    Only thing I came across were horrible looking show cages that looked like they would collapse if you so much as mentioned a corner

    Place in Southampton (XSport Racing I think thier called) are meant to be really good at custom fabricated rollcages, will be having words with them I think

    Doesnt seem to be anything out there pre-made tho

    Modern race regs (blue book) specify bolt in only, so whatever you want but bolt in would be sensible.

    With all that power and engine to bear in mind, your gonna need a wider track. Anything is possible if you have the time and the money!

    I think its been done well, no sign of dodgey bolted on arches, all looks well fabricated. Dont think it would work with normal sized wheels!

    Nah, AeroWipers suck!

    When I worked at VW we used to get people coming in and wanting to change back, the Aero ones seemd to wear out really quicly and I dont personally feel they clear as well (Hence Ive not got them on mine!)

    With that sorta power tho, dont think he needs wipers!
