    Is there a reason you want a Customs one?

    The MM works well.

    I wanted the rear bars to go into the trunk area. The rear hoop could go back further with the rear seat delete. So this means I will probably end up with the MM kit.

    Technically, a side impact with what you want would work better. The bar would have to go over near the shock towers and a bar boxing it up would do wonders....MM design wont save that are.

    Friends car after this impact by another member....

    Well the black car took most of the impact / damage. Our Guard Rails have nothing but cement behind them...so after the hit, he crossed from his lane to the far lane and had serious damage. The custom boxed roll bar save his frame come crushing inwards IMHO.

    he runs faster after the accident

    I will do some research on options. I would like to be able to walk away if something bad happens at the track. I will pay whatever I need to for safety.

    The best shop in SoCal that does the best bars is pretty much closed up! He does stuff for high end customers, but due to his wifes health issues, his talent & skill are not available to everyone :(

    He only charged my friend $1200.00 I believe....but it looks more then worth it from the bends ~ welds. No bars hitting the side door panels or hacked up panels.

    I may end up with a MM too....but doubt I will push for that ET. Like a stock looking full interior Termee

    LOL!!! yeah, I know. I was so happy with high 11's at Sea Level and the 1st taste of 11's at the high desert,...I wanted more, but easy 11! I was wrong though....hard 11's felt more rewarding.

    You...YOU CRAZY!

    Well I have not plans to gut the car. I plan to keep everything minus the rear seats. So I guess I will need a turbo setup to push this snake faster. LOL

    LMAO!

    So what was your fastest ET before whipple?

    Have you ran with the Whipple yet?

    Seems like Whipples can hit 10's pretty easily....even in the dirt of LACR!

    Says alot about that blower.

    Looks like your other stuff would be to par.
