Rallycross rules for MR state. 

j. A non-OEM hardtop of a type substantially similar to the shape, design, construction, and weight of the OEM hardtop may be used if the vehicle is equipped with a roll bar built to current SCCA Hill Climb specifications or a roll cage built to current SCCA Improved Touring specifications or better.

 

Which bars would count for that? Hard dog M1/M2 hardtop? 

Also what hardtops count?

In reply to MrChaos :

You can't bung some muffler tubing in there and hang some coroplast over it and call it a "hardtop", is the gist of the rule.  If it is a non OEM hardtop then it has no expectation of safety, thus the requirement for a roll bar that does have an expectation of safety.

 

If you do this, PLEASE bring evidence of certification for the cage.

That, I don't know.  I assume you mean the $600 racing hardtops?

Oh, cool!  That would be an OEM hardtop.  The racing hardtops had no headliner or defrost.
