    You want at least 5" (125 mm) of room from the top of your head to the bottom of the cage.

    Yea, a lower cage looks long and lean and mean, and it'll absolutely destroy the top of your head when you roll or endo your car. Been there, done that, very, very glad I had a helmet on. You'd be amazed at how far the human body can stretch in a good (bad?) crash. Even being held in tight with five point harnesses, my co-driver and I suffered from very sore heads and necks after the crash.

    Looks are not worth a broken neck.
