    bolt in rollcage

    Im lookin for a roll cage that can be easily installed and removed for the 02 WRX. Somethin i dont have to weld into place, so when i go to sell the car i can take it out and not destroy the value of the car. I know cusco makes cages, are they bolt in or do they have to be welded? anyone know where i can get a bolt in roll cage?

    itll still save me from roll over even if it bolted in. but the reason id like to have a bolt in instead of welding is so i can take it out when i sell it. i talked to this girls dad whose a professional racer (he drives porsches and stuff) and he told me to get a bolt in if im not gunna be a hardcore racer. so thats the point

    A cage won't necessarily protect you in a street car unless you're using 5 pt harnesses and helmets around town. A roll cage is alot harder on yer head if you hit it than a plastic "b" pillar molding.

    Just my 0.02...

    the cage wont be for the street really. Theres very little chance of me rolling over on city streets. Its mostly for drag racing and when i do get into autocross. I will be getting a harness, i dont know really how many points it will be, i was thinking more along the lines of a 4 point, but i havent decided. And like i said i will put something around the bar to protect my head from hitting it, so i wont have to worry about that.


    but whats a "b" pillar molding?

    Yeah, there's very little chance of rolling your car by just driving it on the street but a roll cage in a street car is pretty dangerous IMO.

    No amount of padding will protect your head in the event of an accident. If you hit it hard enough you'll do serious damage to yer melon. No matter what you think, metal is ALOT harder than yer skull.

    Also consider that the SRS system in your seats might not function correctly if you have a roll cage in the way.

    Do what ya want...it's yer car.

    The "B" pillar is the pillar in between the front and rear doors (on a 4 door) or behind the doors on a 2 door. The windshield frame is called the "A" pillar and the one around the backlight (another automotive design term) is the "C" pillar. Sorry for using these terms...I grew up in an automotive family and worked @ an assembly plant for 4 yrs.
    cheers!

    yeh i guessed that much. The SRS airbags wont work properly anyway since im getting racing seats, so that wont matter. The front ones should still function properly
