Aside from a few connectors and some cable/ wire ties, the wiring is complete..so much for the 3day push lol...life, and rubber for my rx8 gets in the way sometimes......

Yeah I love car mags but it kinda miffs me that they stick to the few ubiquitous tuners. I understand its about the majority, but I find it a little redundant to see the same 4 cars over and over again.

Got the rear section of cage calculated...from main hoop back.no a pillar bars im lookin at 78ft or so..including floor and forward door bars...totals up to a close est of 120lbs...3/16" x5x5 floor plates...consulting my trophytruck fabricator friend on design and descided on a mitered main hoop with the miter of roofbar and b pillar buried in a node of 4+ other tubes each side...no continuous hoop...basically only about 4 single bends for the entire cage with a ton of triangulation all while retaining the back seat...constructed like half million dollar trophy trucks are built...getting a deal on 4130 so most will be 1.5"x .095 and. 065 wall...may mix in some dom tube as well...not exactly what scca wants to see in a hoop, but im going for non sanctioned club days and the design is surely tested and proven...and different is good...stay tuned!
