[QUOTE=thstone;586640]I'd suggest that you really want the FIA bars (the two vertical bars that support the windshield).

That's interesting as our cars have high strength boron steel in the A pillars to keep the windshield from collapsing.

Not saying you can't be too safe however and from the pics, it looks like the boron steel is not enough.

I know from an acrobatic experience at the track that the windshield is very strong at least in a slow single roll over. In this case, no cage, just a brey krause roll bar extension. We walked away without any injury to us.
