    The cage is not for everyone, just the ones that enjoy having something different from the next guy... being different.
    I didn't say I crashed at 50 and didn't get banged up. I said I crashed at 50 and I didn't bang up anything that would have been saved by a cage. Meaning whatever I broke, would have broke anyway with or without a cage.

    Now if I get an E-Revo BE, I'd consider a cage of this sort. The car is very expensive and the motor and trans are right in the middle of the chassis, making them more exposed to damage.

    Here is a nice looking roll cage on a Slayer.

    http://monster.traxxas.com/showpost....5&postcount=14

    Both are nice, not sure which I like better.

    With the 3/16" tubing is it holding up well too impacts? Would filling it with foam add more strength with little added weight?

    What kind of cage is that? Will it fit the Slash?

The sad part is that you would probably never get paid enough by the average person for your time. CeeBlock brought up a good point about being able to buy one for under 100 bucks. The reason is because they are probably mass produced my machines. Yours are hand built. That takes time. I would love to check that rustler out in person next time I am in the Temecula area. I am planning to visit the ARC track in Vail Lake soon. Anyway good job. Can't wait to see what else you do to the slash.
    Yes it was actually Thanks, just PM me when you think your going to be in the area and we'll hook up.

    Ask him how does he get to his battery.
    Those cages are screwed to the chassis.

    If you look at the triangulation design and the even impact distribution points (that means all the bars connect with each other) you will see that it's made like a real race cage. The idea is to spread the impact throughout the whole chassis... so nothing bends on it's own.
    The cage I designed is designed for strength and accessibility to the battery and chassis... EASILY, with BODY CLIPS.
    It doesn't even compare to the others.

    Words cannot describe how awesome that cage is... You should powder coat it black, personally I think it would look a bit cleaner than the raw metal. But, that is still just amazing, very nice piece of work you have there.

    I've seen a pic of that buggy elsewhere. Didn't know it was in my town! Way to resurrect an old thread!
