I think it is better safe than sorry. A bar in a 13s car is probably not necessary, but when I got close to the 11s then I would suggest it. A cage can be quite cumbersome, but so can a casket.
I have found that if you get to know the track tech at your local track and sees that you are going above and beyond the NHRA/IHRA/ISCA/ORSCA rules, then he is probably NOT going to ride you arse about the vwery minute details later down the road.
Our local guys want to see you come back another day and spend some more money and be safe at the same time.
Follow the rules, prepare for the future and be safe.
Can you survive a 135mph roll without a bar or cage and live to talk about, probably, but I don't want to try it!
Good Luck Gino!
I hope we can meet in the future!
