Re: Hillclimb rollbar/rollcage

The noticeable difference with the roll over bar fitted to car 36 is that it is considerably higher than the standard Hawk item. Otherwise I would have thought that the Hawk item is strong enough judging by the thickness of the support frame. I think the normal rules are that a straight line between...
