Damn. Now I feel stupid for posting this. Sorry guys.

Dont feel stupid, most of the cages on that site are pretty extreme. Unless thats what your looking for its not going to give you any ideas for your new cage.

Heres one I had stored on my hard drive iirc its from manafre website. The only thing I would change would be to remove the forward cross reinforcement going over the front compartment.

Are you incorporating your stock roll bar ? While your there have him fab up some nice bucket seat mounts!!!!

slightly offtopic.

i notice that most of the cages i see on US websites are 3 hoop designs, while everyone in Australia builds their cages with the two front hoops, and diagonal rear stays, claiming that if you don't have the diagonal rears, the cage will just fold up, due to poor triangulation.

how true is this?

Probably depends on the speed of the flop. I plan to gusset the one I am doing and add some triangulation in the top.

I have a cage in a drag car that has 0 triangulation in it and NHRA tells me I am safe to 175mph with it. :meh:
