    Looking to get a stampede and see some pretty cool rolcages on ebay. Why would someone get a rollcage? How does it benefit? Do you still run a body with a rollcage or is the rollcage your body? Does it help your body last longer fron cracking? Thanks guys. let me know

    They add weight and raise the COG.  It can make the truck a little more tippy.

    If Jesus was put to death 40yrs ago instead of 2000, would everyone be wearing little electric chairs around their necks?

    No, not a smart ass comment at all. Studies have shown that adding a roll cage to any vehicle actually INCREASES horsepower!

    RE: Why get a rollcage?

    Awhile back before the 2.4ghz days when AM was still in effect big time around 2006, I used to work in a Hobby store and sold Hard Bodyz roll cages. Just some points...

    Could be used without body, or even zip tie body panels on. If landing paint side down, the body would get damage from being pinched in between cage and ground, prone to grind holes.

    AM radios sometimes glitched bad with cages. Check antenna contact.

    It did add some weight, and was helpful on my Revo to keep front wheels on ground.

    If the cage front was in a wedge, and not just a square shape, it would push the vehicle lower to help protect parts when it jams under a parked car, THAT IS if the front bumper was low enough before entering under parked car.

    Get a roll cage that is higher than the top of the chassis and parts. Some guys had cages that the motor would stick out.

    Had a cage on my Revo when I bought it. Sent that pos to the scrap pile in no time. Heavy, ugly and always in the way when it came to wrenching on the truck. So haaving had one I see no reason why anyone would want one! Spend the money on something usefull.
