Default DG Motorsports ND Hard Top--full roll cage goodness

Well, at least some of the ND hard top questions have been answered. The ND hard top built by DG Motorsports will clear a full roll cage. I think the cage is built by Racecages (don't hold me to that), so we'll have to see if it clears Moti's cages as well. AFAIK, Goodwin and 949 will be carrying these tops in addition to Dave Green direct. Also NOT confirmed.

One thing to note is the size of the rear window. It's awesome. Big. Bigger than stock. And the choice was to go big despite the fact that a slightly smaller window would yield four windows to a sheet. I think this one yields one, maybe two. Doing the math, that means this window costs 2 to 4 times that of the old windows. But quality over price.





I predict that these ND's will end up on the track sooner than the NC's, simply because they're so capable.





Beautiful lines, perfectly proportioned IMO.





Look at that fit!





High and tight, just like a Marine haircut. That means less Origami is needed to get into the car.

Hmm, the angle of the rear window looks to be less steep than on NA/NB (more attached laminar flow).
This would lower the demand for a fastback (using the folding targa as design key).
A 2.5 NC must be cheapish to be considered with this approaching available.

Add a CX9 engine?
