Al, in direct answer to you question,I really don't know.

What I would like to tell you is consider a local or known builder. I understand the need to save a buck,and I'm not putting down anyone who wants to install thier own,I happen to enjoy it.But you need good welding skills.

If you do build your own, I urge you to consider the quality of the materials you use,and not just the price.

Another thing I might mention,Some new guys install thier rear hoop too far foward,put the seat against the hoop,and use stock position pedal mounting. Some tracks require stock mounting,and some specify where the hoop must be. So,you need to know what the rules are. However,if there is no specification and your hoop is too far foward,(relative to the competition),you will be at a disadvantage. Also,the kits will come with instructions.If you don't follow them,it won't fit. So,you need to make sure that the kit fits the rules.

Sorry I can't reccomend a specific kit for you,But I'm sure some of the other guys will help in that area. Talk to a local builder,you have nothing to lose.

Good Luck

We used an elite cage kit from Stock Car Product. It was 1 3/4 inch 0.95 O.D. tubbing. There was no directions just a part list and a picture. It was still rather easy to assemble(this was the first cage we had ever assemble). The kit was specific to year and model of car. The only thing not done was the hieght for the main hoop. We also had to notch and cut the front and rear loops. I believe the going price is $350. This was with shipping included. If you go this route be prepaired there is a lot of wedding involved.

I got a cage that came out of my racing sponsors old malibu. He got out of racing and I got it now and it's for sale for $200.00 it came out of day motor sports. The cage needs to be mounted to frame and welded in. Located in central Ky. and questions e-mail me at

By far the best cage kits I have used are the ones from CSC Racing products. They advertise in Circle Track too!!

I have bought several kits from CSC ,they were easy to install , fits like a glove. They are good about sending extra tubing with the kit.they have great tech info, that always helps.The best part of it is the price. My first kit was a basic kit, 4 post cage 3 door bars on drivers side and two on passenger door bars dash bar, rear bar with x brace and i got extra tubing for petty bars and rear kickers and it cost under 350 dollars delivered to a business adress. try them u will like them
