    Roll Cages

    I have an 06' STi and was looking at a four point bolt in cage for track use (just track days, autocross...) but I still want to keep the functionality of the rear seat. i.e. If I get into a wreck on the street, and someone is back there, I don't want them to lose they're head on that harness bar section... Also, to install it, do I have the cut the side of the seats or anything?

    Here is the cage that I'm looking at:

    Your car must be fast because I know here in the Jersey tracks your only required to have a roll cage if you are running 11's or lower.

    I do a lot of track days/autocross. Isn't mandatory, but I'd feel safer doing 145 with a cage... thats just me though...

    what you linked too isnt a roll cage. its nothing more than a harness bar. sometimes putting things in like that will make your car more dangerous and work the opposite. You need to search and talk to people who are seriously into competition racing and know about welding/strengths, cage design, etc.

    Contact your sanctioning body and see if they accept the design. They'll have the final word on it anyway so you may as well ask before bothering with installing it.

    You will probably have to trim stuff at the bolting points and do some creative dentistry, but usually the seats are fine. It's the plastics and carpet that suffer.

    Well, it's a bit more than a harness bar... but it's not a cage either. Simply a roll bar. Like was said before, check with your sactioning bodies reqirements, and make sure it's okay... if so, this will help in a rollover, but not a whole lot else. As for being able to use your rear seats with no problem... I'm not sure about that. unless they have another model for 4drs. this will most likely block the door.

    it appears that it bolts to the floor and somewhere near the edges of where the seats go...i dont remember any bolts on the floor or on the seatback though.
