For the main question, yes this is necessary. Between Auto-x and HPDE it is. During my last HPDE at Summit Point I was sliding around way too much. Seats, harnesses and a cage will solve this. As far as strength this car will still be used on the road for a while and will not be a dedicated race car until the K20 goes in next winter. I was looking at the Autopower line but this is the first site that I have seen that looks right. I have ordered equipment from IO Port before and cannot believe I forgot them this time. If anyone else wants to chime in with seat options or opinions on a different cage let me know.
A lot of you guys are saying cage+street=bad. What I need to ask is why? An answer without an explanation is an opinion. ThanksSeats will do most of the work, cage and street aren't a good idea. If your going to put in anything jsut get a 4 point roll bar with a harness bar. Make sure your head and body sit well below the bars. Nothing worse than a minor acciden causing brain damage.
hitting your body/head against one of the steel tubes is bad, m'kay? a cage tends to have tubes that run closer to your head then a rollbar which typically is well behind your head. that's the whole reasoning behind cage+street=bad.A lot of you guys are saying cage+street=bad.

hook a harness to a c-pillar bar and the first time you need it that c-pillar bar will crumble. same with those cusco ricer "cages".cusco/safety 21 make a half cage,full cage
they are bolt in.
depends what type of racing your are doing and what their rules allow..
if u want to use harness u can just get a c pillar bar with eye bolts in it..
or u can get a half cage and install harness bar..
alot of ways you can do this but its up to your financial backing and how hardcore your racing will be.
ya ... even if u have sfi padding all that garbage on the cage... your head and other body parts are gonna get jacked up... even with a helmet it can hurt.. now imagine getting hit with a bat in the head^^^
for curiosity sake. why is the cage a liability on the street?
edit: because you're not wearing a helmet?
