Roll cage mounting points question

Recommended Posts

Considering purchasing an SCCA logbooked RX8 and converting it to NASA ST5/TT5.

Question about the roll cage requirements.

The NASA roll cage guidelines specifically state that cages should have 6, 7, or 8 connection points to the chassis (main hoop to the floor, A pillar tube to the floor, rear braces to the rear shock top area, and forward braces coming off of the A pillar tube that reach out to the firewall) (I'm paraphrasing here).

The RX8 I'm considering has all of these points, but it also has a small section of tube coming off of the bottom of the nascar style door bars and tying into the floor on both sides.  Is this going to be an issue / will these have to be cut off?

Nevermind.  I found the roll cage mounting point exception in the ST5 rules.  All good.  Additional mounting points allowed.
