The GTs had bolt-on roofs because the rules they were running under mandated a "fixed roof".

I have heard from a number of sources, including several that I trust quite a bit, that the FG roof panel does indeed reduce chassis flex. It does not eliminate it (not by a long shot!!) but it does reduce it. A steel roof would do more.

A cage, roof on or off, does a whole lot more to stiffen the chassis.
