Can I get away with running my cage bars from front to back rather than from left to right???? the cage will still be made of one peice (see picture) the red bar is continuious but running length ways on the car the rest of the colours are as show also as one length.

Your input please?????

For what kind of comps are you going with this rig..
In Skandinvaia will this not be allowed, because here you need a cage that has a main bar that goes over the driver from one side to another...

I read in the rules page for euro that 40x2mm CDS is minium OD for cage tube is this right?? (Can i run close to 44mm ish) and can it be chromoly or does it have to be steel??? And back to my drawing if I run the main hoop from left to right ( in blue) and then the red bar would be the forward hoop does this comply?? I cant find the pic's page for regs apart from the one in another post???

Arne how are you?? I have my formula cage/frame done and finished thats done in 48mm CDS seamless no problem but the cage design I have for my single seat for euro trial is hard to get it to look right building it from left to right!!! If I can get away with 42-45mm pipe then I think I can bend it up with out it looking rubbish!!!

You can use 45x2,5mm in the main bar, but it still needs to be from side to side.
