In reply to jfryjfry (FS) :

Yea, i dont think the engine was at risk, but the temp seemed to have no ceiling, it would have just kept climbing. 

Agree, multiple, potential benefits. Bought the material to make it yesterday. 

Included in the purchase was one last stick of 1.75 DOM... which for anyone tracking... is now up to $300/stick(20ft)!!!! Beleive it was around $200/stick when i first built the cage. 

The kart is getting chopped. Doing away with the upward curving continuous A-pillar bars and going halo. The upward curving bars, though they got the cage away from my head, they were always a compromise. I never loved the way they turned out, but was running out of time and money on the initial build.

Some progress on the aforementioned chop.

Had to bring in the gusset bars a bit. Thou a tad unconventional, this worked... pucker worthy for sure. 

 

so much harbor frieght under enough strain to bend 1.75 DOM...
