it would have to be made. you being by miami should yield you alot of quality shops to build you one. try finding a shop that builds drift cars or time attack cars (should be real easy in south fl) as they are usually very experienced in cage building.

For actual rally racing cages have to be FIA approved consult rule books for a proper regulations on cages.

^^ Only for FIA sanctioned events.

SCCA uses a different rule set.

Rally America is seriously considering making FIA spec the new standard in this country. If you build your cage to FIA spec, it will essentially be accepted everywhere. Consult the rule book of the sanctioning body/bodies you intend to complete with if you are attempting to build to the lowest common denominator. Please remember that in addition to being one of your most valued safety devices, a great cage enhances the performance of the vehicle more than a merely adequit cage.

Well said.

Regardless of your racing activity, the more you invest in safety, the more perofrmance you can achieve. If anything from a peace of mind standpoint.

A good cage helps with a vehicle's rigidity and that translates into better handling.

Like with anything, buy the best you can afford. Especially with safety, don't cut corners and go on the cheap.

The required Rally America cage rules are just a few bars short of FIA requirements anyway. Contact Grassroots Motorsports Magazine. They're in Ormond Beach and should be able to give you the names of good cage builders in Florida.
