Depends on the car sometimes. A lot of major competators do reinforce their cars though. I've seen some put stuff in their doors, (even concrete) they put extra layers of metal over the doors, they get super heavy plexiglass or something similar and put that in place of anything glass, (they usually bolt it on). Sometimes they just put patches over the edges of the door and bolt everything shut, so the only door is the driver's.

if the walls, floors, roof...ect flex, you lose db's, or if the glass breaks, you lose almost all db's, lol

if your car is concrete, it won't flex, and plexiglass won't break so you won't lose anything

when your windshield blows off the car, thats when you know you need to do some bracing
