    Custom 1/16 Summit/E revo Raptor Roll Cage

    ]Converted my E-revo into a Summit then decided to go all out and modify the entire truck.
    Built a custom aluminum roll cage for the Raptor body and new 3/8 aluminum body posts to allow for the bigger body clips to be used. Tried the whole velcro thing but found it to be to weak for actual hard driving. This is the final stage of the roll cage. After two months of tests and and ever evolving design found this to be an incredibly durable design. and so far bash proof. It has 8 points of contact, 4 to the body posts and 4 diretly to the chassis. Ive also added additional front and rear braces. And its extremely light.

    Thanks! Took a while to build and test. Yeah Ive already switched the tires around. Should have paid more attention when reinstalling them.
