That is fantastic information... I have emailed various people trying to get clarification on this issue with bends in the front hoop.

Looks like I am going to cut the lower legs of mine and mount it to the scuttle area some how

I trawled through the drawings last night and the text and it would appear that the front legs can be straight and in one hoop,Westfield and Caterham offer cages with this fitted but there is a brace to triangulate it at the front.

I would be tempted to make a full roll hoop from the floor behind the driver braced to the rear top mounts etc to use for racing.

If anyone is interested in ordering the above from these guys speak to Paul. I can supply the pdf file quote and drawing if anyone needs them.

Cheers

Hi another update on possible suppliers for this. This email quote is from

http://www.tube-bender.co.uk/

It is for a flat pack of the cage we have been talking about but without the side protection bars, with a diagonal rear hoop brace and in 38.1mm CDS which was what I specced as I don't need it to be MSA approved but didn't want to use ERW.

Quote:
Hi Chris,

Thank you for your email.

The entire cage would be supplied in 38.1mm OD x 2.64mm Wall CDS as per your previous email. If you need different sizes it is not a problem, please let me know.

The price below is for the front hoop, back hoop, 2 connectors from the front hoop to the back hoop, the rear stays along with a diagonal rear brace.

It would total 290 plus 30 delivery.

If you would like to go ahead then please let me know and I will send you my Bank details. I will then produce my 3D CAD drawings and send them to you, just for your piece of mind.

Turn around time is around 3-5 days.

Let me know what you think.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Many Thanks
Tom Wood
Director
If your interested then please contact him.

Cheers

Chris
