Thought some of you may enjoy seeing some pics of a 8.50 legal roll cage I installed in a Hellcat that has been 10.02 at 138 previously. Also adding some more power this winter so it should run well into the 9's punkrocka

Pardon my ignorance as I know nothing about drag racing, but that is considered safe?
I have always been used to my fully welded cage and would not be comfortable with removable bars.

Clean install though!

I'm not a design engineer, but NHRA allows them to 8.50 and customers normally want them on this type of build...

Car and cage look awesome. But whats with the seat being against the steering wheel? Is it adjustable?

Very very nice. If you run at a track that techs cars they will probably make you add some foam around the drivers area on the bars.
