all the local tracks are cracking down on the 11.50 rule and roll cages

it sucks having a mid second car that you cant race..

I will not be ruining my V with a roll cage anytime soon.

I may have some c5z06 rims with 305/35/18 Mickies for sale.

Here's the only one I've seen, but you may not like punching holes through your dash.

That is hideous.

At a minimum, they should fabricate some sort of cover piece for the where the roll bar enters the dash.

What class? You "may" be able to get teched up to 168 w/o one. The structural integrity of these cars is better than most. It is rated tops, GOOD, in roll-over by the IHTS (or something). Most rules allow a roll bar OR car design; like the Corvettes get. PLUS, submit pictures of the 2009 CTS-V that the guy rolled at Road America last May, and they can see how safe it is in real life. He and his passenger, only had minor injuries supposedly. Lastly, all you need is a 5-point to tech at 140 in that race, right?

Meh... I don't think the GM engineers cared about appearance on these mules during testing in early '08.
