  • ND Miata cage / safety build

    We've been doing ND roll bars for a long time now, but this is our first time building a cage in one.
    We wanted to turn this Miata into a safe racecar with a great roll cage, variety of driver containment / restraint devices, fire system and a go for some style point with a splash of metallic Orange, because life's too short for boring colors!



    From the get go, the intention was to avoid all the cost cutting mediocrity of the available GCC and MC cages and make a nice light weight cage with load paths that line up properly and uses all the headroom available in the DGM hardtop (not the horrible looking GCC unit).

    The result is this cage which came at a sub-100 Lbs weight penalty -





    Pyramid X door bars are light, stiff, strong and offer plenty of elbow room -



    How tight did we tuck the cage to the hard top?

    Lined up load paths and lots of headroom -



    FIA bars and complete driver containment for high safety factor -



    Center net hugs the seat for added support -



    The ND is a looker in stock form, and IMHO even more so as a racecar.
    Our OTS tried and true Lexan spoiler is there to shave lap times -



    Another view of the headroom, also we integrated hardtop mounts to the cage -


    Enjoy!

    Metallic Orange!



    We added one of our OTS fire extinguisher kits on top of the plumbed fire system -



    Another view of the elbow room, no shortage here!
