.

I tried putting a roll bar on my Solstice for SCCA, and they refused. Said it had to be a complete cage, which meant destroying the instrument panel. I told SCCA to take a hike.

I do like the bar that Revolution makes. Does anyone know how it attaches and removes? Does if fit the ZL1?

There should be no differences with fitment from a V6 to a ZL1 in regards to fitment of the sports bar. Just follow the instructions and hope you don't drill a hole where it's not suppose to go.
