A MUST SEE! RPM Roll Bars on "Two Guys Garage" 5/28th! NHRA Legal Bolt in Cages:
[*]The Maximum Motorsports cage is not designed with the use of sandwich plates on the main hoop bolt down area. This is the area of the cage that takes all of the stress during a roll over and must be sandwiched for strength. [*]The RPM Cage comes with sandwich plates for all mounting points of the cage, meeting and exceeding NHRA dimensions.
This seems a bit misleading to me. The MM bar lands on the B-Pillar support using a stout looking bracket.
No backup plate possible or required.
Does your bar land on the sheet metal rear floor like the Autopower cage? (note the ends of the main hoop poking through the floor)
Not saying that the bar failure in the photo was due to the design. Installation may have been a factor, but I have to believe that the bulkhead is stronger than the floor sheet metal, backing plates or not.
Not knocking your design (never seen it) just looking for clarification as I'm in the market for a bar and the MM was on the top of the list.

2 Rules For The Clueless:
If the lane to your right is empty, you're in the wrong lane!
If you just got passed on the right, you're in the wrong lane!
