hey has anyone thought about doing a metal rollcage besides me? I'm also thinking about going all carbon fiber with minimal aluminum pieces (only where needed for structural rigidness)

yeah wheeler we've seen pics of your paddles mounted backwards
Really Akela?? Might want to take a look at them again...they are not backward.

So was this just a personal flame? Or did you make an honest mistake?

I think that a metal roll cage would get damaged to easy.

The plastic cage is better, since it can flex in a hard crash, vs the metal cage will absorb the shock, transferring the shock to the chassis and/or bending the cage as well
