but dont get me wrong I have had to talk myself out of putting a custom cage in my car numerous times
there is some truth to this.

Chromoly is a great material to use due to its strength, but you are correct - it can be severely weakened through the welding process which is caused by letting it cool too quickly. The trick to 4130 is temp is heat treating. When done correctly, 4130 can achieve a yield of 150,000psi vs the normalized 90,000psi.

You can achieve close to the same yield strength as normalized 4130 with most mild steels.
