Went and picked up the tubing this morning, crawled into what was once the backseat like a Cirque De Solie acrobat and figured I could get the torch up enough on one side to feed it from the other side and actually filled it all in anyway.

Should pass no issue now.




I hope

My question was asked by someone else in here but never really answered. Converting a 6 point moly to a 10 point. My existing door bars are the correct height and welded to the frame rail. Can the new A-post bars come down and be welded to the frame right in front of the existing door bar? Or I could actually notch the A-post bar and contact the door bar and frame together. Is this a legal connection or do I have to cut the door bar out and re-connect it to the A-post bar after it's in? Thanks for the help, hope I explained this clearly.

I outlined the bar in question in red in the picture below. I am converting a 10pt to 25.5 and was wondering the specs of this bar.
What are the rulings for this bar? does it have a certain location it needs to be in comparison to the driver? I see some really close to the main hoop and some are farther out, just wondering the story on this one, and no I won't buy the book.
Thanks

I still don't get why you don't want to get the book, but presumably you are working with someone on the chassis that has it?

As far as the position of that bar, this was discussed recently in this thread:
http://www.yellowbullet.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=167144 - starting at post #937

It is clear to me that even with the allowance for only the "forehead" part of the helmet, many cars do not pass this rule. Next time you are watching NHRA Pro Stock on TV look how far back their FC cage bars are.

Cool thanks for the link/info, that is how I thought it was supposed to be but as you said from all the cars I've seen around told me otherwise!

"When required, the Forward Outer Funny Car Cage Bar (#40A) and the Forward Inner Funny Car Cage Hoop (#41B) must be fully forward of the driver’s helmet."

Ok installing a MS cage and plan on getting a 8.50 cert, buy was wondering if I can TIG the visible welds and mig the hard to reach places. I would rather look at a TIG weld than a mig weld, but want to make sure it will pass. Otherwise I'll just mig the whole thing. Thanks.
