Default pics of roll cage for vert.

Hey Y'all

Anyone have a vert. with a roll cage? If so can I see pics? I' thinking about added one for the extra safety.

Thanks

Define "extra safety".
Are you hitting speeds/times you need it for the track?
Are you under the impression a full cage is safe to operate on the street without a proper helmet?

Looking for a little more support in case of roll over. Street use only.

I wouldn't suggest a full cage then. Chances are you'd smack your head pretty hard on the halo bar if you ended up with inverted.
A 4 point roll bar would be a bit safer, but even then you still run the risk of hitting your head if the car goes wheels up. Make sure you wrap it VERY well with bar padding. Bars/cages are designed to be used by people wearing helmets.

I'd look into one of these for a Vert street car....
