    How heavy is yours

    For the people who know my truck "Reaper" I have a lot of upgrades and mods done to my truck but I notice it is quite heavy I wanna keep my vg role cage on to protect the motor when flipping over, so I'm just curious to how heavy your guyses trucks are? And is there a strong role cage out there that'll fit with a 2200 kv motor?

    My trucks range from 13 1/2 to 15lbs. I also have one of those vg cages hanging on the wall. It weighs about a pound witch is why its hanging on the wall. There strong and I like the way they mount in the bumpers but there heavy.

    Yeah mines about 15 lbs also without the batteries but I don't wanna risk damaging the motor without a cage it's pretty much necessary for bashing
