Hmmm... Tubing diameter looks a lil small, or is because it's raw pipe? But exactly the concept I would "need"/like as far as the removal as well. Would this appease the more finicky tracks with their tech specs I wonder?

Well, if that rollbar is complete it is nowhere near legal. I would even venture to say that itlooks like it has the potential to cause more i jury than it may prevent.

4200#

I have some experience building a roll cage back in the 90s in an 1800lb mini stock asphalt oval car. It never went on it's top but was hit front, rear and sides on every inch in the 3 yrs a friend of mine drove it. No injuries.
I have an A10 HBM Vert. These things weigh around 4200 lbs. Track speeds 130+ and street speeds ???? On the track if one of these goes upside down it's going to take a lot to keep it off of your head. On the street you can't have the bar within reach of your head or your passengers head. Without going full cage I'm considering a custom that is a combination of RSR and RPM but welded in. Hate to do that to to such a nice car but.....

Bumping this thread for update. Wanted to do SCCA Track Night in America on the ROVAL at Charlotte with my 2SS Convertible, but it won't pass tech due to having not having a roll bar with the V8 (Could run a 6 without but not the Turbo 4), https://www.tracknightinamerica.com/...-equipment-car and https://dk1xgl0d43mu1.cloudfront.net...pdf?1488483974

Looking for something online that would fit the bill, and all I see is for Gen 5. Any updates here?

Just found RPM's website and this is what they are showing for Gen 6 Convertible, http://rpmrollbar.com/camaro-sixth-generation/

Interesting, Ty for the update! Rob had been very good at responding to my emails, and has not replied to my last (2) inquiries on the vert status. Not sure how I feel about that? Maybe it means they are hard at work? IDK But thanks again for sharing the latest, much appreciated
