Here are a few more pics off the cage install from the other day... We are bolting the cage in as per the instructions, and then will weld it down at all the plated areas... After welding it down, the bolts will be removed one at a time and the nuts replaced with new Nylock nuts to prevent backing off and creating rattles...

There are backer plates for all of the interior plates... You can see one in the wheelwell, Drilling all this out and getting it lined up so it bolts right up is a chore, but not too bad if you measure three or four times and drill it once...

This cage is quite extensive and very well built... With just the wheel well portion bolted on, there was no movement at all... By the time we get the cross bars bolted and welded in, the halo, the downtubes, the door bars and the rocker bars all welded in, this thing will be super rigid..

One of thee pics shows the metal plate riveted on that is the certification plate... TrackSpec Motorsports offers a money back guarantee, if it doesn't pass tech, they will buy it back... I have no doubt this bad boy will pass tech with flying colors...

Due to undulations in the floor pan, RPM and TrackSpec Motorsports provide spacer bars to fill in the gaps... It's coming together...

If the car feels like it is on rails, you are probably driving too slow. -Ross Bentley

Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

If you can turn, you ain't going fast enough...
