Tubes need to line up with the other tubes for the load paths to continue. When they are offset like this they are going to shear/bend the tube in the middle.
I see... I'm old school.... put a lot of crush, bend, and I guess shear in the design of my roll cages.. You think I should glob everything into one triangulated point like Kinetic Camburg does....??? Too stiff IMO.... Rip your jugular right out of your neck.... Seen it at Laughlin.... One endo... dead driver... I bend the tubing, where others triangulate....

Robert, you're a good sport. When I posted the thread, this is what I had in mind with respect to Roasting our own.

That sounds more like a lack of neck restraint instead of too stiff of cage. I know that wearing one of them is considered new school though. I've seen more people with broken necks and bones because cage didnt hold up like it was suppose to than dead because it did.

You know.... I really liked my butt pillow (neck doughnut) because it held my helmet up, so I didn't have to support my head with my neck muscles... Racing down pit road was fun too....

I had a big bite on the ad for my old 5 car earlier this year. The person asked all the right questions, I thought I had it in the bag. Then the zinger came - "I really want to get this car for my boyfriend for valentines day, will you take 12k(which was half the selling price)??"

I had never been so impressed of a lowball, GF of the year material. You go girl.

The SCORE legal 2" roll cage with dead tubes on the B & C pillars, and the 1/4 Valance on each side cut from OEM bumper material are both pretty sweet details.

But the fact the chase rack was thought out enough to hold two tires, 11 gallon fuel can and/or 4 x 8 sheets of plywood, pipe or lumber just in case is really what makes this a killer deal in my opinion.
I've passed by this truck hundreds of times in Pasadena. Always wondered the deal was with it. Looks wayyyyy cleaner in the pics then it does driving by at 30mph.
