2021-01-01 - Roll Cage Tabs

Q.
Looking to add tabs to connect my A-Pillar bars to my A-Pillar. I would like to make the tabs ~10" long. However 3.2.11.2 states tabs can be 6" max length with max 2 tabs in any 36" of tube. If this is the only tab in 36" of tube can I make it 12" long or do I need to make two separate 6" plates that are say 1/4" apart. Either way is fine, just want to make sure I'm not taking the rules outside the spirit of their design.

A.
Please use two separate tabs per side, max 6" each, to attach your A pillars to each side of the car.


2022-01-23 Update
Per our BCCR:
3.2.10.2.The total number of mounting points does
NOT include welded tabs connecting any
hoop to the body. A “tab” is defined as being
not greater than 3/16” thick steel plate, no
longer than six inches (6”), and a maximum of
two (2) tabs may be placed within any 36” of
tube.

Additional tabs and/or tabs exceeding allowable dimensions will be charged materials points
