Going to have a functional roll bar that won't kill the occupants like the At-om will?

I'm guessing here, but 4 wheels + steering wheel.

Yep same useless roll bar with nothing to support the legs,I can see the feet getting punched down and the "style" bar pivoting off the rear braces and right into your head.

I think you're wrong, you're not going to bend that roll bar in a hurry, it's nothing like the unbraced Sonic roll bar for example.

Which is a shame cause I like the Sonic (but not this one).

At 1st glance I thought the side tubes tied into providing vertical support,one of the rear views shows its inboard of the tubes and supported inboard of the main frame rail on a thin pc of rectangular stock along with one small weld to the top rail which is completely unbraced where they cross).I wouldn't volunteer to test it out,I don't mind being wrong btw cuase I'm wrong lots but even I wouldn't build that.

I wouldn't want to flip a Sonic and I wouldn't even get into an Atomic but this one looks safe enough even with it's lack of central support .. I don't like this 'signature' roll bar overall though.
