You'd probably be better off asking this in your regional section.

You probably should choose your cage builder based on something other than who's cheapest.

I highly disagree. Cages are one thing where you don't want to skimp out on quality. Ever.

I agree 100% with that statement! If your planning to drag/track/go crazy.. then dont skimp! if you want a cage purely for cosmetics reasons.. by all means skimp.. however even then i wouldnt

Save your money and wait until you can afford a high quality cage. It's one of the most important safety items in a race car, and it's a huge pain if you have to redo it later on. If you're wanting to do this for a street car...no comment.

If you're caging a subaru and you're actually in vermont, go have vermont sports car do it. That's probably going to be your best option, and may even be reasonably priced since they have so much experience doing it.

But like the others said, find the best damn cage builder you can and pay the man the price he asks. If you can't afford it, wait until you can.


EDIT: you live literally ten minutes from vermont sports car. This is a no-brainer.

And to be clear on my map - these are all places that have built *logbooked* cages for either NASA, Rally America, or CARS.

You should go to Kale's Custom in Essex Jct.

Their cage work is on par with cages done by VT SportsCar and they are right down the road... They have done several logbooked cages in the past few months and a few other hillclimb spec cages..

Have a Nice Day? I would but :(

haha I know Joey, I am pretty sure he will never work on my cars again. We got into a legal dispute over a transmission that blew out a year ago. While time has passed and I hold no grudge towards him, it was kind of a bit rough. Joey does awesome welding and if things were different I would have him do it. He is the best for that kind of job and his own results have shown this. Maybe someday after time has passed and we both have cooled down.
