Talk to Clifton, he approved upper a and b pillar gusseting as a matter of safety. Most NASA classes allow this btw.

Without even looking at the video...

I'm pretty confident the cage terminates (ie - ends) at the floor as would be required by the NASA CC&R. The *gussets* simply add reinforcement and rigidity in regards to the cage and how it is tied into the chassis.

Great looking car I wish we were coming out to Sonoma to come run with you!

Clifton can you confirm that Gusseting of the A/B pillar are in the current rule set either GCR or Spec Z. We are in the process of building our 7th Spec Z and our roll cage is going in shortly and we would like to add the gusseting to our design as well.

Thanks and good luck out West.

I am thinking really hard about bringing both my Spec Z and my customers Spec Z out East for the Championships next season. I don't think we will get more than maybe 5 or 6 cars next season out west. Its a start, but I want to be in a pack of 15-20 Z's!
