New Roll Cage for the Scat Pack!

Forest Fincher Fabrication Dodge 8.50 Scat Pack Challenger Roll Bar Cage

As the Scat Pack continues to go faster and faster, we quickly approached the legal limits of the old roll bar we had in the car. Our last setup was a 6 point which was only rated to 135 miles per hour. Once you exceed that speed, you enter into a whole new level of safety requirements that the NHRA enforces. Since we are now approaching 150 MPH, it was time to do some upgrades and stop getting booted from the tracks we visit.

The biggest hurdle to overcome was the roll cage. The NHRA requires that a full 8 point cage be installed and inspected, and so we began looking for options. After multiple failed attempts to get this handled in the Pacific Northwest, we were actually considering sending the car to California to have the work done. But then I ran across some pictures online… Being a huge Dodge Demon fan, I was intrigued to see a Facebook post picturing a brand new Demon getting a roll cage. Upon further reading, I found that the shop doing this work (Forest Fincher Fabrication) was only 2 hours from me. After talking to several of his previous customers, I found that they were all very pleased with his work and highly recommended him.

After getting in touch with the fabricator it was a quick and easy process to get the ball rolling. He ordered the steel and all necessary parts, and before I knew it I was dropping the car off. Within days, he was sending me updates with progress pictures. Some of which might have left some people feeling a little queasy, since to do this job right, the windshield and entire dash needs to be removed. But when it all came back together it was a sight to behold. The shape of the bars wrap perfectly around all interior pieces and the whole thing just looks nice and tight. Almost like it is supposed to be there.

For anyone looking to take their car to the next level, I definitely suggest that you look up Forest Fincher Fabrication. He is located in Washington State and the quality of his work is worth every bit of traveling you may do to get your car here to the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
