Bee's Rollcage.


Just now I went to Jaguh's house and to see the roll cages with my own eyes. Jaguh had done the half cage and will be doing the extension for the front parts next week so that it will become a full cage. And the detailing job is still not done yet. And after testing it, I think there is a lot of improvement such as body roll elimination, stiffer body, and I can feel every vibration of the car.

Overall, I think it is good. About mass producing it, I think it will be a bit pricey coz Jaguh is using an expensive type of steel pipe. I forgot the details and the reason of using this particular steel tube is because there is a FIA rules stated about using the particular steel tube type for making cages. Meaning that the cages is somehow FIA certified. Lol.

And after talking bout the cost of making the cages with Jaguh, this is the design that I want for my half cage. It will be cheaper than Jaguh's one coz this design will be using less pipe, less bending and less welding job too. Anyway, this is a half cage for 808 sedan. From Australia. I'll be using the bolt type too.


And with my extra income of RM50 courtesy of the mag, I'll need to find a way to add my budget. Will sort up my stuffs that can be sell soon. Any comments for the half cage?

Wow alloy.. Not sure about this but alloy is very brittle and prone to break and tear.. But this must be in different grades alloy.. They are using alloy most probably because it is light. A high strength alloy must cost a huge fortune..

Suggestion use Black Pipe Grade AA.. This is suggested by a few of my friend.. 50mm in diameter 2.5mm in thickness.. size and look just the same like my Carbon steel pipe but its not FIA material and cant handle excessive degree of bending.. But if you do a single crossbar on the middle it would really increase the rigidity and im quite sure the steel can be use as a rollcage..
