Flamers' and negative comment are not welcome, but just wondering if anyone has an RMR roll 'style' bar they're interested in selling.
Thanks. I've done the research, and given up on the idea of the RMR bar.Carpe Diem , Kenny in the Kappa Performance forum is putting his Sky back to stock and may still have his . He posted a whole list of everything he is selling and the style Bar is One of them .
How come? Looks pretty nice.Thanks. I've done the research, and given up on the idea of the RMR bar.
They just said it hasn't been tested, and so, for legality issues, they called it a style bar. From the pics, it looks like it would be fairly stout.This was just for looks, it wouldnt help you if you rolled over.
Correct. This was what I meant to convey. I just didn't word it properly. :agree:If that cage punched through the floor it would be because it wasn't properly backed up or the plates were too small on the inside.
Sandwiching suitable plates on either side of the unibody sheet metal is equivalent to welding - you are attaching to the same metal either way.
Right, but from what I recall (I'm not currently looking at it), it wouldn't pass any proper tech inspection. I don't think it has any lateral stabilizers, so it'll just fold over in a rollover...They just said it hasn't been tested, and so, for legality issues, they called it a style bar.

I believe your recollection is correct. This bar is strictly for looks, and if you were to get upside down, it could fold over on top of your head. It is definately not for tracking, though some have gotten away with using it for HPDE schools.Right, but from what I recall (I'm not currently looking at it), it wouldn't pass any proper tech inspection.

Here here good chap!I have one installed. It's two primary mounting bolts are the two top seat belt mounting bolts and there are a couple bolts on each side that mount a bracket from the bar, down into the back side of the trunk wall behind the seats. As far as the tulip goes, the two flaps are removed because they can't operate as designed with the bar in the way. They are what gets cut to fit in around the bar and for a compression pin to hold them in place while the top is down. You have to pull the flaps off for the top to go up. I really like mine, but would I expect it to hold up in a roll over? most likely not, but then again I do nothing with mine that a 5 star rollover rated car should flip (aside from a freak accident). To add another point not having one there won't help in a roll over either.
I think you made the right choice. The bar has no forward support and very little vertical support to keep it from causing serious injury. This forum has had a few roll overs and the roll over brace has done pretty good and doesn't fold over. My 69 Camaro has an 8 point ChassisWorks bar in it. When I used to street race in California my 70 Camaro had a legal bar in it. If somebody wants to put in a fake bar, then I agree with Bill about PCV pipe.Thanks.
