How protected do you want your body to be when s**t goes bad? if the budget is there get an 8 point chassis cage, if not get a 6 point bolt in as a minimum. contact Bond roll bars they can advise and certify as well if needed.

there is a difference in a street cage and a race cage,
if your serious about racing it. the cage you would run in it wont be street legal.

Also I believe street cage have to have no obstruction to the door way...so no cross bar across the door...for quick exits if you get into a car accident.

11.00 and slower = no cage. Cross bars can be removable, but not for ANDRA cages, which 99% of tracks require you to have if running a 10.99 or quicker.
