    No pipe....tubing, preferably seemless around 1 3/4" with a .120 wall. I used HREW (with a seem) but I'm not racing or wheeling much. Search some other posts for more cage info.

    Yes most say you should use at least a 1 3/4" x .095 wall DOM. The best would be to use 2"x.120" DOM....

    For maximum protection, use seamless!
