Default Kurrent Kart Kuestions

The car is awesome! Plan and simple, stock miata suspension included is amazing when you remove 500lbs or so. This is how it sits. I know needs more low.


But her is my question, I'm putting roll bart in it. It will have hoop and two to the back, simple. But I have options on where to go when I go to the front. Everyone goes to plate on floor but why, because they have doors. The structural part of a miata is the door sill, should I go to it? Or go strait to the door jam? Or floor like everybody else?




So Red hoops stays, green to door jam, Orange to door sill, or blue to conventional spot on floor.

The white supremacist baiting title, spelling mistakes, and potato edited pictures aren't going to help you get a good response.

I would place the hoop in a location that gives you lots of interior room, and gusset it to the door frame since you're not limited by any soft or hardtop constraints. The door bars should go to the door frame up front for maximum rigidity, again, where it gives you a decent combination of interior room for flailing body parts and access to the beefiest part of the unibody. Put the tubing in a nice spot and use gusseting and beefy mounting plates to ensure good rigidity and crashworthiness. Mounting door bars to the floor is the easy way out.

I would go blue, but make it land up on the lower sill. I don't know what it's called.

ps, that is a pretty bad title.

Alliteration is not a crime!

404-Racism not found. But I'm not actively looking for it either.

So this is the current thought. Back bars go from hoop to suspension mount area on "frame". This is where hoop mounts and doors get reinforced.

You should really consider investing in a real camera or a new phone.
