Has anybody put a Roll Bar in their car yet. Found a couple of Vendors on line . Love the looks of Roll Bars in cars, and the increased chassis stiffness. And the perfect place to anchor your 6 pt.harness.
I installed a DRM "stiffer chasis" roll/harness bar in my Z06. I had DRM powder-coat in a crackle black finish. It is welded onto the frame in 4 places. With the C5 chasis being so stiff to start with, it probably doesn't stiffen it too much, but it is substantial in a FRC. A great anchor for DRMs 6-point belts.
If you just want a harness bar I would do that. Welding in a rear rollbar is a commitment.
Just FYI the DRM bar is not always solo1 legal as I found out the hardway with my '90 when I got it from them.
Autopower is always the best and there bars are always top notch and legal.
I put a welded bar in my 01, it fits real nice. I had it powdercoated bright red and looks awesome from the back. My Z06Vette.com window decal really stands out against the red bar. I dont do SCCA racing so I dont know about being legal or not, but like someone once said on here: a roll bar & harnesses are worth at least 50hp at a drive in cruise! :guiness:
I ordered my Roll Bar from DRM today. I may weld in a diagonal myself.See how much room I have behind the seats when they are all the way back. Thanks for all the input. I appreciate it! (I'll post pictures later)O-yeah. One more question. Yellow or Red?:-?
Hey Daniel and anyone with a non-stock seat! Great photos of bars and cages. I need help! I'm 6'3" so my helmet is next to the roof and SCCA wants it 2 inches below the roll bar which is what I prefer for hillclimbs and SOLO I's. So my best option is a lower seat. Has anyone seen any seats that lower a guy an inch or two? How long does it take to change out a seat if I get a non-padded racing seat for SOLO I's (my car doubles as my daily driver.
