I'm not the Loring expert, but 1 3/4 x .134 DOM properly installed according to the rules will pass 400 MPH tech at Bonneville  :-o
My guess is yes  :cheers: :cheers:

Thanks for reaching out Wendell.
A 6 point roll cage of 1 5/8" x .120 is good to  175mph. 
Please go to www.loringtiming.com and under "how to race" you can  download the rules.
Contacts are listing on  page 1.

All the best,
Tim

If you ever go over on your head(God Forbid) you don't want to think you should have installed a better roll cage.

These 6 point kit appear to be just roll bars and not roll cages. I personally would not try to go 150mph in a car without a full Roll Cage...

Give these guys a call, They know alot about building safe land speed cars..
