Roll cage was the first thing I thought of when I began the drag build 3 years ago. I bought 60ft of moly last January in preparation for the cage. It’s going to be run pretty local strip, Toronto dragway and at a ton of events in the north east. Most of which are NHRA. So cage is a must for sure.

Austin spoke to Skunk, it looks like their TB is a direct drop in for the cosy manifold. Time will tell if there is any truth to that or not. Don’t know many people running DBW TBs on a drag car. Kinda stupid if you ask me. But it does make my life easier wiring/custom fabrication-wise. So we’ll just have to see if im going to regret going dbw.
Hoping to have this thing finished for march next year for opening day.
