By the way, the 8-point structure that you see in this link is a rollbar, not a rollcage...

Click on Drag Roll Cages....
There are others of course,

The other thing is, if you're not a certified aircraft welder, DO NOT weld it yourself. Tack if together and then call a dude with a portable rig to do the welding for you.

I wrote a piece on rollbars a while back for the wiki. Then I retired and have not kept up with the current rules for this year, but the rules and procedures that I outlined when I wrote it will mostly be valid. Get a current N.H.R.A. Rulebook from Jegs or Summit. Read it.

Here's the piece on rollbars...

I'm not doing any serious racing with this thing but ya know when your a kid (forever, I'm 65 now) ya always wanted a car with a blower sticking out of the hood (for wood). I would normally never be able to afford to have one built and don't have the resources and knowkedge myself but ran across someone who is in deep financial trouble and had this motor built and couldn't pay to get it out of the shop. Fortune smiles on ya every now and then and I got this motor CHEAP. It's got a Dyers blower, Dart alum pro1 heads, Scat crank and on and on. All the good stuff. I bought it for less then you could buy the parts for. I already had planned on putting in a 355 with dueces for nostalgic reasons. I'm not real familiar with the ins and outs of blower motors but am trying to learn. This site is a Godsend. Lots of info and decent guys unlike one other site I got on that were/are a bunch of ******** dickheads.
