John’s Saab

After running low-11 second ETs at 133 mph, John came to Hanksville to discuss the installation of a roll bar or cage in his turbo'd and nitroused Saab. Although his ETs only required a roll bar, his high trap speeds were only 2 mph away from requiring a full 8-point cage. Knowing that he wanted to up the boost on his turbo, John decided on the cage option.

We made this cage from 1.625" chrom-moly which  was fully TIG-welded. We also installed the required window net and seat-back brace as part of this project. After the cage was completed, it was ceritfied down to 8.50 ETs by the regional NHRA chassis inspector. We then painted the cage in its nice silver color, using automotive paint and our professional-quality paint equipment.

Wanting to lighten the car, John asked us to remove the windows and door sheetmetal. We then fabricated custom aluminum door panels featuring bead rolls and dimple-die holes. We then fitted custom-cut Lexan windows to complete this car's transformation.

Jason’s Nissan GT-R

Jason, from Boulder Nissan, runs his GT-R at the drag strip and also participates in road course time trials. With its aftermarket turbos and custom tuning, this beautiful car makes over 700 AWHP. Jason brought his GT-R to us for a welded-in 6-point roll bar that blends road race and drag race designs.

When the car arrived at Hanksville, we placed it on one of our 4-post car lifts and wrapped the interior and exterior in two layers of plastic and weld/spark paper. This is a treatment that we provide for all of our cage projects when we need to minimize the risk of damage from the fabrication process. Placing the car on the lift allowed us to monitor the undercar heat while welding the floor plates, again to minimize the risk of damage. After removing the rear seat and the carbon fiber belly pans, we began work on the mounting points which are in structural areas of the rockers, rear subframes and seat risers. These points provide a structural foundation for the roll bar, rather than simply mounting the bar to floor.

The main hoop fits very tightly against the interior, maximizing driver headroom. We installed two diagonal bars within the plane of the main hoop, a road course design that significantly strengthens the roll bar. The harness bars feature bends to allow space for the seats to adjust rearward while still providing room for the adjuster buckles on the shoulder harnesses. This bar features NHRA-legal diagonal door bars with swing-out kits that allow the bars to be easily removed for everyday driving.

This bar was made from 1.625" chrom-moly and all of the tubes were TIG-welded, and features mounting tabs for the fire extinguisher and camera. After the bar was completed, we painted it black and then installed competition 6-point harnesses that required fabrication of custom mounts for the anti-submarine belts. Thank you, Jason, for the opportunity to help you with this unique supercar!

Eric’s Integra

Eric has a show-quality car that also runs 10s in the quarter-mile. Preparing to run in the Pro Sport Compact heads-up class, Eric brought his car to Hanksville Hot Rods for a custom mandrel-bent, chrom-moly roll cage, parachute mount and traction bar mounts.

Eric wanted to keep his dash intact, so at his request we routed the forward hoops around and behind the dashboard. We fitted the main hoop, forward hoops and windshield bar snugly around the interior trim, and measured and located the height of the harness bar based on Eric’s seating position in his race seat. We installed clevis-style swing-out door bar kits to ease entry and exit.

After fabricating the roll cage, the NHRA inspector certified the cage down to 8.50 and affixed the certification sticker before Eric picked up the car.

The parachute mount is made from chrom-moly, is integrated into the rear of the roll cage, and is removeable. The upper traction bar mounts are located inside the rear compartment, and are also integrated into the roll cage. The lower traction bar mounts are located on a crossbar that spans the rear subframes, adding strength and rigidity to the chassis.

John’s Supra

John's very clean Supra runs low 10s and is raced in various heads-up events. It is a true street car and has a full interior. After hearing about Hanksville's reputation for quality cages and customer service, John asked us to build a chrom-moly cage and parachute mount for this car.

Since the Supra has a low roofline, it was important for us to achieve a tight fitment of the cage inside the car. However, we had to be vary careful not to damage the headliner or interior trim while fitting and welding the cage. We also had to take care when welding the main hoop and rear brace floor plates, since these mounting points were close to the fuel tank and lines.

After CAD programming and bending the main hoop and forward hoops, we carefully fitted and tacked them. Extra bends were added in the forward hoops
to closely follow the curving roofline. We trimmed the forward corners of the dash and part of the underdash structure to allow the forward hoops to follow the line of the A-pillars and then to disappear into the dash through the speaker holes. The windshield bar was routed as high as possible, to maximize driver visibility through the windshield. After fitting and tacking the cage, we fully TIG-welded it.

The door bars feature high-quality swing-out kits, and we welded the window net mounts using our favorite low-profile, spring-loaded upper window net rod. In addition to the cage, we custom-fabricated a removeable chrom-moly parachute mount that is welded to the rear subframes for added strength. The parachute lever is also removeable, and conveniently located behind the passenger seat.

This cage was certified legal down to 8.50 and looks great inside this beautiful car.

After CAD programming and bending the main hoop and forward hoops, we carefully fitted and tacked them. Extra bends were added in the forward hoops
to closely follow the curving roofline. We trimmed the forward corners of the dash and part of the underdash structure to allow the forward hoops to follow the line of the A-pillars and then to disappear into the dash through the speaker holes. The windshield bar was routed as high as possible, to maximize driver visibility through the windshield. After fitting and tacking the cage, we fully TIG-welded it.

The door bars feature high-quality swing-out kits, and we welded the window net mounts using our favorite low-profile, spring-loaded upper window net rod. In addition to the cage, we custom-fabricated a removeable chrom-moly parachute mount that is welded to the rear subframes for added strength. The parachute lever is also removeable, and conveniently located behind the passenger seat.

This cage was certified legal down to 8.50 and looks great inside this beautiful car.
 


John’s Supra

John's very clean Supra runs low 10s and is raced in various heads-up events. It is a true street car and has a full interior. After hearing about Hanksville's reputation for quality cages and customer service, John asked us to build a chrom-moly cage and parachute mount for this car.

Since the Supra has a low roofline, it was important for us to achieve a tight fitment of the cage inside the car. However, we had to be vary careful not to damage the headliner or interior trim while fitting and welding the cage. We also had to take care when welding the main hoop and rear brace floor plates, since these mounting points were close to the fuel tank and lines.

Bryce’s Civic

Bryce has built a turbo motor in the 700-hp range, and asked us to build a roll bar for his car. Weight was not an issue at his expected power levels, so he chose to have the bar fabricated using MIG-welded 1.75" DOM mild steel tubing.

Since Bryce planned to keep his interior, he provided the interior panels so that we could contour the bars to follow the shape of the body, while still allowing room for the interior to be reinstalled.

We fitted the harness crossbar and the door bars per the NHRA rulebook, and the roll bar passed tech inspection down to 10 seconds.

Superrupair’s STI

Superrupair is a large independent Subaru repair shop. They also modify and tune performance Subarus, like their STI project car. Featuring a built motor, larger turbo, racing clutch and a great tune, Superrupair expected  ETs in the 9-second range and asked us to fabricate and install an NHRA-legal roll cage in this car.

Since Superrupair wanted to save weight wherever possible, they asked us to fabricate the cage from chrom-moly. This meant that all of the welds needed to be TIG-welded. We custom-mandrel-bent all of the bends for this cage, which resulted in smooth bends with no distortion.
