4 or 6 point roll cage for the MR2

So after seeing the mess of the Megane that rolled on Saturday at CSF19 I'm seriously thinking about upgrading my current order from a 4 point half cage to a 6 point Clubman for the MR2.

Half cage is £500 fitted and bolt in so could be sold on.

Clubman 6 point is £750 fitted and is a weld in.

Clubman 6 point plus door bars is £900 fitted.

Thoughts?

Go for the best you can afford when it comes to safety.
Yeah I know, just being driven on the road I dont want to compromise it to much plus the additional weight as well given the lack of power from the car. Think I'll go with a 6 point Clubman without door bars.

6 point is obviously better and will make the chassis stiffer but adds weight. Having seen your videos and how much you push on I would personally buy the best you can afford as it's your life at the end of the day and if you were to go to the next level and compete the cage is all sorted. Get removable door bars and you could just put the bars in for when your doing a td.
By the way I enjoy your vids and threads so keep up the good work!

I had a custom 6 point bolt in cage made up a fitted by Fulcrum motorsport in Hull. I can highly recommend him. Why don’t you drop him a pm on instagram or just google Fulcrum motorsport. Mines the Pink cage on his profile.

Ordered one from Megillian also based in Hull but he's f**king me about and it's been 7 weeks since I paid and he can't give me a date.

Found these guys on my doorstep so going with them as they're competitive and build some decent cages. Few for the Clio actually.


Thanks for the recommendation though.

I was just about to suggest get 6 point with removable door bars too.

What else is there you could do to shave some weight off if you add the 40kg from cage?

Few bits mate. Front carpet and sound deadening, passenger air bag. Lightweight passenger bucket seat, OE seat belts, door cards will see around 25kg.

That 15kg gain in weight will be offset against the extra rigidity of the cage on track though.

It's always good fun trying to get weight out of a car lol hoping I can lose 150kg out of the twingo!
