Hi Erik,

Good cage, nice car . Do the front braces join near the centreline of the car and connect to the front frame? Also, It might be worth cross bracing the roof bars as at the moment everything forward of the rear hoop can lozenge due to a non-frontal impact.
Why not do away with the short strut from the front leg mounting point up to the suspension leg brace and extend the door cross brace up to the suspension strut top? That will nicely triangulate everything on that elevation drawing. I am always wary of making cage connections into the mid point of the bars as it puts a bending moment into the connected bar whereas all the connections should be at node points to maximise the bar section properties.
