yes, they need to be connected to the cage. makes it stiffer.

Technically I don't think they have to be connected to the cage to be legal but if the opportunity is there I would do it.

i'm just gonna run there now and then not on a regular basis and like i said i can't have anything behind the a frames at my home track so i don't want to have to be putting bars in and cutting them out the next day all the time if i was going to do that i would x the frame and stuff too but it cost to much to run up front at wc in hobby but in des moines i have a better chance beings half those cars down there are no better than our econo's and you don't have to deal with 15 fast guys in one race with the 5 features they run down there every week
