Where is the rest of the roll cage?

 

 

It has the same cage design as the challenge cars. Ther is a bar under the dash and full impact bars on the side.

and hope your head stays below the string line from the roll hoop to the hood.

There is an option for a halo bar.

Looks like a fun car for the March event at RA when it's raining, hailing and a twister is bearing down on you!

 

 

like the Thunder roadsters, radicals, and FFRC's.

Little sticker on the side says ST2-R ?? Not sure how accurate that is, but I'd spring for one, WITH the halo bar.

Looks like with a 100% stock WRX 2.0 it would be STR-2 with a little wiggle room. With the 2.5 or either of the STI motors it would be moved to STR-1 unless you detune them. Weighing in at 1800 lbs means power would be low.

looks like dyslexia struck them, but STR-2 is a NASA class. 8.70lb/hp adjusted limit, tube frame based cars ok, etc.

I figured lysdexia took place, but didn't want to look like a bigger idiot by saying something about it. This is definitely at the top of my wish list.

The whole ST-2R was done on purpose so they could HINT at a class.

 

BTW, Jim had some great posters of the 818-R this weekend.

just what we need, more classes for one or two cars when there's already a great place for them to play with many others

Since it supports a Subaru drivetrain, one can easily throw the 2.5RS package in there and run a totally different class. My RS put 128hp down. Wonder what class it would end up in then?

being non-production or tube frame based it'll be in STR somewhere, just depends on final adjusted whp/weight numbers between STR-2 (8.70), STR-1 (5.50) or SU (unlimited).
