    Default Rollcage for my RC car

    Just thought I would post some pics of my latest boredom breaking project.
    It is made from 3/16" steel, bent by hand and welded with my Millermatic 175.
    The car is a Traxxas Rustler. It works good but might be a little heavy since I keep breaking suspension parts. It is allot of fun though.

    Looks sweet, I've been wanting to build one for my Revo, made a sprint car frame for my rc10gt years ago, but never put the truck in it

    This is looking awesome. Now you need a skid plate. Make sure you post this too.

    Default Thanks

    If anyone is going to make one here is what I suggest;
    In this pic Photo-0058.jpg the bottom rail on the side I would make lower to protect the middle of the chassis.
    3/16" steel is big enough.
    keep the cage over the shock towers to protect the top when you're upside down.
    Leave the roof open so you can get at the battery without taking the cage off
    and buy a few extra SPUR GEARS.
    Thanks for the comments.

    Daniel - Skid plate is good idea but my car is too low as is, maybe on Sammy's truck it would work better. Thanks

    Cool

    Put it on Pirate and see how long it takes for a "needs more triangulation." Nice job.
