The second I saw the "cage" of the car I had a big complaint, but I saved judgment untill I watched the whole video.
In the "roof crash", you see the whole top of the cage crumble. This is 100% due to the fact the cage has tubes built in shear; triangulation meeting in the middle of a tube with no complimentary "flow" out of that intersection, or node, to somewhere else on the cage. The video proves the cage will crush in this area, and IMO, proves it was a poorly designed cage for roof impact; something that I noticed in the first images of the cage/chassis.
My point: that "A pillar" if you want to call it that, by the driver, is poorly supported and poorly designed and essentially has a built in crumple section that would personally raise a big red flag were that a "custom cage" on an offroad rig...
