Do you guys think my Hobart 135 amp 115 volt mig welder will be sufficient to weld .134 wall roll cage tubbing? (this welder is supposed to do 3/16 steel in one pass)

What do you guys think?

I'm not an expert but if it's anything like my Millermatic 130, then yes, no problem.

I think NHRA mandates 100A on welding the cage with a MIG. No flux core or stick welding allowed. Since you can't grind the welds either, I would opt to have it TIG'd so it's pretty where the welds show.
