i found this in the new issue of RCCA....it looks really strong. I don't have a slash, but i know i've been looking for one for my vxl rusty.
roll cages are scarce for the smaller traxxas vehicles, so i thought i'd pass on the info.
I race Associated, I bash Traxxas. 28 years in RC
thats nice, I wonder when someone is going to come out with some really sharp looking bumpers......
Change is coming in 2012!
looks good but will probably add a bit of weight. I love how light the Slash is and this would add some weight.
Rustler VXL, all FLM and RPM!
its only 6oz.. not much weight added at all.
I don't see any advantage in using one of those. They add a bling factor, but it'd make an already top heavy vehicle even worse. There are cheaper ways to add durability to your truck, like adding RPM parts instead.
I would like to see one installed.
This reminds me of my old Kyosho Javelin. There is something cool amd impractical about roll cages in r/c cars, but the scale effect is that much more fun.
We're talking 1987 here..

I wonder also. I would like to see bumpers that actually look like what they so on the real CORR trucks, not these oversized behemoths they have now.Originally Posted by JoseyWalesX
I look at it and first I think awesome, and then I think - umm, how do i get the batteries in?
My first:Originally Posted by AMZ
I painted mine the same as the yellow one. I even upgraded to aluminum shocks back then Must've been somewhere in the mid 80s, too long to know for sure.
Nice? yes. Worth 90 of my dollars? no
what i did was cut the bars on the top and left just the bottom bar to me it looks better i will post pix when i can

Why would the Slash need more protection? We have had head-on collision after head-on collision with ours, and the worst damage was a very lucky shot that took out a rear suspension arm. Other than that, we have had 3 shock caps come loose from the collisions. I'm not talking easy hits either. Full speed, demolition derby style hits. There is no mercy. We did it for 3 or 4 straight packs one time.
I'm so smrt. D'oh!
