Samir,

You should have more figures in your poll over the $50k mark.

way to much and its fixing to go a lot higher
got to get ready for NOPI next year

I will be making a Carbon Fiber 7point cage for the S modeled after the one(Chrome-Molly) that is in the JDM Cusco S2000 car.

Problem is I will need to make two since the first one will need to undergoing a destructive analysis to make sure the strength is high enough to protect me in the event of a roll over.

Safety is more important than looks in this case.

I think you may have a tough time getting a carbon fiber cage through NHRA, IHRA, SCCA, etc. tech.

I think NOPI will accept about anything, though. Maybe even balsa.

Its a carbon fiber reinforced structure over a custom bent Chrome Molly substructure. 40mmx2.0mm wall thickness so to meet SCCA for my vehicle I need to cover the original tube with enough CF( 2 layers with varying weave patterns should do it) to get the add strength that would be equivalent to the .8mm wall thickness I am lacking according to the rule book.

I've topped out my vehicle spending for this year and next. What will I do when next year comes and I spend more. I need a cheaper slower hobby like playing bingo.

did not get the Chromemoly one since its wall thickness was to small.

Ended up ordering a steel version with a larger side wall that has the required strength needed.

Still going to cover it in CF but no need to prove the strength increases due to the CF since the Steel gage has more than enough strength.

Those are fighting words

J/K


Cusco and Safety 21
http://www.maz-sport.com/cusco/rollbars.htm

Safety 21 is owned by Cusco

Cusco produces the chrome molybdenum ones (less than <1.2mm wall thickness)
Safety 21 produces the Steel versions.(2.0mm wall thickness)
Same design/layout just different materials and wall thicknesses.


NOTE :Some chrome molybdenum roll bars are not for competition
AKA wall thickness is to thin to give any sort of protection Looks only.



The chrome molybdenum ones are 33% lighter due to decreases in wall thickness.
Cusco (even though that are mandrel bent) apparently does not make it a point to ensure that the wall thickness at the bends is of uniform thickness.
Which is another week point beyond the reduced wall thickness in the straight areas.

Steel one was also a couple hundred less.

You know what I'm saying... I mean even a new 4-dr truck can sell for $45k++, so $50k just seems a bit low.

Plus...after the Z06 is sold, I'll drop several categories....for at least a week or two...lol

Ever seen these two trucks running around Huntsville a little over a year ago?
Both were mine, and I'll give you a hint on what was spent on the two of them. >$40,000. They literally broke me. Now I am starting over again.







Sorry but didnt have pics of the black one finished...

Chrome moly seamless tubing is the only way to go.

Not when the wall thickness is so thin that the chrome moly bars are weaker than the steel ones despite Chrome moly being the stronger material.

Chrome moly seamless is the only way to go. << yep that was a period . , but it looks like you may be comparing apples to grapes.. like paper thin chrome moly to thick arse steel...what I meant was go with Chrome moly seamless tubing in a wall thickness thick enough for it's intended purpose...I've seen steel tubing .125 wall thickness, bend and BREAK versus .080 wall thickness Chrome moly seamless under the same situation bend only...no breakage.
