    Usually Integy stuff is not held in high regards. I would steer clear.

    +1 that. I have been on this forum for about 6 weeks now and haven't heard a single kind word about Integy components!

    As bad as the name is and the cringe that comes along with it, from what I've heard their roll cages arent that bad. Along with a couple of others items on the same hand with that count.

    New Era offers roll cages to, but its not the full cage version. Being the Rally has an LCG chassis the side tubes would be to high to mount to it. You will still be able to mount front and back though.

    i do have some integy parts. never had any problems. i think integy got a bad rap on here. one person had a bad item so now it is spread all over. all it is is hearsay to me. its always i hear integy sucks. you have a hit/miss with all aluminum. just my 2 cents.

    Integy aluminum is soft, or I should say some parts are easily bendable, integy= shelf queens, bling bling, and waste of money, I have had bad experience with their parts, but like the story goes, to each his own. There are multiple posts on integy. Do your homework and good luck. This is JMO though, take it as a grain of salt!! God bless and have fun.

    I wanted the one in the picture on top I saw at the local hobby shop. And it looked Welbilt nice and stiff But the guy at the hobby store Said it might cause problems with my Chassi So I got cold feet and didn't get it That's why I'm asking you guys for your opinion "the pro's"

    I have two Integy roll cages, one on my Pede, one on my Slash. They both work well and are made of steel. After an upside down skid I hit it with some black paint and it's good as new.

    I'm on my phone and can't post pics but you can search for my thread to see pics of both trucks: Giving the old slash some love

    ^^ Theres one of the guys I thought was running one. My other buddy Itsstock has one on his Slash 4x4 too.

    O.G. I'm giving my Slash some TLC to. As in tearing it down and replacing some busted parts and upgrading to an RPM gearbox and AVID Triad Slipper.

    Nope... the vast MAJORITY of people on this forum who HAVE purchased an integy aluminum part have had bad experiences. there is a VERY short list of the parts that arent junk. Their tools are one, some like their 2X4 slash/pede gear box but I just think those people havent run their trucks hard enough. I had one and it bent almost immediately. I have heard their roll cages are good, but they are made of steel... if they cant get welded steel right everyone at integy should find new careers. Their parts are junk, their warranty is insulting and their reputation is VERY well earned (bad reputation that is).

    Agreed. Some people have to learn the hard way though.

    i really like reading your responses to alot of topics on the forum. they are very informative, and you are to the point. thanks. and i do agree there is a difference in opinions on daily hardcore racers, compared to just average weekend bashers. it is a wonder that integy isnt on the ban list.

    I'd like to add I use the roll cages instead of a body. I never use a lid over the roll cage and these last much longer than any lid I've had.
