Post subject:  W1 and W2

After studying the rear of my car, I am thinking that if you have a 4 point rollbar like Kinetic sells, W1 and W2 tubes are redundant. Anyone agree or am I missing something?

I wouldn't want to build the rear without them as they help (me anyway) keep everything nice and square back there while I'm tacking everything together. They also lend stability to the upper roll bar mounting plate. Besides, the inboard sides of your roll bar mounting plates would look pretty silly without them and that little triangle of steel paneled to it. :wink: I personally don't see the advantage in deleting a couple of skinny 3/4" tubes. I'm sure opinions will vary though.

On my new chassis, I did tack them in just as place holders until I decide.
