Total "strength" of the cage needs to take into account many factors, not just bracing (ex. material used, how tight the joints are, proper welds, wall thickness, etc.). Still a balancing act, though, but most of that stuff (baring wall thickness) doesn't affect the weight of the cage.No doubt a fine line. I just know when I rolled at the Soboba GP around 50 mph, I was glad to have the additional bracing and no damage to the car or rollcage. I guess it also depends how many times you want to build a cage too.
