Im looking for “streetable” 4pts rollbars that I can turn into 6pts or even 8pts later down the road. Theirs look like a good alternative to me, because points were door bars go are low enough and away from making any harm during street use.

Has anyone had experience with these guys?

That was definutely made for comfort and looks, not safety. The X brace has bends in it, which is a major no-no - would not pass tech in the club I race with, much less professional motorsports.
And those A pillars that are bent to clear the dash - that’s just laughable. Would fold up like a cheap suit during a rollover.

HG Motorsports has a nice 4 point bolt-in. I believe there are others as well. I would start with a 4 point that has good harness attachments. Then when you’re ready for a 6 point you can add the A pillars and door bars.

They do mention on their website that :

“NASA Racing spec w/straight leg version (**as of 2016.5 rulebook, not sanctioned)”

Not sure if that makes any difference.

Gotcha, yeah I would imagine that the NASA legal version doesn’t have all those bends in it. It would also require permanent door bars made up of at least 2 tubes.

Here is my NASA legal cage built just over a year ago, before paint and finish work.

I have a Titan Motorsports one that I will be selling soon.  I'm not sure I have all the bolts right now though.

Looks good but like Elf_Cruiser said the major bracing points should be straight, bends are the weak links.

For street/mild track its probably better than nothing however proper tracking or Drag you would want somthing more substantial.

Ive tried searching HG motorsports for their bolt in cage, that is probably more practical especially their shop car with the double X brace and looks mint finished in raw with a clear coat!

Also look at Buschur Racing's Bolt in Cage - this was the post on how i stumbled across GTR heritage forum
