flip - On the cages I've had, I want that side to be able to give a little more than the driver's side in an impact to slow the decel, you don't have that option on the driver's side where preventing intrusion into the cockpit is the primary concern. You can actually probably save some more weight by adding a NASCAR bar on the passenger side even with the additional bars because the rules typically allow you to gut the door when you do a NASCAR bar. But on this car they're going to be running like 150lb of lead to make weight so I bet it wasn't an issue?

This is the place for this thread, that "hey look we bolted on a bunch of catalog parts" forum is fun to look at but not exactly motorsports-focused
Definitely good information! Thanks!

What I love about VS Motorsports is that amongst all the vendors in the industry, they are one of the few shops that are actually involved in motorsports, sponsor cars, and race their own. It truly does set them apart from the others.

Every time I take my own car there, their vast track experience is very apparent when they are able to provide good advice about products and car setup.

I can't wait to see this beast on some of the local tracks! Keep it up VSM!
