I know. I was just posting it for info.DansSlk said:You know that i was not dis-agreeing with you in my last post right easty i just meant that they probably share the same chassis as our cars do.
Thanks for the clarification easty i also don't have the foggiest idea about car design i just work on them. The A-frame in the car already must have a considerable amount of strength just in case the cars ends up bottoms up but i see your point about the extra confidence i suppose is the word i want that having a roll cage would bring the driver.easty said:No sorry, I dont wan't to confuse the two. The roof if tied in correctly aids the rigidity of the car and makes it handle better. A roll bar is an extra safety measure. I'm sure it adds stiffness to the car if attached correcly. but roll bars are specifically for safety. That's why pretty much every racing category and race spec requires roll bars installed. Not that I know anything about car design.
Your idea about having a manual remove and store roof is the popular choice for cars like the elise and s2000, where a hardtop is required for some racing. people have a hardtop in the garage and put clip it on for tracks days. Thats my ideal for a Special edition SLK.
