With the concern of balance and weight with the E36 conversion. What do you think of rollcages? They add weight and offset the original balance. Then cages come in different configurations. Or do we throw it all out for safety. Or through it out for horsepower with a E36 conversion. Or would we have the perfect balance with a cage and conversion... hmmmm...

Rollcages are just good for safety reasons. Having said that, if you do a lot of trackdays, the cage will help the body stay in shape - prolonging the cars life.

Don't waste your money only to add weight and upset the balance unless you're racing loads!

Oh, and don't bother with rollcages unless you're getting a full strut welded cage - anything less is a waste of time [apparently].
