For $2500 is it worth adding a full cage?

BTW, swap the tires out for running dunes.

Add lightness and occasionally death. I believe that's directly attributable to Colin Chapman. Shouldn't the dampers be attached to something at top?

Very cool however. I wouldn't bother with a cage. Some bracing sure if chassis flex is cracking the windshield.

Or just windshield delete. smiley

Those front dampers are attached. See the wimpy looking sheet metal tower around their backsides? That is the factory bracket. They could use new rubber biscuits though.

Ahh. I don't know why I only recently figured out how to expand pics on my phone and why I don't do it all the time. blush

That is much less sketchy than I expected when I clicked the link.... There are lots of bad death karts. That looks fairly reasonable...

I'd say somewhat reasonable for road. I don't  know why he's selling the dune side of it lol

Although really, I'm just glad it's not closer lol. And yeah a c5 would get me there for sure

Ya if that was closer to Ohio I would be all over that.  Looks like a TON of fun.

Anyone else notice the DOT 3 bottle used as a coolant over flow bottle?
