I don't suggest racing with a stock cage. The crowd thought i was knocked out, but my head was pinched in the cage. I pulled it out and tried to finnish the race but they stopped the race. [email protected]#$ happens.
Glad to here you are ok. For some reason, I thought the Kawi cage was rated for a flip. I guess it needs some support gussets.
The angle of the jump seems to push people in to the little dip/bump by the pylon on the table top. (Edit) Looks more like a compacting issue on the table top, as the dip wasn't there at the start and may have aided in the flip. Racing sure looked like fun though. Hopefully everyone had a great time. Who won?
Wow! Glad you survived that one! There are some good cages out there..... HRT Motorsports, Funco Motorsports, etc. You could also buy the cage clevis ends and build a cage yourself or have it done locally to avoid shipping from the mainland.
The races look like fun! How often are they going to be racing UTVs?
Hey guy, Glad you're OK.....the roll bar can be replaced, but you can't. I wonder if all that's needed for a cage to be certified is the ability to support the weight of the machine when on its top. The doesn't help when a frontal impact like yours occurred. A person isn't going to know if they are going to just be placed upside down. Can't picture that scenario....would think there is always going to be impact forces from one direction or another. Anyone out there know anything about the certification process?
