If you look closely at the picture of the trunk area you can see that we installed the subframe reinforcement kit. I chose not to tie the cage into the subframe because A) I have a feeling the subframe reinforcement kit is going to be enough. B) If its not enough, and the plates begin to stress and crack, It is easy to run a couple of reinforcement bars down from the cage.

Once you start increasing the load paths
with greater Mechanical grip and the lateral
G forces rise due to Type R or Slick rubber
then you will be ripping out the rear subframe
on a Caged car.
Its a lot easier to strengthen than repair.
