Default Roll bar angle

Possibly a silly question but does the roll bar have to be 90 degrees to the chassis or could it be angled forwards slightly?

Found various pics of caterhams with forwards tilted roll bars so can’t see why not but can’t see anything in the Iva manual specifying anything!!!

No restriction that I know of.

With it vertical to the chassis it is actually naturally being pushed backward as the upright will not be vertical anyway when upsidedown.

Angling forwards will help increase the resistance to the frame being pushed backward by momentum.
