I have seen those around this site a couple of times, i personally think they are the ugliest thing i have seen on a savage. they probably work amazing. I would never put one on my trucks, but im sure lots of people would, just my op.

ma1n5t has awesome cages. but at that price (usd $190+20 for shipping), its almost half the cost of a new rtr savage... simply too expensive

Aren't those just nylon rods and wood screws? People pay 200 bucks for that?

apparantly so
"From 12mm thick black solid nylon rods" (found this on another forum)

its funny, he also sells just the rod, 2 rods 12mm diameter at 800mm length, so 1.6meters in total for usd$53.22 + $20 shipping...
where as you can buy 2meters of 16mm diameter rods for $10.50 + $6.80 shipping...

i got these e-quotes from a uk based company called [link=http://hobbyplastic.co.uk/]hobby plastic[/link]

i just don't see the point of spending hundreds of your hard earnt dollars (or whatever currency) on something you can make you self... but thats just me

if you make it your self, no matter how ugly it is, you can design it to be covered by a body.

also, if your making a rollcage to use without a body, you can always give it a custom look by dying it in hot(but not boiling) water filled with acid-based dye...
checkout this video if you wanna see how to dye plastics. but only from a lighter colour to darker
