Roll cages are a major investment in both your car's preparation and your personal safety - not the place to cut corners in a track car. Standard bolt-in bars are made to meet minimum rule requirements in most cases. 

Chassis flex is an undesirable problem with sedan-based cars, making setup and tuning imprecise and more difficult.  We have extensively modeled cages in various body styles to determine the best designs for each specific application.  In addition, our cages are tied into major structural components of the car, such as rocker panels, boxed unibody sections, and shock towers for maximum strength and safety.  These measures ensure minimal geometry distortion, allowing a faster car through more precise setup.

Our shop is packed with state of the art equipment so we can produce the highest quality cages on the market.  Curved bars are formed with a hydraulic bender; end mills, pipe nibblers, and standard tubing notchers and grinders are used to fit each tube.  Tubes are then TIG welded into position for the cleanest and strongest weld possible.   Where allowed by rules, webbing is added and lightened with punch/flare tools.

Prices start at $750 for bars and $1,500 for 6 point cages for metalwork only, not including interior assembly and cage finish.  Our high-end IT and BMW CR 8 point cages are $3,000 and up, GT-type work also available.  Please call us with questions or to schedule an appointment.
