2020-11-12 - Roll Cage Bars Behind Main Hoop

Does an arrangement where two tube are added to the backstay bars such that there is one diagonal, and one horizontal tube between the attachment points of the backstays satisfy this rule? See attached pdf for visual representation.
Does the horizontal tube have an additional points charge as a strut tower brace?  If so, do you consider shock absorber mounts as equivalent to strut towers?
Rear Shock Tower Brace Diagram

Any horizontal bar, running between the back braces off the "B" pillar hoop, that is within 12 inches of the strut towers will be considered a strut brace.  Shock absorber mounts are equivalent for this purpose.
